Secondary Application

Secondary applications will be sent to all eligible applicants upon AMCAS verification. If you received an email with login credentials for the MCW Secondary Application, please complete the application.


Our forms are in PDF format. You will need the free Adobe Reader to view and print the forms.

  • Dean's Certification: If you indicated on the AMCAS or our Secondary Application that an institutional action has been taken against you, this form is to be forwarded to the appropriate office at the institution with an explanation for verification. It will then be sent directly to us. If an action is indicated, this form is required to complete the application.
  • Wisconsin Residency Form: If you are a Wisconsin resident or are going to claim residency this form is to be completed and forwarded to the Higher Educational Aids Board in Madison, WI.
  • Technical Standards: Technical Standards consist of the minimum physical, cognitive and emotional requirements to provide reasonable assurance that candidates or students can complete the entire course of study and participate fully in all aspects of medical training.
  • Certification of Finances: If you are not a US Citizen, you must submit the Certification of Finances form and documentation to the Financial Aid office. You are encouraged to complete and submit this documentation early; this is not required to complete your application but needs to be submitted and approved well in advance of matriculation.
