Pre-Med Q&ACategory: MiscellaneousCLAM violation?
Avatar asked 2 years ago

If you had a CLAM housing violation, do you need to report it on AMCAS? My housing director had sent me a confirmation email saying that it will not constitute a disciplinary record

This is what I was able to find with regards to your question: 

Here is the AAMC’s official stance on Institutional Actions:
If you were ever the recipient of any institutional action by any college or medical school for unacceptable academic performance or conduct violation, you must answer ‘Yes’, even if such action did not interrupt your enrollment or require you to withdraw. Furthermore, select ‘Yes’, even if the action does not appear on, or has been deleted or expunged from, your official transcripts as a consequence of institutional policy or personal petition.
Failure to provide an accurate answer to the question about institutional action or, if applicable, failure to complete the form provided by the school will result in an investigation. If an action you did not report is listed on your transcript, AMCAS will report the institutional action on your application. Medical schools require you to answer the question accurately and provide all relevant information. Medical schools understand that many individuals learn from the past and emerge stronger as a result. Full disclosure will enable medical schools to evaluate the information more effectively within the context of your application.
Furthermore, in the event that an Institutional Action occurs after you have already submitted your application, AMCAS requires that you, inform the Admissions Office of each medical school where you are applying, and you must do so, within ten (10) business days of the date of the occurrence.
This text was from this website:
However, given that you received an email confirming that the CLAM housing violation will not constitute a disciplinary record, I’m not sure we can answer the question to your situation fully. I believe that asking your question to a (pre-health) advisor might also give you a better answer. I hope this helps!
