AMCAS for Registrars
Grading System Updates for AMCAS Verification
Review the information in the Registrar Letter to make sure that your institutions calendar and grading system information is current. Doing so helps AMCAS accurately convert official transcript grades to a standardized grading system for the benefit of participating medical schools. Please see theand for help updating your institutions grading information.
AMCAS accepts official PDF eTranscripts from approved senders.
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 as well as with institutions that are approved 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. If your institution is set up to transmit PDF transcripts directly, please review the .
AMCAS does not accept transcript data at this time. If you are equipped to send complete transcript data but are unable to send PDF eTranscripts, please continue to check in with AMCAS; a project to accept transcript data is currently under consideration. Alternatively, send an email to if you would like to be notified of how this project progresses.
If your institution is eligible to send eTranscripts, please contact to transition your submission process from paper transcripts to eTranscripts.
Please do not ask your registrar to send your transcripts to. Only AMCAS-approved senders can submit PDF eTranscripts to AMCAS by means of a secure file transfer (SFTP). AMCAS will not accept PDF eTranscripts by email or any other way.
If your college or university has not requested that you provide a Transcript ID, they are not yet an approved sender. Requesting an electronic transcript from a school that is not yet 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.
