PNCA requires applicants who plan to transfer academic credits earned at non-US institutions to submit a translated evaluation of their secondary (high school) and postsecondary (college) transcript(s).
International students must demonstrate English language proficiency. Students from countries where English is the official language do not need to submit English language test scores to demonstrate proficiency.
All test scores must be taken within two years from the date of the application to PNCA. Official test scores must be directly sent from the testing service to the PNCA Office of International Admissions.
