Official transcripts sent to PostBacCAS or AACOMAS are provided to Bluefield University/VCOM when an applicant applies. These transcripts may be accepted if all coursework the student has taken at that institution is completed as of application submission and confirmed on the transcript. Bluefield University/VCOM will verify that a transcript has been received for every institution listed on the application, that at least one baccalaureate degree has been awarded, and that all other degrees reported on the PostBacCAS or AACOMAS application are documented. If there is a question as to the authenticity of a transcript, an official transcript from the institution in question will be required to be sent directly to VCOM.
Any school the applicant is attending or will attend after application submission will require an official transcript to be sent directly from that institution to the Master of Arts program office. In this case, the transcripts sent to PostBacCAS or AACOMAS will NOT be accepted.
In the event that Bluefield University/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 Master of Arts in Biomedical Sciences Program Office. Be sure to have the transcript addressed correctly. Unofficial transcripts or transcripts hand-carried by the student (even if in a sealed envelope) are not acceptable. Failure to submit official transcripts by deadlines provided (or to obtain authorized approval of an extension) may result in the offer of admission to Bluefield University/VCOM being rescinded and forfeiture of your tuition deposit.
If required, transcripts should be sent no later than July 1st, for online MABS students, and July 20th, for on-campus MABS students. Mail them directly to:
