Grading System Updates for AMCAS Verification
At the beginning of each year, AMCAS will email a letter to your office requesting updated grading information. Obtaining this vital data helps us verify applications properly and ensures students are represented accurately to their prospective medical schools. For questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
eTranscripts for Registrars
AMCAS accepts official PDF eTranscripts from:
All eTranscripts must be in PDF format and conform to the Postsecondary Electronic Standards Council (PESC) PDF Attachment standard.
AMCAS is equipped to work with third-party vendors that provide transcript fulfillment services to send transcripts directly to AMCAS. If your transcript orders are managed by a third-party vendor, please contact your vendor account representative to determine whether your students’ transcripts can be sent to AMCAS electronically.
AMCAS Opening Cycle Webinar for Registrars
This webinar helps undergraduate institution registrars and prehealth advisors better understand AMCAS policies and procedures around transcript receipt and processing. The presentation also highlights the AMCAS grading system and grade conversions, transcript processing procedures, and policies and resources for the 2022 application cycle. Access the video and PowerPoint slides (PDF).
Please do not ask your registrar to send your transcripts to email@example.com. Only AMCAS-approved senders can submit PDF eTranscripts to AMCAS. We will not accept PDF eTranscripts by email or any other way.
Requesting an electronic transcript from a school that is not approved will result in delays for your application, as you will have to submit another request to your registrar for a paper transcript. AMCAS continues to accept official paper transcripts from all institutions. Please make sure that you are using the correct AAMC and Transcript IDs to prevent any processing delays.
