Note that the COVID-19 Transcript Hardships process will no longer be available starting on August 4, 2020. You must send official transcripts for all institutions. See Sending Official Transcripts to VMCAS for more information.
The Documents section should only be used by applicants who requested a COVID-19 transcript hardship exception. If you need this exception, you must complete the COVID-19 Transcript Hardships section before uploading any documents. If you can obtain your official transcripts, you are not eligible for this exception and should not upload any documents on this page as it may delay the processing of your application.
If you qualify for the exception, follow the steps below to upload your unofficial transcript(s). You must submit your application first before your unofficial transcripts are processed. Note that once your exception is processed, any unofficial transcripts you uploaded will no longer appear on this page. Instead, the transcript will be marked as Arrived in the Check Status section of the application.
