International students: What you'll need to know when you apply
The Office of International Services at the Health Science Center is your liaison for visa information and other requirements.
Special concerns of international applicants
How do I get a transcript evaluated?
NACES transcript evaluations are required. You will have to work with an accredited transcript evaluator to have your foreign institution’s transcripts evaluated to determine their equivalent U.S. coursework. Then you may send the Request for Unofficial Foreign Transcript Evaluation form to firstname.lastname@example.org along with a PDF copy of your NACES transcript evaluation.
Please allow a minimum of six weeks for this evaluation to be completed. Once we have completed your Unofficial Foreign Transcript Evaluation, the results will be emailed back to you.
How do I get my visa?
Start the visa application process with the Office of International Services. After your acceptance into your program, you will need to complete the process to receive your visa to study in the United States. You will work with the UT Health Science Center San Antonio’s Office of International Services to complete the necessary paperwork and steps to obtain your visa.
