See Study Abroad and Overseas US Transcripts for more information on reporting your study abroad experience.

English Canadian Transcripts
Canadian schools that provide English transcripts are not considered foreign. We do not accept foreign transcripts from Canadian schools that provide transcripts in English. If your program requires you to submit official transcripts, submit these transcripts to BioMedCAS. If your program requires you to submit unofficial transcripts or no transcripts, see Colleges Attended for more information. 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. Foreign transcripts can be uploaded under Colleges Attended.
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 BioMedCAS, as they will be discarded. Foreign transcripts can be uploaded under Colleges Attended.
