International Student Requirements


  1. All documents submitted to PNCA must be in English; therefore, official translations are required.
  2. For students wishing to transfer credits from an institution outside of the U.S. or those applying to the graduate program, your transcripts must be evaluated by WES. WES does not translate your transcripts. Instead you must provide officially translated transcripts to WES. See the WES website for more details and how to start this process.


Proof of English Proficiency

  1. English language test scores are not needed for students who are citizens of any of the following countries and attended schools where English is the primary language of instruction:
    • United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Singapore, India, South Africa and Commonwealth Caribbean (Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago).
  2. International students who received a diploma or degree from a non-English teaching institution must provide official test scores showing proficiency in English. TOEFL and IELTS are the most common English testing services available. If you have achieved English proficiency from a different testing service, please contact Rianna RobertsonLeVay,, for the minimum score requirements.
