Course-by-Course Evaluation Description
This evaluation is usually for international students who wish to enroll in a U.S. institution of higher education, or for professionals seeking licensure for employment.
It includes the information contained in the Document-by-Document evaluation. A description of a Document-by-Document evaluation can be found here.
In addition, it lists each course on the student’s transcript, converts the units to U.S. semester credit hours, and converts the grades to the U.S. 4.0 (A-F) grading scale. A cumulative grade point average is also included on a 4.0 numeric scale.
THE FOLLOWING APPLIES TO APPLICANTS WHO WISH TO PURSUE EDUCATION IN A US INSTITUTION OF LEARNING OR EMPLOYMENT WHEN GRADE POINT AVERAGES AND A LISTING OF TAUGHT COURSES IS REQUIRED:
The Course-by-Course Evaluation is the only form of evaluation acceptable to most U.S. colleges or universities as well as some technical institutions (please confirm with the International Admissions Office of the institution you plan to attend). Where applicants need only show successful completion of higher secondary/high school, a Document-by-Document evaluation is accepted in some cases.
For Course-by-Course evaluations Foreign Credential Evaluations, Inc. must receive your official transcripts in a sealed envelope directly from the institution(s) you attended outside the U.S.
Marksheets/transcripts AND diplomas/degree certificates in both the original language and in an official English translation should be mailed to:
FOREIGN CREDENTIAL EVALUATIONS, INC.
1425 Market Boulevard, Suite 530
Roswell, GA 30076
Alternately, your original education documents, including degree certificates, diplomas and marksheets/transcripts can be submitted to the international admissions office of the U.S. university to which you are applying. That office can send an email with scanned copies of the records they have reviewed, stating that the records are recognized by that university as being authentic.
