Study Abroad or Overseas US Transcripts

Overview

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.

The process for reporting Study Abroad coursework varies depending on the program type and how the domestic institution reports it. Review the options below to determine how to report your experience. Contact customer service with any questions.

Study Abroad at an Overseas US Institution

If you studied at an overseas US institution, you need to:

  • Add the school in the Colleges Attended section and add any courses you completed at the school in the Transcript Entry section. Make sure you mark these courses as Study Abroad during Transcript Review. 
  • Arrange for the Overseas US Institution to send your transcript directly to PharmGrad.

Study Abroad at Another US Institution

If you used another US institution's program to study abroad, studied via Semester at Sea, SIT, or a CEA study abroad program in their Global Campus Network, you need to:

  • Add the school in the Colleges Attended section and add any courses you completed at the school in the Transcript Entry section. Make sure you mark these courses as Study Abroad during Transcript Review. 
  • Arrange for the school to send your transcript directly to PharmGrad.

Study Abroad via Any Other Method

If the two options above do not apply to you, review the following scenarios:

  • If your full credits and grades for study abroad courses appear on your undergraduate transcript, you should list these courses normally with the rest of your undergraduate courses. Make sure you mark these courses as Study Abroad during Transcript Review. Do not report your study abroad school as a foreign institution. No additional documentation is needed. Acceptable grades include A-F, Credit, Pass, etc. Entering "TR" for "transfer" is not an acceptable grade, nor are credits and grades that do not match those on the rest of your transcript (i.e. the grades are not US grades). If your courses have grades of TR or are recorded in foreign grades, use the option below. 
  • If your full credits and/or grades for study abroad courses do not appear on your undergraduate transcript, you should report that you attended a foreign institution. You do not need to list your courses under the foreign schools as we do not allow foreign coursework to be recorded. Do not send any documentation unless an evaluation is required by a program that you're applying to; check with your programs to determine if they require foreign evaluations.
