Credits are generally awarded after evaluation for liberal arts and sciences, business, education, computer science and social science courses that (a) are relevant to a student’s program of study, (b) are equivalent to courses offered at Touro, and (c) were completed with a minimum grade of C at an accredited institution.
Obtain sealed, official transcripts from all schools you would like to transfer credits from. Please arrange to have the official transcripts sent to:
Admissions Office Touro University Berlin Am Rupenhorn 5 14055 Berlin Germany
Do notsend any transcripts to our New York location!
If your school offers the option to send an official transcript via e-mail through a service like eTranscript or Parchment, you may have it sent directly to: email@example.com.
We cannot accept any unofficial printouts or screenshots from your online student account. All hard copy transcripts must be stamped and sealed.
Gather the course syllabi for all courses you would like to transfer.
If you no longer have copies of your syllabi, get in touch with the departmental office at your former college to see if they have copies on file.
If you are requesting to transfer credits from a non-US university into our American programs, you must obtain an official credential evaluation report from an external agency.
We accept credential evaluations from any member of NACES (www.naces.org), but Touro usually recommends WES (www.wes.org).
Ensure that you get an evaluation designed for transfer students that is “course-by-course” (and not “document-by-document”).
Some universities in international locations have US accreditation. If you think your school is one of these, please check the CHEA database (http://chea.org/search). If your school does not appear here, you must get a credential evaluation report.
Submit your complete application to your academic advisor for consideration before the deadlines listed above.
