2. The evaluation must include a course-by-course review and include the following:

  • Semester unit equivalency
  • Course Characteristics (distinction between lower/upper division coursework, letter grades)
  • Level of Courses (certification that your coursework is equivalent to coursework from a regionally accredited U.S. 2-year or 4-year or postsecondary institution)

What Happens Next?

  • Upon receiving your official transcript evaluation, please schedule an appointment with a Counselor at your College. Do not open your sealed official transcript evaluation once you receive them (if opened, the transcript evaluation is considered unofficial).
  • Students must meet with a Counselor in prior to submitting a Request for Initial Evaluation. Upon submission, the Coordinator-Admissions and Records/Transcripts will process the request.
  • Students may be required to submit course description(s), course outline(s), and/or syllabus translated to English to complete the evaluation process.

Please note:

*UC and CSU institutions reserve the right to make their own determinations on transferability and applicability to their own requirements.*

*We cannot apply international coursework to CSU GE Breadth or IGETC Certification for transfer purposes.*
