Hi!Was wondering if PG diploma course from Annamalai university(Distance ) and any other university is enough for meeting the 16 year requirements which US universities demand for a masters programme?I have finished my in 2013 and was hoping to get some clear advice on what will count for the requisite number of credits?

Dear Shashank,

Congratulations on your graduation!

Good to see that you are interested in pursuing a Masters degree after B. Com.

Before I get into the validity of PG Diploma(Distance) from Annamalai, let me clarify that not all US Universities want 16 years of education to be completed. Some may accept you with 15 yrs as well. They will want to have a closer look at your B.Com. transcript and maybe a WES evaluation before deciding on whether you need another 1 yr of studies.

Having said that, I would strongly urge you to contact a few US Universities to get a sense.

To summarize, I want you to believe what the Admission Committee says rather than going by a general perception prevailing among students.

Hope this helps.
