When and how to get foreign transcripts evaluated

Also, some jobs pay more if you have a high school diploma or a university degree. If you do not need your foreign transcripts evaluated, you can save money on evaluation fees.


If you are applying for a professional position, you should definitely get your degree evaluated. Get started as soon as you search for jobs because it can take a long time.


First, get a transcript from your school. Then submit it to a transcript evaluation company. There are usually two types of evaluations:

  • 课程审核:成绩单审核者会从外国成绩单中检视你修过的每一堂课,为了要了解你修过的课程是否与你在美国需要的课程是相似的。通常在申请大学入学时会经过这种审核,且需要花费150-200美金
  • 一般审核成绩单审核者会检视外国成绩单,为了要了解你在本国所获得的学位与美国学位是否是相似的。通常在申请工作时会经过这种审核,且需要花费400美金左右

Course by course evaluation: The transcript evaluator looks at foreign transcripts to see all the classes you took one by one. They are looking to see if the classes you took are similar to the ones you need in the USA. This is done when you want to apply to college. It usually costs $150–$200.


General evaluation: The transcript evaluator looks at foreign transcripts to see if the degree you have from your home county is the same as a degree in the US. This is usually done when you are applying for jobs. It costs around $400.


Problems with evaluations


Sometimes, the school you went to may be closed. It could also be in an area that is not safe. Either way, you might not be able to get you school transcript. If you are trying to get a transcript for work, explain to the company’s human resources department. If it is for school, call the school admissions department about your problem.


Evaluation results


You may learn that you need to take more classes to complete your degree in the US. This can feel very frustrating. Remember that there is a reason for this. For example, an architect in Iraq and an architect in the United States might do the same job. But there are different regulations to learn.


If you had a job that took a lot of education in your country, you probably will need to work on getting a new certification or taking more classes. Doctors, lawyers, and teachers all need to to this. For jobs that don’t require degrees, you may be not need new certification. Your skills will be enough to show you can do the job.


If you are confused about your evaluation results and would like more help, you can contact the company who did the evaluation. You can also meet with a school counselor. They will help you read your evaluation and will tell you what classes you need to take.
