International Applicants/Additional Procedures
Transcript Evaluation: International students who attended any institution outside of the United States must contact one of the following credentialing agencies to submit transcripts for OFFICIAL evaluation: www.wes.org or www.ece.org. Instruct the credentialing agency to send the OFFICIAL evaluation (and translation) directly to the Office of Admissions and Enrollment for Health Professions (address below). The third party documents must be comprehensive and include a course by course evaluation and a GPA calculation. Transcript quality points is a plus.
Evaluations are mandatory even for transcripts from institutions that report grades in English. This provides EVMS with a US credit equivalency and allows the transcripts to be reviewed accurately.
WES and ECE are preferred credentialing services. If you wish to select a company other than these please contact the program office first.
Translation: If the academic institution that you attended does not issue documents in English, the credentialing agency may require that you submit a word-for-word translation of your transcripts if they do not have this service available for purchase. You can contact University Language Services (ULS) at www.universitylanguage.com to submit your transcript for translation and instruct them to send the translated transcript to the credentialing agency.
An OFFICIAL transcript must be submitted to the EVMS Office of Admissions & Enrollment. The third party documents DO NOT exempt the applicant from this institutional requirement.
If you need more clarification about transcript translation and evaluation please review this short video: International Transcripts
TOEFL: International applicants whose native language is not English must take the TOEFL exam and receive a score as follows: Paper-based test: 550; Computer-based test: 213; iBT exam: 80. Please go to the ETS website http://www.ets.org to take the TOEFL exam, and request your TOEFL scores be sent directly to the Office of Admissions and Enrollment for Health Professions. ETS reports scores for two years after the test date. If you have previously taken the TOEFL but the two-year period has expired, the program will accept a personal copy if available.
Official transcripts, scores and supportive application documents should be mailed to the Office of Admissions and Enrollment for Health Professions at the address below. If you experience technical difficulties or related problems in completing your online application, please contact::
