    Who are Non-Traditional Applicants?

    TMDSAS is committed to supporting non-traditional applicants to Texas' medical, dental, and veterinary schools.

    We consider non-traditional applicants to be those older than 25 years of age or are reapplicants, however, these resources are applicable to all applicants.

    If you have any specific questions or concerns, please reach us at nontraditional@tmdsas.com.
