• If you submit your application before your summer or fall 2017 grades are available, enter your updated courses online during the Academic Update and arrange for your updated transcript to be sent to PTCAS as soon as it is available. Submit your updated courses as soon as you have an unofficial grade report from the institution and do not wait for the registrar to release your official transcript. 

    You can only update your coursework once during the Academic Update and only after your initial application and coursework is verified by PTCAS.

    Important Academic Update Dates

    December 12, 2017 – The Academic Update opens. New courses will not be verified until the Academic Update window is open and your initial file is verified.    

    January 15, 2018 – Priority deadline to submit your updated courses and transcripts to PTCAS. PTCAS will continue to accept updated transcripts after the priority deadline date through February 15.

    February 15, 2018 – The Academic Update closes. You cannot edit your courses after this date. PTCAS will no longer accept Academic Update transcripts. 

    How to Submit Your Updates

    If you do not complete this process, PTCAS will be unable to process your coursework changes, and your programs will not receive your updated GPAs.

    • Once your application status is “verified,” navigate to the “Transcript Entry” section. 
    • Edit any planned/in-progress terms that are now completed by unchecking the “planned/in progress” box for the term. Then, enter your grades and credits. All courses in the term must be complete before you switch the term’s status to “complete.”
    • Enter any new planned or in-progress terms. Once you are finished adding all new courses, submit your Academic Update for verification. Do not submit until all course edits are done.
    • Complete the Transcript Review again.
    • To submit updates back to verification, click the “Submit My Updates” button. 
    • Once you have clicked the “Submit My Updates” button, navigate to your application dashboard. On the top of your page you should see an “Update my Application” button. Click on this button to send any application updates to your programs.
    • As soon as you click on the “Update my Application” button, your information is immediately updated on the application for all of your selected programs.
