Enter all international (non-U.S./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 US 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 (such as the 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 U.S. or Canada (unless "study abroad" through a U.S. institution).
Visit the PTCAS Directory to determine the foreign transcript requirements for each PT program, as described below:
PT program may specify which agency you must use. PTCAS does not verify that you have used the correct agency for a particular PT program. Arrange for the course-by-course report to be sent from the agency to PTCAS. PTCAS only accepts foreign transcript evaluations from the five agencies listed below:
