  2. September 15: Transcripts must be submitted by this date. Transcripts are to be submitted directly to VMCAS.

    Sending transcripts to UGA CVM will void said transcript and the applicant will be responsible for resubmitting to the proper location. Applicants are required to submit official transcripts from every institution of higher education attended by the applicant (including transient courses and joint enrollment courses taken during high school, even if the courses are listed as transfer credits on another transcript).

    Failure to submit transcripts from each institution you have attended will result in an incomplete application that cannot be considered for admission.

  3. Electronic letters of recommendation also must be submitted to VMCAS by this date.
  4. The required supplemental application is due (be sure to click on the SUBMIT button to send the application); You must submit a non-refundable $75 Supplemental Application fee.
