    Hey guys,

    This might be a dumb question but for the life of me I cannot find which place (website/link?) to send my transcript from my university for it to get accepted and verified by the AMCAS. P.S. I'm supposed to wait until this semester's grades are finalized, correct?

    (I'm a 3rd year/Junior)


    Any info would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks.

    On your AMCAS application there's a "Schools Attended" button at the top. Click on that, then go to the link that says "Transcripts". Assuming everything else needed is filled out (it will explain exactly what you need to do if it isn't) then it'll provide you with a form to print out and mail to your school's registrar's office. They'll handle it from there.

    As for the waiting until grades are finalized, that sounds about right to me.

    Hmmm I saw that and thought there would be a better way other than snail mail?! So really, we do have to do everything the old fashioned way, still?

    Regards,

    If you're school is certified, they can send an eTranscript to AMCAS, but only if they are certified though. OTherwise it's snail mail (which doesn't really take that long. I got mine marked as received after like 4 days of sending it.
