Accepted applicants are required to pay a nonrefundable deposit of $2,000. ACOM follows the suggested deposit guidelines established by AACOMAS.
- Applicants accepted prior to November 15 have until December 14 to make their deposit.
- Applicants accepted between November 15 and January 14 have 30 days to pay their deposit.
- Applicants accepted between January 15 and April 30 have 14 days to pay their deposit.

After May 1 of the year of matriculation, ACOM has the right to implement specific procedures for accepted students who hold one or more seats at other medical colleges.
Matriculation is conditional until all official transcripts are received from schools attended. ACOM can use final transcripts submitted with the AACOMAS application. All complete transcripts must be on file prior to matriculation. It is expected that all prerequisite courses, course work listed on the AACOMAS application, and baccalaureate degree requirements will be completed by July 1 of the matriculation year at ACOM.
Matriculation packets are emailed to deposited students usually around February 1 of each year. Packets include information on how to obtain the required drug screen and background check, ordering medical equipment, health insurance, and immunization records.
ACOM requires all students to adhere to ACOM’s Technical Standards for Admission and Matriculation and Osteopathic Principles and Practice (OPP) Mandatory Course Requirements.
Note: Discovery after admission or matriculation of intentional misrepresentation or omission of any information use in the application process or omission of information relative to scholastic records or test records will subject the student to dismissal. Matriculation will be denied to applicants who have failed to maintain a good record of scholastic performance and/or personal conduct between the time of their acceptance and their matriculation at the College. The College reserves the right to deny admission to any applicant for any reason it deems sufficient.
