2022 AMCAS® Updates and FAQs

Attention: Transcripts sent via Parchment

AMCAS is aware of an intermittent transmission issue with Parchment that is impacting the receipt of some transcripts. Parchment has identified that some transcripts they send to AMCAS are missing the data needed for a transcript to be automatically applied to an application. They are working towards a resolution, but they do not yet have a timeline for the fix. If you were notified by Parchment that your transcript was received and downloaded by AMCAS prior to the current transcript processing date listed on our website, please submit a message using the AMCAS Contact Us form and select "Parchment Inquiry" in the drop-down as the reason for contacting AMCAS.

If you were notified by Parchment that your transcript was received and downloaded after the date AMCAS is currently processing, please wait to contact us until the processing date listed has passed when you submitted your transcript. You will receive an email from AMCAS when your transcript has been marked as “Received.”

2022 Cycle Update

The AAMC has been working closely with the medical school admissions and pre-health advisor communities to consider the impacts on applicants due to coronavirus (COVID-19). Medical schools are aware of the many challenges applicants are facing and understand the need to be flexible in their admissions approach during this application cycle. Please review the Medical School Admission Requirements (MSAR) and Participating Medical Schools and Deadlines for updates provided by medical schools. We encourage you to check directly with the medical schools where you are applying for their most current information.

Transcripts

AMCAS only accepts official transcripts mailed by your registrar or electronically submitted by our approved vendors, National Student Clearinghouse and Parchment. Transcripts will not be accepted via email or fax. Please review transcript processing timelines and the transcript FAQs below for more information.

Application Verification

The verification process may take six to eight weeks once your application reaches “Ready for Review.” Your application is “Ready for Review” once your applications is submitted and all required transcripts have been processed. We recommend checking transcript processing timelines and the transcript processing tool for the status of your transcript, as well as our website, for updates on application processing timing.
