Default Medical school not yet accredited?

Good morning fellows, the following question was issued to me by a friend who happens to study in a not-yet accredited medical school here in Argentina.

So basically he's in third year of medical school (here in Argentina our education takes 6 years) and he's thinking about taking the steps. The only problem being is that his medical school is not in the IMED. The question is: if the school gets accredited and listed in the following months, would he still be eligible to apply for the steps? Or does he have to do the WHOLE career into an accredited school?

Please, anything you can give me will certainly help. Thanks a lot.
