Dental schools require you to provide a transcript from every school you have attended, even if the credit was transferred into UGA. The Pre-Health Advising Office cannot order or receive your transcripts.
Forgetting to submit your transcripts can delay the processing of your application. Be sure your Spring UGA grades are posted before you send your transcript. Requesting unofficial copies of each of your transcripts for yourself will help you accurately fill in the coursework section on applications.
How to request transcript for AADSAS from UGA Registrar's Office
To request a transcript from UGA Registrar's Office, please follow the instructions at reg.uga.edu/transcripts. Transcripts are requested electronically. Athena -> Student Records -> Request Official Transcript -> This will take you to Parchment.
Search for "AADSAS." Select the only result. You will have a spot on the request page to upload the request form. When you hit “continue,” you will be prompted to enter your AADSAS Transcript Request Form Barcode. eTranscripts accepted and encouraged.
In the AADSAS appication, you should be able to see when your transcripts have arrived on the My Application Status page. The status bar will also show when the application processing begins, when transcript verification is complete, and when the application information is available to dental schools. Transcript verification means that AADSAS will review your computed GPAs and classes before submitting your application to dental schools. If you think it has been too long since you sent your transcripts and you have checked the My Application Status page, you may want to check by calling the AADSAS help line. However, you may expect the verification process to be time consuming as processing time usually takes 3-4 weeks.
