International/Off Shore Medical Students

UCSF Fresno does not routinely accept international medical students or students from non LCME or non AOA accredited medical schools.  On occasion, an exception to this policy is made, for students that demonstrate close and specific ties to the Fresno area.  Affiliation agreements with offshore or international institutions does not guarantee a rotation as only students with strong central valley ties will be considered. 

Please review the UCSF Fresno International Student Policy for additional details and information.

The fee for international applications is $1040 per 4 week elective plus housing costs—if housing is requested.
