International Students

Welcome

Application instructions can be found in the Admissions section. In addition to the program's general admissions requirements and procedures, there are a number of important items that are specific to international students. For detailed information about these, please download the 2009-2011 International Student's Bulletin, and read it carefully. If you have questions after you have read the Bulletin, see the contact information on page 1.

Transcript Evaluation

Applications to Touro Graduate School of Technology from students who have studied outside of the United States can only be processed after the school receives the following two documents:

  1. An original transcript (mark sheet) must be sent to Touro Graduate School of Technology directly from the issuing school. Transcripts issued to students are not considered official documents. Additionally, if your transcript (mark sheet) is in a language other than English, you must provide a certified translation of that transcript.
  2. A course-by-course educational credential evaluation is usually required to certify academic work completed outside the US. This should be sent directly to the School by a recognized accreditation service. Copies of previous evaluations are not acceptable.

We recommend using SpanTran Educational Services. Students applying to Touro get discounted pricing from SpanTran for its services, use application code "NYTOURGR2".
