Transcript Evaluation

If you had schooling in a country other than the U.S. or Canada (except Quebec), you must have your academic record evaluated to certify that coursework completed (and academic degrees earned) are the equivalent to that offered in the United States at a regionally accredited institution. A full course-by-course evaluation must be completed by an approved evaluation agency. The evaluation summary provided directly by the agency will serve as your official transcript, and indicate the number of units and/or degree(s) you have earned. It is not necessary for you to provide an original copy of your academic record to our office. Antioch University Online recommends the use of World Education Services, a not-for-profit organization specializing in foreign credential evaluation. Note: If you previously had your transcript evaluated by another agency, please contact us at [email protected] to determine if the evaluation can be accepted.
