Transcript Processing

During the 2023 application cycle, AMCAS 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. AMCAS will not accept transcripts via fax. 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 electronically submitted 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,” send us a message.
