Transcripts: AMCAS works with Clearinghouse for the submission of transcripts. If an applicant is requesting a transcript from a school using Clearinghouse and the school is an approved eTranscript sender (as CSUF is), they will be prompted to enter their Transcript ID Number into the request with Clearinghouse and do not need a Transcript Request

AACOMAS has a new application for the 2016 cycle. Applicants might notice that the new application has no place to indicate a committee packet is being submitted. AACOMAS has stated that the committee packet counts as one letter. Within the application there is a section called "supporting information", you will select that and choose the "evaluations" option. The applicant will then select "create an evaluation" and enter the advisors name (Dr. Christina Goode). This sends a request to our office stating that the applicant is requesting a letter from Dr. Goode. Even though it seems the applicant is only requesting one letter, our office uploads the committee packet. During the process of each application, AACOMAS and professional schools will receive all letters in the committee packet.
You can now update your coursework section on AACOMAS. Newly completed or planned courses can be updated using a system called Academic Update. AACOMAS Academic Update will be available during three time periods throughout the application cycle: September 1 - October 15, 2015 January 1 - February 15, 2016 March 15 - April 15, 2016 The Academic Update feature will not be enabled in your application until your application has been verified. You cannot make any updates to your coursework section until your application is in the "Verified" status.
Please remember, for AACOMAS, you should print and send us a copy of the application after it is submitted.
Intent to Apply Updates
Please remember to send in your completed List of Schools form, which is located on our website.
A copy of your application to each Centralized Application system is also due to the HPAO before the Committee Packet can be uploaded.
