I you have not had your credentials evaluated, PTC will arrange for an evaluation to be completed.
Incoming international students will need to have their credentials from their previous schools evaluated as part of the PTC application process. There are several organizations that assist in credential evaluation. The World Education Services organization and the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers provide this service. To contact these organizations we have provided links to their websites below. Your PTC Admissions representative will be happy to help you with the credential evaluation process.
