Admissions interviews began in early 2017, and our incoming class for this year is nearly half full. If you would like to attend SIOM this fall, we encourage you to submit your application soon. Even if your prerequisites are not complete, you can apply and be accepted as long as they are finished prior to the first day of classes.

How to Apply

Before You Apply:

Before you apply, we encourage you to visit the school, take a tour, sit in on classes, and get a treatment in the teaching clinic in order to become more familiar with our programs.  Also please read the admissions information provided on this site as well as in our catalog (link in left menu bar).  If you have questions not addressed in either of those places, contact us at for more information.
