Verification Requirements

The transcript and coursework entry selections you make determine the level of verification performed by the CAS staff. Verification options include:

  • Official Transcripts and Full Coursework Entry with FULL Verification
  • Official Transcripts and Prerequisite Coursework Entry Only with LIGHT Verification
  • Official Transcripts and No Coursework Entry with LIGHT Verification
  • Unofficial Transcripts and Prerequisite Coursework Entry Only with NO Verification
  • Unofficial Transcripts and No Coursework Entry with NO Verification
  • No Transcripts and No Coursework Entry with NO Verification

The following information provides additional context:

  • Official Transcripts: 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 to designated school users in WebAdMIT as a high-resolution PDF. CAS's also accept e-transcripts from Parchment and Credential Solutions.
  • Unofficial Transcripts: Applicants can upload a copy of their unofficial transcript(s) directly in the Academic History section the application. These transcripts are provided to designated school users in WebAdMIT as a high-resolution PDF. Note that unofficial transcript(s) are not verified.
  • No Transcripts: Applicants are not required to have transcripts sent directly to the CAS (instead, you can process transcripts directly at your institution), and will not be available in WebAdMIT.
  • Full Coursework Entry with FULL Verification: Applicants will enter all the coursework they have completed at any college or university attended in order to submit their application. The CAS will verify this data for accuracy and calculate several GPAs which will be available in WebAdMIT, including GPA by year, GPA by subject, and/or GPA by school.
  • Pre-requisite Coursework Entry with LIGHT Verification: Applicants will only enter specific courses they have completed to match your pre-requisite course requirements. 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.
  • No Coursework Entry with LIGHT Verification: Applicants will not enter any coursework data and only Per Transcript GPAs and an Overall GPA are provided to you in WebAdMIT. Note that if any data point is missing from the transcript, then GPAs may not be available.
  • No Coursework Entry with No Verification: Applicants will not enter any coursework data and no GPAs are provided to you in WebAdMIT.

The following applications statuses correspond to the verification options listed above. 

Transcripts and Coursework Settings Type of GPA Provided Applicant's Final Application Status
Official Transcripts + Full Coursework All GPAs (Course subject, By School, etc.) Verified (full verification)
Official Transcripts + Prerequisites Only Light Verification (Per Transcript and Overall GPA only) Verified (light verification)
Official Transcripts + No Coursework Light Verification (Per Transcript and Overall GPA only) Verified (light verification)
Unofficial Transcripts + Prerequisites Only No GPAs provided Complete (no verification)
Unofficial Transcripts + No Coursework No GPAs provided Complete (no verification)
No Transcripts + No Coursework No GPAs provided Complete (no verification)
* Light verification means only limited GPA calculations will show and if any data point from the transcript is missing, GPAs may not be available.

Note: When selecting Official Transcripts and Full Coursework Entry with FULL Verification, users can generate program-specific local and prerequisite GPA calculations in addition to the provided GPAs. Click here for more information.
