The University of Arizona Global Campus (UAGC) values learning and understands our international students bring with them a unique mix of possible credits. When certain conditions are met, students may use their international schooling to meet admission requirements, and may receive transfer credit for their successfully completed, international, college-level credits.
International students at UAGC may supply an evaluation from an approved Foreign Evaluation Agency, showing that their previous schooling meets the specific education requirement(s) for admission to the program of their choice. If previous credential(s) were taught in English, the evaluating agency may include language of instruction verification on their report. See the UAGC Academic Catalog for full undergraduate and graduate admission requirements.
Credits earned outside the United States must be evaluated by an approved Foreign Evaluation Agency in order for UAGC to review for equivalency to both content and degree level of a UAGC course. Students are responsible for requesting these official course-by-course international evaluations, which should be sent directly to UAGC by the agency. Occasionally, additional items such as course descriptions may be needed in order for UAGC to evaluate coursework.
Speak to an Enrollment Services Advisor today and request a pre-evaluation of your international credits. Unofficial copies of your foreign course-by-course evaluation are required. Official copies are required in order to award credit on the official evaluation completed by the Office of the Registrar.
RECOMMENDED FOREIGN EVALUATION AGENCIES
UAGC recommends the following Foreign Evaluation Agencies for admissions and/or transfer credit course-by-course foreign evaluations when an evaluation has not been previously completed:
- Education Credential Evaluators (ECE)
- SpanTran (10% Discount for UAGC students)
- World Education Services (WES)
If you have an evaluation from another agency, speak to an Enrollment Services Advisor today. Unofficial copies are required prior to enrollment. Official copies are required for full admission.
Documents translated into English are helpful but not required. A translation does not meet the requirements of an approved foreign evaluation where content is also reviewed and equivalencies are suggested.
Questions? Request More Information
Certain degree programs may not be available in all states.
The transferability of credits is subject to the University of Arizona Global Campus transfer credit policies and requires the submission of official transcripts. The official transcripts will be evaluated by the Registrar’s Office to determine the credits that will officially apply toward a UAGC degree program. Credits must be earned at the same degree level in order to be applied. Additional restrictions may apply. See the UAGC Academic Catalog for full undergraduate and graduate transfer policies.
