How do I setup an account?

If you are a first time user of Parchment Exchange, you will need to set up an account. The following information will be required to ensure proper student matching:

Electronic Delivery

While electronic transcripts are widely accepted, confirm with your recipients that they will accept this format before ordering. An electronic (secure, certified PDF) transcript is “official” in its electronic form as long as it is not altered. Each time the file is opened, it will be certified electronically (internet connection required) to ensure that it has not been altered. A printed copy of a PDF transcript is not official.

 Can an attachment be sent with an official paper transcript?

Yes, the attachment will be enclosed in the same envelope with the transcript and must have the following characteristics:

  1. Acceptable file formats are: PDF, JPEG, TIFF, PNG, TXT, DOC AND DOCX
  2. Files cannot exceed 300kb
  3. Maximum of 3 pages are allowed

A paper transcript is “official” only as long as it remains in its sealed envelope. Do not open the sealed envelope if you are forwarding the document to another party (an institution, employer or other person). Open the envelope only if you have ordered the transcript for personal use.

Can my transcript be sent to the American Medical College Application Service?

Yes, you are now able to request your transcript be sent to AMCAS using Parchment. Simply enter AMCAS in the Institution Name section and click search. You must have your AAMC ID and AAMC Transcript ID available when you place your order. Fee applies.
