Educational Credential Evaluation

We will only process applications for admissions from students who have studied outside of the United States after the school receives the following two documents:

  1. An original transcript (mark sheet) must be sent to Touro Graduate School of Technology directly from the issuing school. Transcripts issued to students are not considered official documents.
  2. A course-by-course educational credential evaluation in English is usually required to certify academic work completed outside the US. This should be sent directly to the school by a NACES approved accreditation service. Copies of previous evaluations are not acceptable.

We recommend using Institute of Foreign Credential Services or SpanTran Educational Services. Students applying to Touro get discounted pricing from IFCS or from SpanTran. With IFCS use the application code "DISNY" to get a $20 for a course-by-course analysis completed within 5 working days (once all the requested documents are received). If you choose SpanTran Evaluation Company, use this link to get a Touro discount.
