CYMST Policies

CYMST Tool Policy- UNMC COM 2020-2021  

Important Dates & Choose your Medical School Tool:  

University of Nebraska College of Medicine- ACCEPTED STUDENTS (Regular M.D, EDP, OSP, M.D/Graduate Designations). 

February 19: “Plan to Enroll” option for accepted students becomes available. Highly recommended (but not required). Accepted students in a Plan to Enroll status can maintain alternate/waitlist positions and acceptances from other institutions. You can only “Plan to Enroll” at one institution. If you have multiple offers, you can adjust your “Plan to Enroll” selection.   

April 15: The AAMC Application and Acceptance Protocols recommends accepted students narrow offers to three medical schools (if applicable).  

April 30: “Commit to Enroll” option for accepted students becomes available. From April 30, 2021 prior to Orientation, “Commit to Enroll” is available and recommended (but not required). Accepted students should utilize this tool when they are ready to commit and are withdrawing all other applications. This includes any acceptances and alternate positions at other institutions.  

May 1: Accepted applicants to UNMC should “Plan to Enroll” to signify they want to hold acceptance to UNMC COM among other acceptances.  

July 19: It is required that all UNMC accepted students select “Commit to Enroll”.  All UNMC COM accepted students who intend to matriculate must remove themselves from all alternate lists and any accepted positions at other institutions.  Using the “Commit to Enroll” status does not remove you from ongoing consideration at another institution. Make sure you reach out to the institution you are withdrawing from to follow the appropriate process. Failure to select “Commit to Enroll” to UNMC by July 19 could result in retraction of the admission offer to UNMC College of Medicine.
