If you attended a Canadian high school, college or university where the primary language is not English, you'll need to have your transcripts evaluated by an accredited transcript evaluation service. Transcripts from Canadian high schools, colleges, and universities with English as the primary language do not need evaluation.
Transcript Evaluation Agencies:
- World Education Services
- International Academic Credential Evaluators, Inc.
- Josef Silny and Associates
- Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools (recommended for nursing and health-related applicants)
- Education Credential Evaluators(recommended for pharmacy and pre-pharmacy applicants)
- Foreign Credentialing Commission on Physical Therapy (recommended for physical therapy graduate applicants)
All applicants must submit a document-by-document evaluation (or equivalent). If you are transferring credits from a foreign college or university, these transcripts must receive a course-by-course evaluation (or equivalent).
Undergraduate Students: Admissions decisions are made once all documents have been received, reviewed and evaluated by the Admissions Office. Once accepted, a non-refundable reservation deposit of $150 must be paid in US funds. This deposit will be applied to the first semester's tuition.
Graduate Students: Admissions decisions are made once all documents have been received, reviewed and evaluated by the Graduate Admissions Office. Once accepted, a non-refundable reservation deposit of $300 in US funds must be submitted to the Graduate Admissions Office. This deposit will be applied to the first semester's tuition.
All Canadian citizens and permanent residents must obtain a Federal Form I-20. Your I-20 form will be issued after submitting your tuition deposit, the international student financial forms and supporting bank documentation. Instructions will be given with your I-20 on how to process it at the border. Permanent residents in Canada must make an appointment at a US consulate in order to obtain a student visa. Also, Canadian students may attend school in the US on a part-time basis but may not live in the United States.
