March 21, 2017, Tour & Transcript Review Day at Rocky Vista University

We wanted to let you know that we have scheduled a Tour and Transcript review day at Rocky Vista University’s Colorado campus for March 21, 2017. The tour will begin promptly at 2:00 pm. However, we will be hosting one-on-one appointments with interested students for a transcript review and basic advise for applying to medical school. We do request that anyone interested in a transcript review RSVP to our Admissions email ( as appointments are limited and tend to fill up very quickly (lately all spaces have been filled 2 months before the date). We planned this date to coincide with your spring break. 

Best Wishes,
