Credential Evaluation

Students who have attended schools, colleges or universities outside of the United States are required to submit a professional credential evaluation to determine the equivalent academic credential in the U.S. system. To be considered for transfer credit, the evaluation must be an official course-by-course report that is sent directly to TTC by the evaluation service or submitted in a sealed envelope.

Most evaluation services will require that official transcripts be sent from the foreign educational institution directly to them. They may also require certified translations of documents. A fee from the student is also required for the evaluation of credentials. The payment and all contact regarding this process is done directly with the evaluation service of your choice.

Trident Technical College will consider an evaluation from any member of the National Association of Credential Services (NACES).

Students seeking admission to the college's Health Sciences or Nursing programs will be required to submit an official evaluation report that includes all institutions attended abroad and official transcripts of all U.S. institutions attended, whether a degree was awarded or not.
