    International Transcript Evaluations

    International Transfer Students: If you are transferring from a college or university outside the USA, your coursework will need a credential evaluation. We use a company called One Earth Evaluations; you will not need to pay any fee for the evaluation. Please email eval@oneearthevaluations.org to request an evaluation. You may also need to provide course syllabi to determine course equivalency. Please obtain those as soon as possible.
