Foreign University Transcript Evaluation

Students who attended a university outside the United States are required to submit their foreign academic transcripts and the accompanying commercial evaluation. Transcripts in languages other than English must be translated by a certified English translator.

Foreign academic transcripts must be commercially evaluated by a current member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES).

The evaluation must include the following:

  1. course-by-course
  2. upper-level courses identified, and
  3. credits/hours of instruction
  4. If the student wishes to pursue a bachelor's degree, the GPA will be needed for program admission with upper and lower-level course identification and translation to English.

The student is responsible for evaluation fees and there is no guarantee that coursework will transfer.

Electronic commercial evaluations and translations are currently accepted by the following organizations:

PLEASE NOTE: International students who choose to opt out of the commercial evaluation will not be reimbursed for any courses taken at Broward College that are equivalent to courses taken at a previous university. The foreign academic transcripts and the English translation from a certified English translator, if applicable, are still required during the application process. Even if the student chooses to opt out of the commercial evaluation.

The commercial evaluation is not optional for students seeking a bachelor's degree.

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) and who want consideration of prior coursework for credit and course equivalency are required to provide a commercial evaluation.
