Official transcripts for ALL college-level coursework (undergraduate, graduate and continuing education) must be sent directly to VMCAS. This includes Iowa State University students and alumni. Please send transcripts to:
VMCAS Transcript Processing Center
P.O. Box 9126
Watertown, MA 02471
Official transcripts from ALL postsecondary institutions you have attended are required. This is necessary even though credits may show up as transfer credits on another institution's transcript, you took only one course at the institution, or you took the college credits during high school.
IMPORTANT - If you are reapplying, please make sure you send UPDATED transcripts to VMCAS if you have taken any coursework between your last application and the current application. We cannot consider your applicaton without these.
If you are taking Summer 2019 courses and want these grades included in the initial academic evaluation, the transcripts must be sent to VMCAS by September 17, 2019.
If credits have been taken at a foreign (non-U.S.) institution, the applicant must follow the VMCAS instructions for foreign transcripts. Since this may take some time, applicants are urged to start this process shortly after the VMCAS application opens.
The deadline for sending all transcripts to VMCAS is September 17, 2019.
Fall 2019 (due postmarked January 20, 2020) and Spring 2020 (due postmarked July 1, 2020) official transcripts need to be sent directly to Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine.
