The AAMC is experiencing severe delays in processing any paper transcripts due to COVID. Because most staff are still working from home, their PO Box has most likely gone untouched. There's still been no official communication on details of just how delayed these transcripts will be- and this could tag weeks onto getting your application processed. However, the AAMC is now accepting transcripts to be emailed to them from universities who are non-approved senders. Here's how to do it:

1. Contact your university's registrar office and ask them to email ([email protected]) for instructions on sending an official electronic transcript (see link above)

2. The AAMC will provide your registrar's office with a unique AAMC email address for you to send your transcript order to (through NCS, Parchment, etc)

3. Order your transcript again using the email they provided (don't forget your transcript order form with your AMCAS ID / signature)

Hope this helps anyone who might be stressing over it. Again, the AAMC hasn't been transparent on just how long this delay will be but sending it this way should speed up your application's processing either way.
