Students who have completed high school, college or university course work at an institution in a country other than the United States must obtain a complete evaluation of foreign transcripts. A detailed, course-by-course, foreign transcript evaluation is required, even if the foreign course work has been accepted by a college or university in the United States.

Foreign transcripts must be evaluated by one of the approved organizations listed below. These organizations are private enterprises who charge a fee for their services. Students seeking a foreign transcript evaluation must follow the procedures outlined by the organization providing the evaluation.
