International Transcripts

In such cases, the applicants/students will be responsible for contacting an approved foreign credential evaluation agency and for paying any costs incurred. Transcripts not in English must be evaluated by an appropriate third party and translated into English or a trained transcript evaluator fluent in the language on the transcript. In this case, the evaluator must have expertise in the educational practices of the country of origin and include an English translation of the review.
