Admissions and legacies

Rush University alumni with family members interested in a career in the health sciences can learn more about Rush University admissions.

If you are a Rush University alumnus, and your family member is specifically interested in Rush Medical College and has not yet submitted their AMCAS application, they are invited to attend an upcoming Legacy Day to learn more about medical school admissions and hear from current medical students about the application process.

If you are a Rush University alumnus, and your family member (child, grandchild, sibling or spouse/partner) is graduating from Rush University, you and your family may enjoy special designation at the Commencement ceremony. Students will indicate their legacy status on the Intent to Graduate Form in advance of the Commencement ceremony, and further information will be made available at that time.

If you have additional questions, please contact Anna Gettings in the Office of Alumni Relations at or (312) 942-7199. 

A parent, sister/brother or spouse/same-sex domestic partner of a student who holds the rank of instructor or above on the Rush University faculty or is a current member of the Board of Trustees or Board of Governors may be eligible to present the graduate’s diploma. For information about diploma presentation, please contact the Rush University Registrar at
