American University of the Caribbean (AUC)

American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine (AUC)

Location and Contact Information:

General Admissions Information:

  • Average GPA: 3.3
  • Average MCAT: 25

Application Tips:

  • AUC has rolling admissions, which means first come first serve. They admit three classes per year: September, January, and May. Do not feel rushed to send out the application if you are not ready. You will not have to wait long if you miss one application cycle.

Class Size (per trimester):

  • entering in September – 200
  • entering in January – 100
  • entering in May – 100

Attrition Rate (people who leave and do not graduate from the school):

  • 13%


  • AUC’s clinical rotations take place predominantly in the US. They have many affiliated hospitals, which are pretty much on the east coast of the US. Its students do not face difficulty getting rotational stops during clinical years.


  • As of 2011-2012, AUC’s tuition is $17,000 – $19,000 per trimester. There are a total of 9.5 trimesters. The total tuition for the medical education is $170,000, which is comparable to a private medical school in the US.

(Disclaimer: I wrote this article in 2011 or 2012. A lot of the statistics could have changed since then. However, I do not have a better impartial source comparing all the schools, which is why I resorted to some random AUC student’s blog as a source of data for class size and attrition rate. It may or may not be accurate. Do your own research when choosing a Caribbean school. And if you can, go to an American medical school — DO or MD.)
