Entering Your Coursework

Take your time when completing the Course Work section of the application. Omitting coursework, grades, credits, or supplying incorrect grades may affect your AMCAS GPA and could delay the processing of your application, which could result in missed deadlines.

Keep a copy of your official transcript(s) next to you while you complete this section to help ensure that your information is complete and accurate.

When entering coursework, you must include information and corresponding grades for every course in which you have ever enrolled at any U.S., U.S. Territorial, or Canadian post-secondary institution, regardless of whether you earned credit. This includes, but is not limited to, withdrawals, repeats, failures, incompletes, and future coursework. Courses removed from your transcripts or GPA as a result of academic bankruptcy, forgiveness, or similar institutional policies must also be included.

  • Course Classification: Each course must be assigned a course classification based entirely on the primary content of the course. See the Course Classification Guide for assistance in classifying your coursework.
  • Foreign Coursework/Study Abroad: Applicants often have questions about entering foreign study experience into the AMCAS application. You should carefully consult the AMCAS Instruction Manual to determine how to do so.
  • AMCAS GPA: AMCAS will convert most standard undergraduate transcript grades to AMCAS grades based on conversion information provided by the institutions. The AMCAS GPA provides the medical schools with a standard way to compare each applicant's background. The BCPM GPA is comprised of Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics courses. All other coursework will be calculated in the AO (All Other) GPA.

Transcripts

AMCAS requires one official transcript from each U.S., U.S. Territorial, or Canadian post-secondary institution at which you have attempted coursework, regardless of whether credit was earned. To determine whether or not an official transcript is required for one of your undergraduate institutions, consult the AMCAS Instruction Manual.

Transcripts must be sent directly from the registrar’s office. AMCAS has difficulties matching applications to official transcripts that are not accompanied by the AMCAS Transcript Request Form, use this form to ensure that your transcript is matched to your application. Print the AMCAS Transcript Request Form from within your current application from the Main Menu.

Problems with transcripts are the number one cause of processing delays and missed application deadlines.

A transcript will be rejected and possibly returned by AMCAS under any of the following conditions:

  • The Registrar's seal and/or signature is missing.

  • The transcript is stamped "Issued to Student" or "Student Copy" etc.

  • The official transcript was received directly from the student.

  • The official transcript is for the wrong student, or the name on the transcript differs from that on this transcript request form.

  • The official transcript is illegible.

  • A PDF eTranscript was sent by an institution not approved to send AMCAS electronic transcripts.

Sending Transcripts to AMCAS

Paper Transcripts:

Paper transcripts should be mailed to AMCAS along with an AMCAS Transcript Request Form to help us match your transcript(s) to your application. This form is found within the application.

Mail paper transcripts to:

AMCAS, attn: Transcripts, AAMC Medical School Application Services,

P.O. Box 57326,

Washington, DC 20037

Electronic Transcripts:

If your college or university has not requested that you provide a Transcript ID, they are not yet an approved sender.

AMCAS only accepts PDF eTranscripts from approved senders, who may only submit transcripts to AMCAS by means of a secure file transfer (SFTP). AMCAS will not accept PDF eTranscripts by email or any other way.

At this time, most schools that have the ability to send eTranscripts are not yet AMCAS-approved senders. Requesting an electronic transcript from a school that is not yet approved will result in delays for your application, as you will have to submit another request to your registrar for a paper transcript.

Remember that AMCAS continues to accept official paper transcripts from all institutions.

If your college or university registrar is interested in learning more about PDF eTranscripts, they can visit our AMCAS for Registrars page.
