WHAT DO WE CONSIDER OFFICIAL RECORDS?
All transcripts and related documents are considered official only when they bear the original signature of a school official and original school seal. Accepted school officials include the Registrar, Principal, Controller of Examinations, or the Ministry of Education.
Originals or certified copies of these records must be in the institution's language and must be accompanied by officially certified English translations.
FRESHMAN APPLICANTS WHO ARE STILL IN SECONDARY/HIGH SCHOOL
Submit official records showing grades for the last three years of education in the original language and should include a translation if NOT in English, and official test score results required to satisfy the English Language Proficiency.
Certified English translations must be provided from organizations that are recognized by the U.S. Department of Education such as the National Association of Creditial Evaluation Services (NACE), Association of International Credential Evaluators (AICE), or other certified credentialing services.
TRANSFER AND GRADUATE APPLICANTS WHO ARE OR WERE ENROLLED AT AN INSTITUTION OF HIGHER EDUCATION
Submit ALL official transcript(s), grade sheets, and degree certificates for each year from ALL university and/or college(s) attended.
Transfer students who have completed fewer than 24 transferable credits of college-level work from an accredited international institution or regionally accredited U.S. college or university must also submit secondary school transcripts in their native language with a certified English translation.
Students who have attended post-secondary educational international institutions/colleges/universities outside the U.S, are required to submit, in addition to the original transcripts, a professional credential evaluation of all work completed (with a course-by-course with GPA report) from organizations that are recognized by the U.S. Department of Education such as the National Association of Creditial Evaluation Services (NACE), Association of International Credential Evaluators (AICE), or other certified credentialing services.
