Foreign and French-Canadian Transcripts

Overview for Official Transcripts

This topic pertains to applicants who attended foreign and French-Canadian schools. These instructions do not apply to applicants who attended a foreign school as part of a study abroad program. See Study Abroad and Overseas US Transcripts for more information on reporting your study abroad experience.

If your program requires you to submit official transcripts, follow the steps below. If your program requires you to submit unofficial transcripts or no transcripts, see Colleges Attended for more information.

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 BusinessCAS. 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. Depending on your program’s requirements, you may need to:

  • Submit official transcripts directly from your school in a sealed envelope. Transcripts must include a certified English translation; transcripts that do not meet these requirements will be discarded.
  • Submit official foreign evaluations.
  • Upload unofficial copies of your foreign transcripts or evaluations.

Check your program’s requirements to learn more.

If submitting official transcripts, your registrar should mail your paper transcripts to the following address:

BusinessCAS Transcript Processing Center
PO Box 9221
Watertown, MA 02471

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. Depending on your program’s requirements, you may need to:

  • Submit official transcripts directly from your school in a sealed envelope. Transcripts must be in English or include a certified English translation; transcripts that do not meet these requirements will be discarded.
  • Submit official foreign evaluations.

Documenting Foreign Coursework

If you attended a foreign school or earned your degree outside of the United States, some BusinessCAS programs require you to submit your coursework to a US-based evaluation service for a course-by-course US equivalency report. This report should then be sent directly to BusinessCAS from the evaluation service. Check your program's requirements to learn more.

Be sure to contact a foreign transcript evaluation service as early as possible. See below for more information on vendors and accepted formats. Services can take several weeks to process your transcript(s) once received.
