    Check with the schools where you did your undergrad. Several of mine had the option for ordering and paying for transcripts online. I think transcripts must be mailed in order to be considered "official" so unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a way to speed up that process.
    Good luck.
    But that CAS form has to be attached to the transcripts, correct? Which would mean I fill it out and mail it to all 7 (yes, 7!) schools and they will send that form along with my transcripts to CAS, correct? I just want to make sure I don't mess this up. Thank you for replying! I have always ordered transcripts online but if they need this form with it I think that's not possible. How did you do it?

    I don't think you HAVE to attach the CAS form, it's just there preprinted in case you want to. I didn't use the form and just filled out online requests through my schools and listed the nursing CAS address and my CAS number on the online school-specific request.
    I feel your pain - I had five different transcripts to send!

    okay, thanks. I noticed there are bar codes on the CAS form. Did yours have that also? If I can do this electronically it will greatly speed things up. Thank you so much for your reply! If you were able to do it this way without a problem I'm sure it's fine.

    I don't know for sure as i don't recall paying much attention to those forms at the time. I went back and read the CAS FAQ and it sounds like attaching the request form to the transcripts they mail in may possibly speed up the processing time once CAS receives them, but that is speculation on my part.
    I suggest you go read the FAQ and decide for yourself. I did not send the request form in with my transcripts, but I requested mine well ahead of the deadline since CAS themselves say to "allow 5-6 weeks" ahead of deadlines for processing time. It was kind of a nerve wracking process.
    Sorry I'm not more help. Good luck!!!

    How long ago did you apply? I guess I can always call Monday and try to get the straight scoop. Thank you! Transcripts take long enough electronically. Just imagine the mailing to and fro!

    Sometime in September, I think? Before the deadline (October 1?) for spring admission.

    Does anyone know if you apply for say, summer and they are full do they automaticlly bump you to the next session? I am debating summer vs. fall. Time is short for summer deadline. I'm trying to navigate the website but some answers I'm not finding. Is the online calendar the same as the traditional academic calendar? Is summer May-Aug? Thanks guys....so many questions so little time!

    Your application is not automatically reviewed for the next semester. If you aren't accepted for summer, you have to fill out another supplemental application for fall (as far as I can tell). See the "Rollover" application info on http://www.usouthal.edu/nursing/msnapply.html

    Based on my admission packet, I think the online courses follow the same academic schedule as the rest of the university. Summer term would then appear to be May 28 - July 26

    So basically reapply with the same fee? Thanks for the calendar info!
