Foreign Transcripts


Students that have graduated high school or attended a post-secondary institution outside of the United States must submit an official copy of their academic transcript to World Education Services (WES). Do not submit your foreign transcripts directly to UAA. WES will analyze your international degrees and/or coursework and provide U.S. equivalents.

 

High school outside of the United States

Students who have earned their high school diploma outside of the United States are required to order a WES document by document evaluation of their transcript. This option is only for students that have not attended any post-secondary institution outside of the United States. Be sure to designate UAA as the recipient of your evaluation. UAA does not accept WES evaluations from the student. 
 
 

Post-secondary institution outside of the United States

Students who have studied or earned a degree at a post-secondary institution outside of the United States are required to order the WES ICAP course by course evaluation option. Be sure to designate UAA as the recipient of your evaluation. UAA does not accept WES evaluations from the student.

 
 

Ordering Process

You will order your evaluation directly from WES. Select the evaluation type based on your education level (described above). You will pay the associated fee directly to WES. Be sure to designate UAA as the recipient of your evaluation. UAA does not accept WES evaluations from the students.
