How Does ERAS Work?

  • Applicants receive an electronic token from their Designated Dean's Office and use it to register with MyERAS.
  • Applicants complete their MyERAS application, select programs, assign supporting documents, and transmit their application to programs.
  • Schools receive notification of the completed application, and start transmitting supporting documents: transcripts, LoRs, photographs, MSPE.
  • Examining boards receive and process requests for score reports.
  • Programs contact the ERAS PostOffice on a regular basis to download application materials.
