Official Non-U.S. Transcripts
Students who attended a university outside the United States and want consideration of prior course work for credit and course equivalency must submit their foreign academic transcripts and the accompanying commercial evaluation. Foreign academic transcripts must be commercially evaluated by a current member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) (www.naces.org/members). These evaluations must include the following:
(a) course-by-course(b) upper level courses identified, and(c) credits/hours of instruction(d) If the student wishes to pursue a bachelors degree, the GPA will be needed for program admission. with upper and lower level course identification and translation to English.

Students residing in the U.S. with prior coursework from postsecondary institutions outside of the country must follow the same guidelines as indicated relative to submitting all prior coursework for evaluation. Transcripts in languages other than English must be translated.
Exceptions to the General Rule for Equivalency
Since the initial implementation of the State Course Numbering System (SCNS), specific disciplines or types of courses have been exempted from the guarantee of transfer for equivalent courses. These include courses that must be evaluated individually or courses in which the student must be evaluated for mastery of skill and technique. Transferability is at the discretion of the receiving institution.
Students will not be accepted without appropriate proof of high school graduation. If we are unable to verify the credential, we will require a commercial evaluation of the high school documents. We only accept evaluations completed by current members of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES).
