Enter all international (non-United States/foreign) institutions you have attended on your PTCAS application.
If you attended a Canadian institution that does not
issue transcripts in English, then do not
send the transcript to PTCAS. Instead, follow the foreign transcript
instructions on the PTCAS Directory for each program. Most programs will require
a foreign transcript evaluation. PTCAS will not hold an application for this
documentation, if it is missing.
If you participated in a study-abroad program under the
auspices of a United States institution, and the course work appears on the United
States transcript as regular itemized credit, follow the steps below.
PTCAS recognizes overseas United States institutions that
are accredited through an agency approved by the United States Department of
Education and uses English as the primary language of instruction and
documentation. Submit transcripts and coursework for overseas United States institutions
and United States institutions with a campus overseas (eg, the University of
Maryland at Munich).
Enter all international (non-United States/foreign)
institutions you have attended on your PTCAS application. If required by the program, order a foreign
transcript evaluation from World Education
Services (WES) through the PTCAS application. Select the WES “course
by course” option with grades. Contact WES directly regarding questions about
the foreign evaluation at 212/966-6311 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you accept an offer of admission to a program, you may
be required prior to matriculation to submit a second set of official
transcripts from every institution you have attended. You must send this second
set directly to the program; PTCAS cannot forward transcripts to a program to
fulfill this institutional requirement.
PTCAS does not waive transcript requirements due to
unpaid fees from the applicant to a college or university. Applicants who are
unable to obtain an official transcript from an institution due to extenuating
circumstances, such as a closed institution, must submit a signed letter of
explanation on official letterhead from the appropriate institution or state
department of education. PTCAS will evaluate transcript waiver requests on a
PTCAS will investigate and report applicants suspected of
submitting false or fraudulent information. If any misrepresentation in data is
suspected by or reported to PTCAS, the applicant will be notified, and relevant
information will be requested. If a misrepresentation in data is confirmed,
PTCAS will notify the programs to which the applicant has applied. In addition,
on a case-by-case basis, PTCAS reserves the right to notify all programs
participating in the service.
