We are accepting applications for the Genetic Counsling Graduate Program for the 2019 - 2020 academic year!

Applications are due January 1, 2019.


A maximum of five students will be admitted to the UAGCGP for the 2019-2020 academic year. Students who are admitted to the UAGCGP will be notified by the UA Graduate College and the UAGCGP.

The UAGCGP applied for accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Genetic Counseling in the fall of 2017. This process can take up to 8 - 12 months. Notifications of acceptance into the UAGCGP will not be distributed until the program is granted New Program Status from the Accreditation Council for Genetic Counseling.

Pending approval of accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Genetic Counseling, the UAGCGP will participate in the NMS Match system for the 2019 - 2020 academic year.
