Instructions > Colleges and Universities Attended

List ALL undergraduate, graduate, and post-BS/BA undergraduate institutions you have attended or plan to attend.

Enter all colleges and universities you attended EVEN IF THE COURSES ARE NOT REQUIRED FOR ADMISSION OR TRANSFERRED TO ANOTHER INSTITUTION. Include non-degree programs (e.g., summer school) and foreign institutions attended. Enter each institution only once, regardless of the number of degrees or gaps in the dates of attendance.

OptomCAS requires a separate official transcript from every U.S. and Canadian institution attended.

Foreign applicants are required to send a Foreign Evaluation to OptomCAS to be sent to your designated programs. Refer to the Frequently Asked Questions for a list of suggested services.

Deadline requirements are determined by individual programs. It is always prudent to send OptomCAS all of your transcripts as early as possible and certainly no less than 5–6 weeks before your first deadline. OptomCAS does not enforce transcript deadlines and will forward your completed file to your designated program(s) even if your transcript arrives late.

Please send all transcripts to:
