Frequently Asked Questions

How can I find out more about the program?

  • We host informational sessions multiple times throughout the year. Virtual attendance is always available if you are unable to come to campus. See our Events page for upcoming dates.

Do I need to submit applications to both Eastern Michigan University and OPCAS?

  • Yes. Eastern requires all official transcripts and your GRE scores to be sent directly here. All other materials will be accessed through OPCAS (they will also require your transcripts).

Where should I send my transcripts?

Do I need to complete the background check before applying?

  • No, but you will need a clean background check before starting your clinical rotations. We want to make certain applicants know this when applying.

Is an interview required for the application?

  • Some applicants may be asked to participate in on-line interviewing.
