  • Transcripts must be received in our office in sealed envelopes mailed directly to Temple School of Pharmacy from the applicant's former university(ies). Originals or copies sent by the applicant cannot be accepted. Failure to follow these policies will result in a delay in the processing of your application.
  • Having your academic records evaluated by World Education Services (WES) is encouraged to avoid delays in the evaluation process.  WES will send their report directly to Temple.
  • Uncertain as to what academic records must be submitted to make application for graduate study? Visit the World Education Services (WES) website at http://wes.org/required and locate your home country. The requirements of Temple University are the same as those specified by WES.
  • Applications cannot be processed without proper documentation.

In addition, scores on the Graduate Record Exams (GREs) must be submitted and all foreign transcripts must be evaluated for equivalency. Temple University offers a foreign credentials evaluation service on a during the months of December through March each year. The evaluation process can be time consuming and students are strongly encouraged to get their transcripts to our office as soon as possible (deadline is December 15th). Alternatively, outside services such as World Education Services (WES) will evaluate your transcript in approximately one week for a fee. Fees for these services are approximately $100-200. The results of these formal evaluations may be used in the future for other purposes.
