Saba, along with its sister schools Medical University of the Americas and St. Matthew’s University, offer the unprecedented opportunity to apply to up to three top Caribbean medical schools at once! By submitting just one set of documents and participating in one interview, you can receive admissions decisions from any or all of the three medical schools. And there is no application fee! Just tell us to which of the three medical schools you would like to apply, and in what order. And, it is just as easy (and free) to apply only to Saba, if that is what you prefer.
Saba and its sister schools accept applications throughout the year. First semester classes begin in January, May and September.

Saba University School of Medicine believes in being transparent regarding the admissions and acceptance process. While we believe that there is much more to the decision to admit a student than just grades and test scores, transcripts and MCAT exams scores are an integral part of our decision.
We invite interested candidates to submit transcripts and other pertinent data to the Admission’s Office in advance of starting an application for a preliminary review. We will get back to you with an indication of whether it would be prudent to move forward with the formal application or suggestions on areas requiring more focus to strengthen the application.
We look forward to furthering a dialogue with you.
Please email us copies of your unofficial transcripts and/or MCAT scores to Admissions@Saba.edu.
