Transcript(s) to Document Transferred Credits

If you have transferred credits to the medical school that awarded or will award your medical degree, you must document these credits when you apply for examination, regardless of when the credits were earned. You must send to ECFMG a copy of an official transcript issued by the school or institution at which the course was taken. You must submit the copy of your transcript to ECFMG via the MyECFMG mobile app or via mail or courier service.

If you are mailing a copy of the transcript, the photocopy must be 216 mm x 279 mm (8½ in x 11 in). If the document is larger than 216 mm x 279 mm (8½ in x 11 in), you must send a reduced photocopy that is 216 mm x 279 mm (8½ in x 11 in).

You must submit the copy of the transcript in the original language. Documents that are not in English must be accompanied by an official English translation. ECFMG will not accept a copy of a transcript that is not in English without an official English translation. Likewise, ECFMG will not accept an English translation of a transcript without a copy of the original language document from which the English translation was prepared. See English Translations in Medical Education Credentials.

Do not submit professional evaluations of your transcript. ECFMG does not accept such evaluations in lieu of your transcript.

To submit the transcript to ECFMG, follow the instructions for additional documents in the exam application in ECFMG's IWA.

The name on your transcript(s) to document transferred credits should match exactly the name in your ECFMG record. If the name on your transcript does not match the name in your ECFMG record, you must submit documentation that verifies the name on your transcript is (or was) your name.
