Early Assurance Program

The Early Assurance Program grants admission into Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine for selected undergraduate students of Central State University, the University of Dayton, Wilberforce University and Wright State University. Through this program, premedical students apply in their sophomore year and are conditionally accepted as medical students at the completion of their undergraduate work. The Early Assurance Program removes the uncertainty of acceptance into medical school, allows participants to focus on their undergraduate education and community service experiences and provides enrichment opportunities.

apples Applications are due May 1 of the sophomore year for medical school entry after completion of the senior year. For more information, view the brochure. To apply, download and submit this application.
