I noticed the AAMC has begun to collect and remit applicable state and local sales tax. Will this affect VSLO?
Yes, in certain states, these applicable taxes will affect VSLO services. Please visit the AAMC Sales Tax FAQs to learn more.
Do students pay application fees per elective or per institution?
The VSLO program charges a flat fee of $15 per application. Application fees are per elective regardless of requested dates for that elective.
Note: Any unused credits carried over from 2020 will be honored through their one-year expiration date.
Can I create specific requirements for certain electives?
Yes, as a host institution, you can create different requirements for specific electives. If a department requires an additional requirement, you have the ability to create and tailor requirements for certain electives or an institution can also tailor requirements for different student populations.
Will I receive incomplete applications from students who have not submitted all of the requirements?
No. You will only receive completed applications that includes submitted requirements. Applications can only move to the next phase once all requirements have been submitted.
Is there a process for providing feedback on the VSLO service?
You can provide feedback directly via our VSLO Feedback Form, or contact our Visiting Student Client Service team at 202-478-9878.
