Admission Requirements

Initial evaluation of potential applicants is done through individual interviews conducted by the Chairperson of Undergraduate Studies or his designee. Students are evaluated in terms of their prior academic records, their extracurricular activities, and personal traits that affect the likelihood for success in given academic or professional paths. Candidates should bring to the interview copies of transcripts of all prior education. The following is additional information that is required as part of the application process:

  • Completed TouroApply online application accompanied by the $50 application fee
  • Official high school transcript or GED certificate and score sheet, unless the applicant holds a college degree;
  • Official transcripts from all colleges. Documentation should be sent directly to Touro College School of Health Sciences Office of Admissions at 1700 Union Boulevard, Bay Shore, NY 11706, by the issuing school. Transcripts issued to students are not official unless they are issued in a sealed envelope. All foreign documents must be accompanied by an official English translation and a course-by-course evaluation by a Touro-approved service. A list of such approved services may be obtained from the Registrar’s office, or by visiting www.naces.org/members.htm;
