Transcript Verification

What is it?

VMCAS now performs Transcript Verification on all submitted applications.  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 (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 2nd, 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 2015 is October 2nd, 2014 at 1:00pm Eastern Time.

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 September 2nd, 2014:

S:  E-Submit your VMCAS application & application fee

E:  Have one (1) 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!!
