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.

Nepalese Community at Touro

The Nepalese Society at Touro College was established in October 2010 under the Supervision of Professor Arjun Mahat of the Computer Science Department. Professor Mahat, who originally came to Touro College as an international student, helped to organize the Nepalese Society as the number of Nepalese Students at Touro had grown considerably. He and Mr. Narayan Malla, also an international student, organized the Nepalese Society to help students socialize and find answers to any questions they might have living in a foreign country. As its first priority, the Nepalese Society helps Nepalese students share resources, benefit from academic advisements, learn about the specifics of immigration Status, provide access to scholarship information, and share their personal ideas and much more.

The Nepalese Society holds an Annual Meeting each year at which the members meet for hour or two, share information and ideas, and meet new friends.
