What You'll Need to Apply

You will need to complete or submit the following items to be admitted to WUB:

  • Completed application: Complete the online application to WUB. There is no fee to submit the application.
  • Personal statement: Provide a personal statement no longer than 750 words concerning your medical career expectations. WUBAS (Washington University of Barbados Application Service) personal statements will also be accepted.
  • History: Chronological listing of educational, employment, and volunteer experience dating back to high school.
  • Official transcripts: Official transcripts must be sent to WUB, directly from the college registrar in an official sealed envelope. For foreign schools, notarized copies of the original transcripts may be directed to WUB when official transcripts are not readily available. However, official transcripts must follow the notarized copies prior to matriculation. Please note that all foreign transcripts must be evaluated by a credentialing service that is a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES). A listing of credentialing members can be found at
  • Official MCAT report: MCAT scores are required for medical school admission to WUB and must be taken within the last 5 years. Applicants must request the MCAT scores be sent directly from the testing agency to WUB’s Administrative Office. The code for WUB is 907.
  • Letters of Recommendation: Official letters from a Pre-Medical Advisory Committee are strongly recommended, however, we will accept a minimum of 1 letter from an individual academic professor who has taught the applicant (science preferable, but not required) and 1 professional letter. Additional letters of recommendation from professors or employers with details of previous medical experience will be accepted to further support the applicant’s candidacy to medical school. These letters must appear on original letterhead stationery and be directly sent from the individual offering the recommendation. Letters of recommendation are accepted through Interfolio and Virtual Evals.

We recommend that WUB applicants send in required items as they become available. For example, prospective applicants do not need to have received his or her MCAT score to start the application process. Also, please note that all documents sent to WUB become the property of WUB.
