Entering Your Coursework Made Easy in 5 Steps
Entering coursework is an important part of your application. Although it may seem
daunting, we have provided some great resources to help you along the way!
It provides step-by-step instructions on how to enter your coursework. You can also watch the Completing the Coursework Section video posted on the TMDSAS website, and you can listen to Episode 50 of the Inside Health Education Podcast (under TMDSAS Advice) for even more information
on entering coursework
Keep an eye out for more tips listed in the Application Handbook!
These are normally located at the bottom or top of pages and look like this
→ Have all official transcripts from each school you attended ready in hand by the time you start the coursework section of the application.
Unofficial transcripts often show course information differently than official transcripts, so in order to get the best idea about how to enter your coursework, we suggest using official transcripts.
→ If your institution is not listed on the Course Listings, don’t panic!
Use the Prescribed Coursework Definitions located on the TMDSAS website and code your courses using your best judgment.
Remember, TMDSAS will code your courses accordingly when processing your application. There's no need to stress over course area designation if you are unsure.
→ All coursework should be listed in the [College Coursework] section of your application.
This includes withdrawn courses. If you've withdrawn from a course and that course appears on your official transcript with zero hours listed, you should list the number of credits the course is worth.
Don’t forget AP Credit!
If you have AP credit, exam credit, and dual credit courses listed on your official transcript, they must be included when entering your coursework. (Application Handbook, p. 27)
→ Please be sure to include ALL planned coursework.
If you are unsure on what to take, you will put a placeholder.
