Foreign and French-Canadian Transcripts

Canadian Schools

English-Canadian Transcripts

Canadian schools that provide English transcripts are not considered foreign. We do not accept foreign evaluations from Canadian schools that provide transcripts in English. Transcripts from these schools must be sent to AAPI even if your program does not accept them. Please see the US and English-Canadian Transcripts section for information on reporting that coursework.

French-Canadian Transcripts

Canadian schools that issue transcripts in French are considered foreign and must be reported like any other foreign school. We cannot accept original Canadian transcripts which are written in French. However, foreign evaluations for these schools should be sent to AAPI. 

Caribbean Medical Schools

All Caribbean medical schools are considered foreign institutions and are not US accredited, even if they have offices in the US or allow US licensing. Do not send transcripts from these schools to AAPI, as they will be discarded. Determine whether your programs require foreign evaluations (which may be sent to AAPI), or if they will accept original Caribbean transcripts mailed directly to the program. 

Documenting Foreign Coursework

If you attended a foreign school or earned your degree outside of the United States, AAPI does not require any documentation, but you can submit your foreign coursework to a US-based evaluation service for a course-by-course US equivalency report. This report should then be sent directly to AAPI from the evaluation service. 

Contact a foreign transcript evaluation service as early as possible. Services can take several weeks to process your transcript(s) once received. 

Foreign Evaluation Vendors

The following are foreign evaluation vendors our applicants have used in the past. This list is not all-inclusive and we do not recommend or endorse any particular vendor or service. Check with your programs to see if they have a preferred or required vendor that may not be on this list.

If you send foreign evaluations, use the following address:

AAPI Transcript Processing Center
PO Box 9117
Watertown, MA 02471

International applicants can also send foreign evaluations to the following street address:

AAPI Transcript Processing Center
c/o Liaison International
311 Arsenal Street
STE 5600
Watertown, MA 02472

We are not responsible for any materials lost in the mail. Express or certified mail does not guarantee faster processing or receipt.
