2024-2025 First Year Registration

Welcome to the first year of medical school!  Classes begin on Monday, July 22, 2024.

As we prepare for your transition to medical school, all students must first self-register for the fall term.  Registration is open June 1, 2024 – July 1, 2024.  You should have already received an email from the Admissions Office about how to log in to the TouroOne Portal and establish your NYMC email account.  For logging in and account questions, please contact the helpdesk.

The TouroOne Portal will be your online hub as an NYMC student, linking you to your email account, student services (online registration, payment, financial aid), and academic resources (course content within the LCMS+ learning management system, library resources), and much more.

Prior to the start of class, please complete the following requirements.

1) Register for Classes > June 1, 2024 – July 1, 2024

    1. Log in to the TouroOne Portal
    2. Click the Registration on left blue side bar
