For students participating in the Committee Process, you are required to submit your official transcripts from all colleges or universities attended (including UMD). You may have them sent by mail to the HPAO (if using Testudo for your UMD transcript, select "Other" from the drop-down menu for Destination. In the address fields, type in 1210 H. J. Patterson Hall, College Park, MD 20742) or you may drop them off in person. Please note that these transcripts are used for internal purposes only and will not be forwarded to application services or schools.
For AMCAS and all other services: The Office of the Registrar will send your transcripts at your request to these services (see below for detailed instructions). Those of you enrolled in spring courses should wait until after your spring grades are posted to request that your transcript be sent. However, you should not wait for grades from Summer Sessions as this will put you late in the application process. AMCAS will start accepting official transcripts on May 1 and not before.
Transcript problems are the most common cause of delay in your application, so listen up. In order to assure that your transcripts are processed smoothly, you must use the Transcript Release Forms (TRF) that is available to be printed out from the electronic application of each service (AMCAS, AADSAS, AACOMAS and OPTOMCAS each have a version of this form). Submit the transcript request form to the Registrar's Office and any other post-secondary school that you attended from which you will be required to submit a transcript (refer to the HELP function on the actual application). In most cases, the TRF will print with the address of the Registrar's Office at the specific school, so you don't have to look up the address. Remember, a transcript is only "official" if it is sent directly from the Office of the Registrar. It cannot come from you (even in a sealed envelope).
