Trascript Processing

During the 2021 application cycle, AMCAS is accepting transcripts from registrars electronically (i.e., Parchment, National Student Clearinghouse, etc.), by email, fax, and mail. Processing timelines vary based on the mode of transmission to AMCAS.

Once transcripts are received by AMCAS, it can take up to 15 business days to process electronic, email, and fax transcripts; mailed transcripts can take up to 25 business days to process from the date sent.

Please reference the tables below to find the latest date your transcript will be processed based on the mode of transmission to AMCAS. If it is past the indicated date and your transcript is not marked “Received,” please follow the instructions under the transcript FAQs to escalate your case.
