Technical Standards

Forgien Transcript Policy

The OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine will only accept credit for foreign coursework that has been evaluated by a U.S. evaluation service, when that evaluation report indicates that the coursework was similar to coursework taken at an institution that is comparable to a regionally accredited college or university in the U.S.  As such, any coursework taken at a foreign institution must undergo evaluation for U.S. equivalence by one of the evaluation services accepted by AACOMAS. View list of foreign evaluation services listed by AACOMAS.
