We strongly encourage students to consider completing Pre-Medical requirements at Texas A&M-Commerce, which is located approximately an hour away from Dallas, TX.

Students also have the option to stay back and earn another 30 credits to graduate with a Bachelor of Science Degree from Texas A&M University AND enjoy a guaranteed acceptance to the 4 year MD program at IAU. MCAT is not required for students completing the Pre-Med program at Texas A&M Commerce.
Completing Pre-Medical requirements at an accredited US University such as Texas A&M Commerce is looked upon favorably by various State Licensing Boards that enforce special regulations on pre-medical education for licensure purposes.
