No. Roseman University is a private institution and we welcome applicants from any state or territory of the United States, Canada and other foreign countries. Applicants who are not U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents are encouraged to review University policies on International Students. Each applicant’s credentials will be reviewed by the same criteria.
4. Does Roseman University accept transfer or advanced standing students?
Due to the unique structure of its curriculum and evaluation system, the CODM does not admit transfer students or advanced standing students. Students who wish to enroll at the CODM will be evaluated with all other students applying to the first year class.

To be considered for admission, scores on Academic Average, Total Science, Reading Comprehension and Perceptual Ability must be 17 or higher. Competitive scores will generally be 20 or higher.

If a candidate has not achieved a score of 17 on Academic Average, Total Science, Reading Comprehension and Perceptual Ability on the most recent DAT test taken, the candidate’s file will be put on hold pending receipt of new scores. If these scores are not achieved, the applicant will be denied admission at the end of that cycle. Candidates are encouraged to access information about the DAT at http://www.ada.org/dat.aspx.
