Additional Information

All foreign college or university transcripts require an evaluation by an approved credential evaluation service. The services that are recognized by CU are WES (www.wes.org) or Educational Credential Evaluators (www.ece.org). The student will be responsible for paying for this service and should contact the evaluation service directly to have their transcripts evaluated. Evaluations must be a course by course evaluation with upper division course identification, and grade point average equivalent.
