Enter all international (non-United States/foreign) institutions you have attended on your PTCAS application.
Review the program-specific admission requirements to determine if original transcripts or foreign transcript evaluations for Canadian coursework must be submitted directly to the program or PTCAS.
PTCAS recognizes "overseas US institutions" that are located outside the United States borders, are regionally accredited, and use English as the primary language of instruction and documentation. If you attended an overseas US institution, send an official transcript to PTCAS and enter all courses on your PTCAS application. US institutions with campuses overseas (eg, University of Maryland at Munich) are also considered US colleges for which transcripts are required and all course work must be listed.
Do not enter any foreign courses completed outside the US or Canada (unless "study abroad" through a US institution).Visit the PTCAS Directory to determine the foreign transcript requirements for each PT program, as described below:
PTCAS will only accept foreign transcript evaluations from the World Education Services (WES) and will no longer accept evaluations from other agencies. Arrange for WES to send a course-by-course report to PTCAS. Applicants are advised to allow 4–6 weeks for WES to process and send the evaluation to PTCAS, once a report is requested.
