Official transcripts for ALL college-level coursework (undergraduate, graduate and continuing education) must be sent directly to VMCAS. This includes courses you took during high school, courses that show up as transfer credits on another transcript and if you only took 1 course at the school. If an institution's name shows on another transcript, a transcript directly from that institution is required. Iowa State University students and alumni must also send their transcripts to VMCAS. Please send transcripts to:
