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 RF-PTCAS 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 RF-PTCAS. 

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 RF-PTCAS, as they will be discarded. Determine whether your programs require foreign evaluations (which may be sent to RF-PTCAS), or if they will accept original Caribbean transcripts mailed directly to the program. 

Documenting Foreign Coursework

If you attended a foreign institution where you received a Physical Therapist degree, you must obtain a foreign transcript evaluation and send it to RF-PTCAS. Foreign evaluations are only accepted in paper format; electronic copies are not accepted.

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

Do not send foreign transcripts to RF-PTCAS, including those printed in English or translated into English; they will be discarded.
