Fees for ERAS Residency Applications
ERAS application fees are based on the number of programs applied to per specialty. MyERAS automatically calculates your fees and you can pay online using Visa or MasterCard.
Note: AOA-accredited program application fees are assessed separately, see example 5 below.
Programs Per Specialty
Up to 10
11 - 20
21 - 30
31 or more
Example 1: 30 Emergency Medicine programs [$99.00 + (10 x $13.00) + (10 x $17.00)] = $399.00
Example 2: 20 OB/GYN programs [$99.00 + (10 X $13.00)] + 10 Family Medicine programs [$99.00] = $328.00
Example 3: 23 Internal Medicine programs [$99.00 + (10 X $13.00) + (3 X $17.00)] + 7 Radiology programs [$99.00] = $379.00
Example 4: 12 Internal Medicine programs [$99.00 + (2 X $12.00)] + 10 Emergency Medicine [$99.00] + 8 Family Medicine programs [$99.00] = $323.00
Example 5: 3 ACGME-accredited Family Medicine programs [$99.00] + 3 AOA-accredited Family Medicine programs [$99.00] = $198.00
USMLE Transcript: $80 (assessed once per season)

Credit Card (Visa or MasterCard only)
Note: Applicants who pay their ERAS fees using a credit card will see those charges reflected as "AAMC" on their credit card statement.
ERAS does not offer refunds for any reason. Refunds will not be given for applications sent to nonparticipating programs.
Although we make every effort to ensure that our data is up-to-date, programs may not always communicate to ERAS their intention to accept applications; or a program's status may change. Therefore, it is your responsibility to confirm that you meet all eligibility requirements and program deadlines before applying by contacting programs directly.
ERAS's primary role is to deliver your application and supporting documents to designated programs. This is no different than placing a stamp on an envelope and requesting USPS deliver the packet to a destination. Once you apply to a program and submit payment through MyERAS, service has been rendered and your application has been delivered.
Consequences of Overdue Balances
If your account has an unpaid balance, the AAMC will revoke your access to MyERAS. In addition, ERAS will contact your Designated Dean's Office as well as ERAS business partners, including EFDO and ECFMG, to prohibit your access to ERAS until the debt is paid in full. This policy applies to current and future ERAS seasons, as long as your debt is outstanding. Moreover, if you do not satisfy your debt, your access to other AAMC services will also be revoked.
