Additional Requirements for International Coursework
Students who have taken coursework outside of the United States should submit a course-by-course academic credential evaluation from a National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) member credentialing organization. Applicants who do not have a NACES evaluation are required to submit official transcripts, along with an official English translation, to Jefferson for review. Thomas Jefferson University reserves the right to outsource student academic credentials to our NACES member partner for evaluation.
At Jefferson, we set a high priority on the exchange of ideas, research, and education with members of the international community. Learn more about specific requirements for international applicants.
