Verification Requirements

The transcript and coursework entry selections you make determine the level of verification performed by the CAS staff. Note that some CASs do not offer verification, regardless of types of transcripts and coursework. To confirm if your CAS offers verification, contact your Account Manager.

Verification options can include:

  • Official Transcripts Sent to CAS and Full Coursework Entry with full verification*
  • Official Transcripts Sent to CAS and Prerequisite Coursework Entry Only with light verification*
  • Official Transcripts Sent to CAS and No Coursework Entry with light verification*
  • Applicant Uploaded Unofficial Transcripts and Prerequisite Coursework Entry Only with no verification
  • Applicant Uploaded Unofficial Transcripts and No Coursework Entry with no verification
  • Custom Transcript Sending Instructions and No Coursework Entry with no verification
  • No Transcripts and No Coursework Entry with no verification

*If your CAS does not offer verification, then coursework is not verified and GPAs are not provided, regardless of your selections.

The following information provides additional context:

  • Official Transcripts Sent to CAS: applicants are required to have their official transcripts mailed directly to the CAS by the issuing institution’s registrar’s office. Once received, the CAS’s operations team validates each transcript for authenticity. Transcripts are provided in WebAdMIT as a high-resolution PDF. CASs also accept e-transcripts from Credential Solutions, National Student Clearinghouse, and Parchment.
  • Applicant Uploaded Unofficial Transcripts: applicants can upload a copy of their unofficial transcript(s) directly in the Academic History section the application. These transcripts are provided in WebAdMIT as a high-resolution PDF. Note that unofficial transcript(s) are not verified.

These courses are available in a “read-only” format in WebAdMIT and are not verified. Additionally, only Per Transcript and Overall GPAs are provided to you in WebAdMIT. Note that if any data point is missing from the transcript, then GPAs may not be available.
