Complete this section of the application first! List every college and university you have attended or plan to attend through summer 2018, including associate, undergraduate, postbaccalaureate, graduate, and professional degree institutions. You must enter all colleges and universities attended, regardless of whether the courses are required for admission or transferred to another institution. Also enter international institutions, nondegree programs, community colleges, and dual-enrollment programs during high school in which college credit was earned. Enter each institution once, regardless of gaps in attendance or number of degrees. Duplicate entries may delay the processing of your application.
You must arrange
for PTCAS to receive an official transcript from every college and university you
attended in the United States and Canada (if in English). Your file will
not be verified until all official transcripts are received. Arrange for only 1
transcript to be sent for each institution attended, regardless of the number
of programs you select in PTCAS. Arrange for your official
transcripts to be sent to:
PTCAS Transcript Department
PO Box 9112
Watertown, MA 02471
Follow instructions to print a
PTCAS Transcript Matching Form for every college attended in the United States
and Canada. Official transcripts that arrive at PTCAS without
the form enclosed may take longer to process.
PTCAS accepts official electronic transcripts through Credentials Solutions. To determine if your college or university participates in this service, please check the Credential Solutions directory.
Review the Academic Update section to learn how to submit
updated 2017 summer and fall transcripts to PTCAS.
Arrange for your winter, spring, and summer term 2018 transcripts to be sent directly to your selected programs, as specifically required by each program. Do not send them to PTCAS.
If grades for multiple branches or campuses of an institution appear on 1 transcript, enter all in the “Institutions Attended” section. It is not necessary to send a Transcript Matching Form for each campus.
It is your responsibility to monitor the status of your transcripts at PTCAS throughout the application process. PTCAS will not notify you regarding missing transcripts. If it has been longer than 10 business days and your transcript has not been posted, the materials must be resubmitted. You may view the status of your transcripts at any time after submission by referring to the “Check Status” tab of the application home page. PTCAS will also send email notifications every time a transcript is posted to your application. PTCAS is not responsible for materials lost in the mail or for delays caused by institutional registrars’ offices. Express or certified mail does not guarantee expedient processing, and sending transcripts express or certified mail does not guarantee receipt by PTCAS.
If you accept an offer of admission to a PT degree program, you may be required to submit a second set of official transcripts from every institution you have attended directly to the PT program, prior to matriculation. PTCAS cannot forward transcripts to a PT program to fulfill this institutional requirement.

PTCAS does not waive transcript requirements due to unpaid fees from the applicant to a college or university. Applicants who are unable to obtain an official transcript from an institution due to extenuating circumstances, such as a closed institution, must submit a signed letter of explanation on official letterhead from the appropriate institution or state department of education. PTCAS will evaluate transcript waiver requests on a case-by-case basis.
PTCAS will investigate and report applicants suspected of submitting false or fraudulent information. If any misrepresentation in data is suspected by or reported to PTCAS, the applicant will be notified, and relevant information will be requested. If a misrepresentation in data is confirmed, PTCAS will notify the programs to which the applicant has applied. In addition, on a case-by-case basis, PTCAS reserves the right to notify all programs participating in the service.
