Webinars

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).

Attention Applicants

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.
