  1. Go to Create your account here, found beneath the "Welcome to the MSU Community" box.

  2. Enter your first and last name.

  3. Enter an existing email address to use as your Community ID. This email address will be used to communicate Community ID login and change information to you. It must be an established email address that you are able to log into.

  4. Enter the two words in the white security box where indicated.

  5. Log into the email account you are using as your Community ID and find the message entitled, "MSU Community ID Account Created - Please Complete Setup." Click on the link within the email to finish creating your Community ID.

  6. Select a Security Question using the drop-down box.

  7. Supply an answer to the Security Question.

    • one or more lower case letters

    • one or more numeric characters

    • one or more special characters (such as * & % $ # @).

Early Assurance Program Application

Applicants must complete the no-cost online application by February 18, 2015, 11:59 pm EST. Transcripts and letters of evaluation are also required; your premedical advisor will include them within the program endorsement packet they send to us.

  • Please review the EAP FAQ for instructions on completing the application.

  • Three to five letters of evaluation must be submitted in support of your application. You can find detailed information on letter requirements on our Early Assurance Letters of Evaluation page.

  • All EAP applicants must take the MCAT no later than May 22, 2015.

Selection Process 

The College of Human Medicine will review all application materials and subsequently issue interview invitations to selected applicants the third week of March. Interview Day will be held on April 10, 2015 at the East Lansing Campus. Applicants invited to interview must complete a secondary application prior to Interview Day.

The decision to admit an EAP applicant to the College rests with the Committee on Admissions. Applicants who interview for the program will be notified of the Committee’s final decision in mid-June, after all MCAT scores have been received.

Applicants accepted to the program will begin an active relationship with the College during their senior year. Unsuccessful applicants may begin the regular AMCAS application process without delay.

Accepted EAP students will be able to select their preclinical campus. Students in the program may engage in research, seek a dual degree, or defer matriculation if they wish.

Since acceptance to medical school has already been secured, EAP students are able to spend their senior undergraduate year conducting research, participating in Study Abroad, or pursuing other personal or academic interests.
