During the 2024 application cycle, the AMCAS program is accepting both paper and electronic transcripts. Electronic transcripts must be transmitted through our approved vendors, National Student Clearinghouse and Parchment, or sent via secure email from approved school registrars. Transcripts will not be accepted via fax. Processing timelines vary based on the mode of transmission to the AMCAS program.
Once transcripts are received by the AMCAS program, it can take up to 15 business days to process electronically submitted transcripts. Mailed transcripts can take up to 25 business days to process from the date sent.
