Foreign Credit Evaluation

International students who wish to transfer college credits from foreign colleges and universities to Jackson College must have their foreign transcripts and credentials evaluated by an independent international credential evaluation service. Credential evaluation means converting foreign academic credentials into their U.S. educational equivalents. The companies listed below produce individualized, written reports describing each certificate, diploma or degree you have earned, including details of individual courses and credits, and specify the U.S. equivalents. JC does not perform its own credit evaluations of foreign transcripts. The following services are recommended. These services charge a fee for the credit evaluations. It is important to request a “course by course” evaluation rather than a “document by document” evaluation. This enables JC to transfer individual course credit.

Credits over 8 years old may not be accepted.  The student may take course placement (or other assessment of prior learning) to determine the student’s level of proficiency.
