VCOM College Catalog and Student Handbook

Official Transcripts Official transcripts sent to AACOMAS are provided to VCOM when an applicant applies. These transcript are accepted by VCOM if all coursework the applicant has taken at that institution is completed as of June 1 of the application year. VCOM will verify that a transcript has been received for every institution listed on the AACOMAS application, that at least one baccalaureate degree has been awarded, and that all other degrees reported on the AACOMAs application are documented. If there is a question about the authenticity of a transcript, an official transcript, sent directly to the VCOM campus from the institution in question, will be required. Any school the applicant is attending (or will attend) after June of the application year will require an official transcript be sent directly from that institution to the appropriate VCOM campus. In this case, the transcript sent to AACOMAS will not be accepted. In the event that VCOM does require a transcript directly from an institution, transcripts must be sent directly from the Registrar’s Office of the school(s) attended directly to the VCOM Registrar’s Office. Be sure to have the transcript addressed to the appropriate campus. Unofficial transcripts or transcripts hand carried by the applicant (even if in a sealed envelope) are not acceptable. Failure to submit official transcripts by the due date (or to obtain authorized approval of an extension) may result in the offer of admission to VCOM being rescinded and forfeiture of the tuition deposit. If required, transcripts should be sent to and questions addressed to the appropriate campus: Auburn Campus Office of the Registrar
