Form Applying as a student- do I need forms 187 and 344 or only form 186?

Hi guys!

This is urgent.
I am applying as a student. My school is not a very big help.
Do I need to send form 186, form 187 and form 344 or only form 186?

This is from form 344:
If you are a medical school student applying to ECFMG for an examination and
you do not have a valid
Certification of Identification Form (Form 186) on file with
ECFMG
or if you are required to submit a Certification Statement (Form 183)
, the
completed
ECFMG Medical Education Credentials Submission Form (Form 344),
medical education credentials, and any other required documents must be
accompanied by an
IWA Document Submission Form (Form 187) and must be sent with
your
Certification of Identification Form or Certification Statement. These forms and
documents must be sent to ECFMG in one envelope. This envelope
must be sent to
ECFMG directly from the office of the medical school official who certified your

Certification of Identification Form or Certification Statement.


So it seems to me as a student, I need to send form 186, 187 and 344. Is that correct?

Also, my school will not send the documents. How should I proceed? Is it ok if they put it in an envelope for me and I send it (I pay for the fees)?

Thanks for your help!

Hey there,
I was in your situation a few months ago, and I only sent form 186 coz I'm still a student. My med school is also very lazy, so they just signed form 186 for me and I put in an envelope which they sealed and stamped. I then paid myself to send it via DHL.

Hope this helps

Thank you for your answer! Sounds like my school
Guess I'll just bring an envelope for them to stamp.
Did ECFMG accept your application?
Can you take the test without having to send any form other than 186?

Thanks a lot!

Yes ECFMG did accept my form 186.
But you med school will have to verify your status online before you can take the exam.
If your med school is indeed as unhelpful as mine (sure sounds like it ) then I suggest you keep bugging them to do it after your form gets accepted.

Good luck!
