To be eligible to participate in the GC Admissions Match, a program must be a Full Member or Associate Member of AGCPD in good standing, and either (i) be accredited by the Accreditation Council for Genetic Counseling (ACGC), or (ii) have approved Candidacy status by ACGC by August 1, 2019, and have received permission from AGCPD to participate in the Match.
Programs that are not accredited by March 15, 2020, or are accredited with any contingency that prevents the program from accepting a new class of students, will not be able to participate in the Match. Programs that receive accreditation after March 15, 2020 and want to recruit students for a fall 2020 start date may participate in the Post-Match Process.
To register for the Match, the program must agree to abide by the Schedule of Dates of the Match and the Rules of Participation.
Eligible programs will receive a registration e-mail from the GC Admissions Match. If you have not received a personalized e-mail to register your program for the GC Admissions Match by July 31, 2019, please contact NMS.
Consult the Registration User Guide for step-by-step instructions for registering for the GC Admissions Match.
After You Register
After the online registration process is complete, you will receive a confirmation by e-mail which will include the Match Code Number(s) for each track registered for the Match.
You should provide the Match Code Number(s) of your track(s) to each of your applicants, as the Code Number(s) uniquely identify your track(s) in the Match. This is particularly relevant for programs that are offering more than one track in the Match.
Updating Your Program and Track Information
Once you are registered for the Match, you can log in to the NMS Match System to update your program or track information. This includes modifying the number of positions offered by a track in the Match, changing the description of a track, adding an additional track to your program, withdrawing a track from the Match if you no longer intend to offer any positions in the track, or modifying your contact information.
