Foreign Transcript Evaluation

Students wishing to use coursework from a foreign college or university will need to get their coursework evaluated. Once the evaluation has been completed, please submit official copies to Admissions & Records. Please keep in mind that SCC is unable to award credit for coursework that is high school, remedial, or post-baccalaureate in nature.

We will accept evaluations that are completed by a company that is a current member of NACES or AICE. When asking for an evaluation, ask for a breakdown of course work into General Education Academic Areas, whether or not unit values are in Semester or Quarter Units, and which coursework is lower and/or upper-division or graduate level.

Official transcripts from colleges, universities, foreign transcript evaluation agencies, and high schools should be sent to:

Sacramento City College
