Forwarding Letters to AMCAS

AMCAS will accept letters from the Letter Service by a web upload or by mail. Letters sent electronically are matched to an applicant's AMCAS application within one business day. Letters sent through the mail can take up to 15 business days from the date of receipt to be matched to the appropriate application.

Whether we upload or mail your letters, your AMCAS Matching Form(s) must be received and posted to your account prior to your request. Please make sure to select both your letter(s) and the AMCAS matching form(s) in your request, otherwise your request will be cancelled.

Procedure to Upload Letters to AMCAS (Express or Rush Service):

We do not need "a separate invitation” for uploading letters to AMCAS. Be sure that your AMCAS Matching Forms appear in your list of available letters and you have enough funds in your account to pay for this request.

After you login to your account and select Make Request, choose the Website Uploading Service option. Whether you are sending a "Letter Packet" or "Individual Letter(s)", make sure to select all your letter(s) and all the AMCAS matching form(s) in the same request so you only pay one fee. Complete the required address fields using the general PO Box address (see below) for AMCAS.
