Title IX is a federal civil rights law passed as part of the Education Amendments of 1972. This law protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance. Title IX states that:

“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”

Consistent with the requirement of Title IX, Noorda College of Osteopathic Medicine does not discriminate against students, faculty, or staff based on sex in its programs and activities, including but not limited to educational programs, employment, and admission.  Sexual harassment, including sexual violence, is a kind of sex discrimination and is prohibited by Title IX and Noorda-COM.

It is the policy of Noorda College of Osteopathic Medicine to admit qualified students irrespective of race, ethnicity, age, sex, gender, color, creed, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, or disability.  To be considered for admission, a student must possess the academic credentials and professional attributes deemed essential by the admissions committee for selection to the program.

Admission requirements for the current academic year are listed on the admissions page.
