TRANSCRIPT REQUIREMENT

Final, official transcripts are required from all post-secondary schools attended (e.g., colleges, universities, professional schools, etc.) and must document completion of a bachelor’s degree and all required coursework, from regionally accredited institutions (or their equivalent).

If you applied through an application service (e.g., AACOMAS, PharmCAS, CASPA, or SOPHAS) and you submitted final, official transcripts through those services, you will not need to resend them provided we are able to download your transcripts from the service.  You will, however, be required to submit final, official transcripts for any and all coursework completed after you submitted your application.  

Transcripts must be received prior to the first day of mandatory orientation.  Please also remember that all pre-requisite requirements, including completion of the Bachelor's degree (if required), must be satisfied prior to the first day of mandatory orientation, otherwise, you will not be eligible to begin classes.

When at all possible, transcripts should be submitted electronically from your school or transcript service to admit@tu.edu

If electronic delivery is not possible, transcripts may be mailed from your school or transcript service to the following address: 

Touro University California
Office of Admissions – (insert college/program name here)
1310 Club Drive
Vallejo, CA 94592
 
Transcripts must include:
      • Your full name (as it appears on your application for admission)
      • Either your primary application ID (AACOMAS, PharmCAS, CASPA ID) or the last four digits of your social security number

The most common reason transcripts are not recorded is because the name on the transcript does not match the name in the application.  If you attended schools under a maiden or other name, you must alert the Office of Admissions that your transcripts may arrive under a different name.  Transcripts received without proper identification may not be recorded, which may delay and/or interfere with your ability to register for classes.

 

Graduates & Students of Foreign Institutions

Except in cases where the institution is regionally accredited by a U.S. regional accrediting agency, all coursework completed outside of the United States must be submitted for evaluation through one of the agencies listed below.  Evaluations submitted using other services will not be processed.

At minimum, the transcript evaluation must include the following information:

        1. Course by course evaluation
        2. Number of semester units each course is worth
        3. Letter grade for each course
        4. Cumulative GPA 
        5. Whether or not the degree program completed should be considered to be equivalent to a Bachelor's Degree from a regionally accredited US institution

If any of this information is missing, the evaluation will not be processed.  When possible, the evaluation should also include a science GPA.

When applying to a program which uses a centralized application service (e.g., AACOMAS, PharmCAS, CASPA, SOPHAS, PostBacCAS, or NursingCAS) the evaluation should be submitted or uploaded directly to the application service.  If applying to any other program, the official evaluation should be submitted directly to the Touro University California Office of Admissions.
