Step 2: Complete VA-MD CVM Application Processing Fee

Note: The supplemental application questions will all be on VA-MD's page on VMCAS.

Step 3: Submit residency forms (VA/MD/WV applicants only)

Residency forms

  • Virginia residents — September 15 deadline
  • Maryland residents — September 15 deadline
  • Please upload Virginia or Maryland residency form on the "Documents" section of our supplemental application on VMCAS.
  • West Virginia residents — September 15 deadline
  • Please visit http://davismichael.wvu.edu for more information and contact Kimberly Mouser at kimberly.mouser@mail.wvu.edu with questions regarding West Virginia residency.

  • Please note:
    • If you do not meet the residency application deadlines, it will be assumed that you are an at-large applicant, a status that will remain even after acceptance and matriculation.
    • If you are active or retired military and plan on initiating your VA benefits to cover tuition and fees, you must still meet our domicile application deadlines. An applicant is not able to change residency after acceptance; therefore, you are required to notify us at the time of application that you intend to seek VA benefits if accepted into the program.

» Important information for the 2020-2021 application cycle: Unfortunately, we find it necessary to cancel all in-person interviews for this cycle as we are committed to the safety of our applicants and the college community. This is a provisional decision with the goal of resuming in-person interviews for the 2021-2022 admissions cycle. These decisions are, of course, dependent on COVID-19.
