Applicants with education obtained at an institution outside the U.S. must, at their own expense, have their education credentials evaluated by a credential evaluation agency. The applicant should then submit the agency’s report as part of their application by uploading the report to the application portal as a Supporting Documentation attachment.
The agency report must provide the following:
- Confirmation of degree status (i.e. an evaluation of the applicant’s foreign education program that determines an equivalent U.S. degree).
- A breakdown of the applicant’s courses with credits and grade equivalents.
