Graduates and 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.
