Students need to submit official transcripts from all undergraduate and graduate work to the Office of Admissions from each university you’ve attended. You must be in good standing and eligible to return to the last institution attended. We may require that you have your official transcripts evaluated by an outside evaluation service if the official transcript is not in English. It will need to be course by course evaluation. You can have your previous universities email your official college transcripts from each university attended to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Foreign College transcripts may be required to be evaluated directly from an evaluation service affiliated with the National Association of Credit Evaluation Services (NACES) or the Association of International Credential Evaluators (AICE). For a listing of NACES member organizations and their contact information, please visit https://www.naces.org/members. For a list of AICE endorsed member organizations and their contact information, please visit https://aice-eval.org/.
