DO NOT SEND YOUR FOREIGN TRANSCRIPTS TO AACPMAS. AACPMAS only accepts foreign evaluations!
The majority of AACPMAS programs require applicants to submit official foreign transcripts to an approved foreign transcript evaluation service for a course-by-course US equivalency report. Arrange for foreign transcript reports to be sent directly to AACPMAS from the foreign transcript evaluation agency. Contact the foreign transcript evaluation service as early as possible. The services may take several weeks to process your foreign transcript, once it is received. Below is a list of suggested services for the translation and review of foreign transcripts; however, check with your designated programs for final approval.
