3. Official Transcripts and Foreign Credential Evaluation of Transfer Credit

  • U.S. Colleges - Submit an official transcript for every school you have attended. You do not need a credential evaluation for U.S. schools.
  • Foreign Universities and Colleges - Submit an official course-by-course credential evaluation for every school you have attended. You will need to send your official foreign records to an evaluation company. The company will then send us a copy of your transcripts and an evaluation, converting your foreign grades to their U.S. equivalent. We recommend using IEE, Educational Perspectives, or ECE for the evaluation. (Please note: Please be aware WES does not offer a course-by-course evaluation for high school records and does not include high school information with a college credit evaluation.  For these reasons, WES evaluations do not meet our evaluation requirements.  There is a good chance we will request a new evaluation if you submit a WES evaluation to our office.)
  • For more information on criteria used to determine admission, please review the Transfer Admissions Requirements.
  • If you are still enrolled at a college or university at the time of application, you must send an updated credential evaluation prior to your enrollment at UNC Charlotte.
