Step 2: Complete the VA-MD Vet Med Application Processing Fee by Sept. 29, 2021

  • The supplemental application questions appear on VA-MD Vet Med's Program Materials page on VMCAS.
  • Enter your VMCAS ID number and the email address used on your VMCAS application.
  • Submit a non-refundable $60.00 processing fee.
  • Your application will not be considered complete until the processing fee has been paid.

Upload the Virginia or Maryland residency form to the "Documents" section under VA-MD Vet Med's Program Materials on the VMCAS application.

West Virginia residents

Please note:

  • If you do not meet the residency application deadlines, it will be assumed that you are an at-large applicant, a status that will remain even after acceptance and matriculation.
  • If you are active or retired military and plan on initiating your VA benefits to cover tuition and fees, you must still meet our  application deadlines. Because an applicant is not able to change residency after acceptance, you are required to notify us at the time of application that you intend to seek VA benefits if accepted into the program.

Transfer information

  • VA-MD Vet Med no longer accepts transfer students into our program.
