International Transcript Evaluation


  1. Applicants seeking certificate/diploma/degree programs of study that have completed all or part of their education outside of the United States and the United States territories are required to have their foreign educational credentials evaluated by an independent evaluation service.
    1. A document-by-document evaluation is required for high school transcripts or diplomas.
    2. A course-by-course evaluation is required for postsecondary education credentials.
    3. From each institution you attended, request an official transcript (in sealed envelopes) to be sent to a Foreign Educational Evaluation Service for a document-by-document (high school) or course-by-course (postsecondary) evaluation. (See the Foreign Educational Evaluation Service application for information regarding documents in a language other than English).
    4. Request the Foreign Educational Evaluation Service to send the document-by-document or course-by-course evaluation directly to GPTC.
