Computer Do not scan "busy background" documents!

Documents should not be on “security paper” with a busy background. Busy backgrounds make the scanned image illegible. If necessary, copy the document onto plain paper.

So based on this statement, this apply for MSPE or Medical school transcript or both ?

I read this statement in "About supporting documents" so is like a general information, but when I read in"MSPE" it does not mention nothing about that.
Then when I read in "Medical school transcript " you can see that do mention about (NO ON A BUSY BACKGROUND).

Please help me to clarify ! I am confused

Do not think about specific document (MSPE or Transcript). Just look at your documents and see if they have busy backgrounds.

If you have one with a busy background then try to photocopy it first and then scan it to minimize the clutter from the background.

Default Thank you !

StepTaker thank you for the information . My MSPE has a thin -clear ( no too evident) busy background but the letters are very legible (black computer ink)

So if I try to do as you said ( a photocopy) first. Is there any problem if the photocopy is in black and white ? or it must be a color copy ?

Thanks in advance!
