    I used the electronic transcript delivery service Parchment to send my seventh semester transcript to USMA. It was received and downloaded on February 4th but has not shown up in my portal yet. In my experience with Parchment, it takes a couple of weeks for the school to acknowledge the receipt even thought they have received it according to the service.
    As of now, my file is "incomplete" because of the missing transcript. As such, USMA can't take action on it. Seeing hundreds of people receive appointments that I know I am qualified for but having my transcript in portal limbo makes me frustrated and nervous.
    Am I just worrying too much? What course of action do you suggest that I take? Thank you.

    Go to your school get an official copy of your transcript and send it Fed Ex then you know they have it.
    Just a suggestion.

    I just sent mine in today and it was sent in electronically. From what I know, this is the quickest method to get a transcript to the academy. It should show up on your portal in within a week or so.

    We had school email a signed copy of transcript directly from school to RC. Took less than a week to show up on portal.

    tle - Has your portal reflected the 7th semester transcript yet? From you post it looks like you sent it Saturday (2/7). Can you clarify by what "electronic " means you used? Thanks.

    How do you send it electronically? My sons counselor said she was not able to and mailed it, but it is not showing yet. There is no email/ contact card next to the transcript section on sons portal?

    What address would she email it to?

    Some people have...
    Identified their regional command http://www.usma.edu/admissions/sitepages/contact.aspx and then sent them an email with a signed/scanned transcript (MUST BE SIGNED)
    or
    Used the online service Parchment (most schools and universities use this program)
    Both of these methods have been successful.


    My school uses Parchment and can see that USMA downloaded the transcript but my portal has not updated yet (now 8 days).

    Best of luck

    You know what? I realized the transaction never went through, haha! I will actually be sending it in tonight instead and I will let you know! By electronically, I'm referring to Parchment! If you order a transcript it will send it to WP electronically by default. It's a lot faster than snail mail. Hope this helped! I'll update you once my portal updates.

    Do you have to write your candidate number on your transcript if you mailed them? I didn't..
