You are considered an international applicant if you need a visa in order to reside and study in the United States.  If you are a U.S. citizen, permanent resident, refugee or asylee, you will be considered a domestic applicant even if you currently reside outside the United States.

Prospective international medical students are required to complete the School of Medicine's Financial Statement to verify sufficient financial support to pursue their medical education at UC Davis.  Non-residents of the United States are ineligible for financial aid, and should not expect to obtain financial aid after arrival at UC Davis.  Therefore it is critical to secure an adequate, reliable and continuing source of funding for your entire course of study before deciding to come to the United States.
