Transcript Verification

What is it?

All VMCAS applications are placed into Transcript Verification before releasing data to the veterinary schools.  VMCAS matches your coursework section line by line against your official transcript to ensure you have correctly entered your courses.

How Does it Work?

Once VMCAS receives *all* your required documentation, VMCAS will then place your application in the verification queue. Verification can take up to four (4) weeks for us to complete your verification. By submitting all of your transcripts BEFORE the deadline (September 15, 2016), you will greatly improve your chance of having your application verified early with time to make corrections if needed. Please note, that September 15th, 12 Midnight Eastern Time  IS THE VMCAS 2017 deadline!

Getting S.E.T. for Verification:

VMCAS recommends that you get S.E.T. for verification by making sure VMCAS receives the following data from you by BEFORE the September 15th, 2016 deadline:

S:  E-Submit your VMCAS application & application fee

E:  Have all of your three (3) required electronic letters of recommendation received by VMCAS

T:  Make sure VMCAS has ALL of your required transcripts

·       Send Transcripts to :

                         VMCAS – Transcripts

                         P.O. Box 9126

                         Watertown, MA 02471


Once all of the above requirements are met, VMCAS will place your application into the verification queue. 

REMEMBER: Early completion of your application will get your completed application to your designated schools sooner!!
