Congratulations on taking the next step! We look forward to receiving your application.

Many of our programs have made exceptions to the application process and requirements due to circumstances from the COVID-19 pandemic response at WesternU. Any references to in-person campus visits, events, lab work, or classroom interactions must be read in light of social distancing recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). WesternU has implemented remote teaching and learning across all campuses and only essential personnel are on campus at this time. Please contact us if you have any questions or need further information.

Application Process

Please begin by submitting your primary application to the American Association of Colleges of Podiatric Medicine Application Service (AACPMAS). WesternU’s College of Podiatric Medicine has a rolling admission process which in essence means that the earlier you submit your application the more seats there are available for which you could be selected. In contrast, the later you apply, the more competition you will have as many of the seats will have already been filled. With this in mind, we encourage you to submit your application as soon as the cycle opens.

Next Steps

To give you peace of mind, we will e-mail you when we receive your AACPMAS application. Once your application is complete, it will be sent to the Admissions Committee for interview consideration. If you are selected for interview, we will contact you to schedule a date. Interviews are conducted on a rolling basis throughout the admissions cycle.

We are happy to answer your questions as you navigate through the application process, so please do not hesitate to contact us if we can help.

Standards of Academic and Professional Conduct

WesternU and CPM expect all students to adhere to the standards of professional conduct as published in the University Catalog. Violation of this code of conduct may result in the suspension of application and/or other actions, including rescission of your admission to podiatry school, or the possibility of dismissal from the College of Podiatric Medicine, if enrolled.
