Credentials and Evaluation

Transcript Evaluation

International Students

Do not submit an evaluation request until the appropriate steps have been taken.

  • Please request evaluations at least one quarter before you want the credits transferred. Only transcripts of students currently attending classes and former students will be evaluated. We do not do evaluations for non-students. Apply for transcript evaluation online using the GATE credential evaluation system.

  • Official transcripts will be accepted via mail directly from the recording college or in a sealed envelope if hand-carried. All transcripts to be evaluated must be listed in your application. Please do not abbreviate the names of colleges and universities. All listed transcripts must be on file before the evaluation process will begin.

  • Military Transcript Requests: To request Military Transcripts be sent to the college, please visit the Joint Services Transcript Request page.  You may also contact the Veterans Resource Center for assistance.
  • All college and military Transcripts should be sent to:

What Do I Need to Keep in Mind?

Our department does hundreds of evaluations each month. Evaluations generally take eight to ten weeks, once all materials have been received. Please be patient.
