Default Medical Credentials

Hi, I have a question and hopefully someone here knows the answer

Already took step 1 as a student. Just graduated and I have now my medical credentials verified. If I apply for USMLE Step 2 CK, does ECFMG send my med school any additional verification or request, or notification that I am applying for the exam. Or once I have my medical credentials verified, I can take any test without the med school knowing. Will I received my schedule in permit, without the uni doing any verification.

Thank you so much in advance

I'm assuming you are an IMG. If that's the case, Yes they will send one of the forms to your university in order to verify your credentials and transcripts. I mean.. They need your diploma once you're graduated.
Once you pay the ck and have your permit they will give you the option to hold any results of your test from your university.

You will find this option on your ecfmg page.
Hope it helps.
