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, 2020), you will greatly improve your chance of having your application verified early with time to make corrections if needed. Please note, that September 15, 2020, 11:59PM Eastern Time IS THE VMCAS 2021 deadline!
Send Official Transcripts Directly From Your Institution’s Registrar’s Office To :
VMCAS – Transcripts Processing Center
P.O. Box 9126

**VMCAS does NOT accept transcripts postmarked AFTER the deadline.
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!!
