Hey everyone, I'm wondering how other are handling the submission of transcripts? I remember reading somewhere that the FAA wanted official transcripts. Are these being mailed in or are we just attaching copies of our unofficial transcripts on the application? Also, is everyone attaching documentation on the USAJOBS application or on the Aviator? Thanks!

No where in the application did it ask for transcripts, I'm going to assume they'll ask for them if you get picked to go to an interview.

2. TO QUALIFY BASED UPON EDUCATION: applicants must document a full 4-year course of study leading to a Bachelor's degree. Schools must be accredited by an accrediting institution recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. If qualifying based on education, applicants must submit a copy of the transcript which includes the name of the institution, quarter or semester hours earned and/or confer date.
OR
3. TO QUALIFY BASED UPON THE COMBINATION OF BOTH WORK EXPERIENCE AND EDUCATION: The applicant's total qualifying experience is converted to a percentage of the experience required then the applicant's education is converted to a percentage of the education required. The combined percentages must equal 100%. At the undergraduate level, successfully completed education that has not led to possession of a degree is credited based on its relationship to 120 semester hours or 180 quarter hours. For example, 30 semester hours or 45 quarter hours is comparable to 1 year of undergraduate education. For study at a business or technical school, 36 weeks of study (20+ classroom hours per week) is comparable to 1 academic year above high school.

The app states official/unofficial transcripts so you don't actually need the official ones for this step,once you get selected then you will need to give them official sealed transcripts

Does everyone have an electronic copy of their transcript? I only have a paper copy. Did you scan it? Vaughn College stated that they would forward my transcript after I paid a small fee, but should I put my trust in them?...

I wouldn't trust them with it. I'd get a copy, scan it, and submit it with your resume. That's what I did at least.

I copied and pasted the online transcripts to a WORD DOC. I guess scanning would work to. I was going to do that but my online school transcript does not allow for printing when I tried to it would chop it up.

I would really suggest scanning the copies you have. Copy and paste is not a good idea.

I submitted my application with a resume I created on their website and without a transcipt as I wasnt sure when I was going to get a copy of my transcript, but I received one today. Is there any way to go back and add it to the application that ive already submitted? Ive tried to update it but it never asked to upload documents.

Yea you can edit your application at anytime before the announcement ends. Just log on USAJOBS and add the paperwork.

I graduated with an associates from a community college and am currently in the middle of a bachelors degree from a university, do i need to send transcripts from both schools or do i just need to send the one from my current university?

also, i already attached scans of both my private pilot certificate and my cto certificate, this is what i was supposed to do correct?

Welp, I didn't attach transcripts but I'm basing it off work/edu...

edit: I am not active... I am actually basing it off work... nevermind.

If memory serves me correctly (I'm only 26 and already saying this...), the benefit of PDF is the format of the saved document will never change from computer to computer. For instance, if you saved a word document, with the various versions of the Microsoft Word software, sometimes the format can appear differently from computer to computer. In college, professors always designated the type of file to save a document as, usually .doc or .pdf. Personally, I prefer PDF.

With this "special" paper for my official transcripts, I couldn't get a pdf file under the 3mb limit. I had to use JPEG and shrunk it down to about 70% of original size to get under the limit.

IMO 3mb is too small of a limit. It's 2014. File size should at least be 10mb. Come on now
