Students from foreign countries are eligible for admission to Touro College upon graduation from high school or the equivalent. Such students follow the same application procedure as other candidates for admission.

Students whose native language is not English, or who did not receive their secondary education in an English-speaking country must also demonstrate proficiency in English through satisfactory performance on either the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) examination, the International English Testing System (IELTS) examination, or an English placement exam.

Foreign Transcript Evaluation

Students with foreign transcripts are required to have them evaluated by a School of Health Sciences-approved agency. A list of agencies is available from the Office of Admissions or by visiting www.naces.org/members.htm. In addition, the international applicant must submit an original foreign transcript, and if not in English, a certified translation. For a student transferring from a US institution, a transfer status form must be completed by your present school.
