you do not need your degree to register for step 1 , what they need is your deam office stamp and ur dean signature .( form 186 )

I'm afraid I'm not in a good position to answer your question , but anyway , you can always give a call to ecfmg , I believe all your problem could be solved by just a single call

Dude you do not need your marksheet and degree certificate to apply. You need to get your 186 form signed and stamped by your dean and also a letter of dean that you are a graduate and you will receive your degree in some months and then will send it to you. This form and letter should be sent to ECFMG from address of your college. All college has thier own named envelope, you should tell your college to send it by that way!!!! Not from your home address

they have clearly mentioned that 186 should be directly sent from the dean office, unless your school participate in international web portal! when you ll apply online, they ll mention that your school participate in that web portal or not....if it participates, you may send it directly or else you have to send them by dean office
