Evaluation of International Credentials and Credits 

Learn how to get your international credentials and credits evaluated for admissibility and transferrable credits at UMGC Europe.

Transcript Evaluation: You are seeking to have an international high school or college transcript evaluated for eligibility to attend UMGC. To have the credential evaluated for degree equivalency, educational level, or total hours attained, request a general evaluation (also known as document-by-document or global evaluation). Evaluation must include original transcript documents with translation and evaluation.

Credit Evaluation: You are seeking to transfer course credit toward programs/degrees at UMGC. To have course credit considered for transfer, a course-by-course evaluation is required. Evaluation must include original transcript documents with translation and evaluation.

How to get your international credential or credit evaluated.

UMGC accepts credential and credit evaluations from any National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES)-approved organization, including the World Education Services (WES) and International and Education Research Foundations (IERF). Find an evaluation agency on the NACES website.  All are independent and not affiliated with UMGC.

  • Follow the specific instructions of the agency, including information about translation of the credentials
  • Include full payment as instructed by the agency
  • Mail completed forms and payment directly to the agency—not to UMGC
  • Request that the agency send the completed evaluation to  UMGC at the following address:

Attn: Student Records
University of Maryland Global Campus
3501 University Blvd. East
Adelphi, MD 20783-8075

UMGC reserves the right to determine acceptability and/or placement of international academic credit. Evaluation by an international evaluation agency does not guarantee acceptance or use in the UMGC degree.

Note: For course transfer credit toward UMGC programs/degrees, UMGC may request additional information, such as a course syllabus.
