Congratulations on taking the next step! We look forward to receiving your application.
Please note that many of our programs have made exceptions to the application process and admissions requirements due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic response. Additionally, references to in-person campus visits, events, lab work, or classroom interactions should be read in light of current campus health and safety guidelines, which continue to evolve in response to changing conditions. More information can be found on WesternU’s COVID-19 Information page. Please contact us if you have any questions or need further information.
2022 Application Primary Application
Opens: August 2, 2021
Closes: June 30, 2022 (11:59 pm EST)
All application materials must be received on or before the deadline. Application materials received after the deadline are considered late and may not be processed.
Please begin by submitting your primary application to the American Association of Colleges of Podiatric Medicine Application Service (AACPMAS). WesternU’s College of Podiatric Medicine has a rolling admission process which in essence means that the earlier you submit your application the more seats there are available for which you could be selected. In contrast, the later you apply, the more competition you will have as many of the seats will have already been filled. With this in mind, we encourage you to submit your application as soon as the cycle opens.
To give you peace of mind, we will e-mail you when we receive your AACPMAS application. Once your application is complete, it will be sent to the Admissions Committee for interview consideration. If you are selected for interview, we will contact you to schedule a date. Interviews are conducted on a rolling basis throughout the admissions cycle.
We are happy to answer your questions as you navigate through the application process, so please do not hesitate to contact us if we can help.
Standards of Academic and Professional Conduct
WesternU and CPM expect all students to adhere to the standards of professional conduct as published in the University Catalog. Violation of this code of conduct may result in the suspension of application and/or other actions, including rescission of your admission to podiatry school, or the possibility of dismissal from the College of Podiatric Medicine, if enrolled.
