Transcript Verification

What is it?

Beginning with VMCAS 2014 (opening June, 2013), VMCAS will perform Transcript Verification on all submitted applications.   VMCAS will match 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 (see “Required Documents” below), 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 by September 1st, you will greatly improve your chance of having your application verified by the October 2nd deadline. Please note, the September 1st date is NOT a deadline, simply a recommended submission date. The DEADLINE for VMCAS 2014 is October 2nd, 2013 at 1:00pm Eastern Time.

What does this REALLY Mean?

It means that recommends that you plan on submitting your application, and have all your evaluations and transcripts into VMCAS by SEPTEMBER 1st, 2013 in order to allow time for your application to move through verification. Again, this is only a RECOMMENDED submission date, not a deadline!

Required Documents:

In order for your application to qualify for verification, the following items are required to be received by VMCAS before we will begin verifying your application:

·          Submitted VMCAS web-application

·          At least one (1) submitted letter of reference (e-LOR)

·          VMCAS application payment in full

·          ALL your official transcripts received by VMCAS

           Send Transcripts to:

                         VMCAS – Transcripts

                         P.O. Box 9126

                         Watertown, MA 02471


Once all four 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!!
