Request and Submit Official Transcripts to AADSAS
Official transcripts from each institution where you have taken courses must be submitted to AADSAS. After you create an account in AADSAS, print one transcript matching form for each institution where you have taken a course. Send this form to the registrar office at the specific institution/s. The institution will send the transcripts directly to AADSAS. Most schools will allow you to request official transcripts online, while you may need to speak to the school’s registrar office at others. The institutions will send the transcripts directly to the schools. The Pre-Health Office does not process transcript requests. UM transcripts are processed by a third party company called Credentials Solutions 847-716-3005. All requests must be made through Canelink. Students will be prompted each step of the way during the ordering process. Students requesting to have their transcripts sent via USPS mail, at the end of the order the system will automatically generate a pre-populated Fax Note which will need to be faxed directly to Credentials for processing.

If you choose to have individual letter submitted to AADSAS (either instead of a committee or cover letter packet, or in addition to a committee or cover letter packet), you must ask each individual evaluator to submit his/her letter directly to AADSAS.

Note on Texas Dental Schools: If you are applying to a dental school in Texas, you must apply through the Texas Medical and Dental Schools Application Service (TMDSAS), not AADSAS. Click here for TMDSAS. You will need to complete the [Colleges Attended] section of the TMDSAS application. Then, in the [Letters of Evaluation] section, indicate that a packet is being submitted and enter University of Miami. You must answer “Yes” to the following question in the [Colleges Attended Questions] section: “Would you like to release your information to the health professions advisor at any school(s)?” and indicate the school which will be uploading your committee or cover letter packet. Then provide the Pre-Health Office with a copy of your submitted TMDSAS application (a pdf document emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org will suffice) and request that the Office submit your committee or cover letter packet to the TMDSAS portal. The Pre-Health Office will place you in queue and then upload your committee or cover letter packet to the TMDSAS Evaluator Portal.
