About Commercial Transcript Evaluations
When must my evaluation be turned in?
Students who have completed university course work outside the United States and desire transfer credit are required to complete a commercial evaluation of all course work completed. This is required even if you have not completed the degree. The commercial evaluation is
not optional for students seeking a bachelor's degree.
PLEASE NOTE: Students who choose not to provide a commercial evaluation will not be reimbursed for any courses taken at Broward College that are equivalent to courses taken at a previous university.
Students who have completed Advanced Level (A-Level) or Advanced Subsidiary Level (AS Level) from the British system (General Certificate of Education - GCE) are not required to provide a commercial evaluation. The evaluation will be completed by the College's Evaluations Department.
Students who have completed the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) who desire transfer credits are required to provide a commercial evaluation.
