Applicants must meet with his/her JFD to arrange a sealed official transcript, accompanied by a JAMP Transcript Request Form, to be submitted. Only one transcript is required from every regionally accredited US, US Territorial or Canadian college attended. Do not have any transcripts delivered to JAMP until you have completed the [Colleges Attended] section of your application.
Official transcripts will be necessary for all undergraduate coursework. Transcripts must be submitted from each school attended even if:
- Coursework appears as transfer credit on another school’s transcript
- Coursework does not count toward a degree
- Coursework was taken while attending high school
While JAMP will accept transcripts that are not attached to a JAMP Transcript Request Form, JAMP is not responsible for transcripts that cannot be matched to your application due to the absence of a JAMP Transcript Request Form. You are strongly encouraged to utilize these forms.
Photocopies or faxed copies are NOT accepted.
JAMP recommends that you obtain a personal copy of each transcript for your records to help you properly complete the [College Coursework] section of your application.
It is your responsibility to verify and ensure that JAMP has received all of your transcripts. Check the status of your transcripts regularly by logging into your application and viewing the [Application Status] page.
Study Abroad Transcripts
If you participated in a Study Abroad program under the sponsorship of a US or Canadian institution and the international coursework appears on the US/Canadian transcript as regular itemized credit, only list the US or Canadian institution on your JAMP application. DO NOT list the international (foreign) institution. Arrange for only the US or Canadian transcript to be sent by your JFD to JAMP. JAMP processes official study-abroad coursework in the same manner as US and Canadian coursework.
* NOTE: Transcripts sent to JAMP remain the property of JAMP. Transcripts are not forwarded to the medical schools. The transcripts are used by JAMP to validate coursework listed on the application. If accepted to medical school, applicants will be required to send transcripts to the accepting school before matriculation.
An applicant is required to submit TWO letters of evaluation.
These letters must be from the following individuals:
- JAMP Faculty Director (Required)
- University Faculty
(Letters of evaluation from a source other than indicated above must be approved by your JAMP Faculty Director)
Submitting Individual Letters of Evaluation
Evaluators should know an applicant well enough to evaluate him/her both academically and personally. It is recommended that your evaluators be current/former professors that can speak to your academic ability in the sciences.
Be sure your full name and JAMP ID number is on the JAMP Evaluation Form. Individual evaluation letters should be accompanied by the JAMP Evaluation Form (with the waiver signature line completed) if you are waiving your right of access to the evaluation letter. If JAMP receives an evaluation letter without the JAMP Evaluation Form, it is assumed that the applicant has not waived his/her right of access to the letter.
Evaluators must return the evaluation form and letter to your JFD. Be sure you include your JFD's contact information on the evaluation form. You must be sure the evaluator knows that the form and letter must be returned to your JFD to allow enough time to submit prior to the deadline.
The JAMP Council prefer to receive only the required evaluation letters. Additional letters are not encouraged.
Validation of Colleges and Coursework
The information submitted by the applicant in the [College Coursework] section is compared to the official transcripts for all applicants.
This ensures that all coursework is listed in the [College Coursework] section and that each course is properly classified by JAMP standards.
NOTE: Updated transcripts must be submitted to JAMP after each semester/quarter that coursework is completed between time of application and expected matriculation into medical school.
