Credential Evaluation

If your previous schooling has taken place outside of the United States, Madison College requires a third-party, professional evaluation of the educational credentials earned to show how the foreign educational system aligns with the U.S. educational system. Please see below for a list of recommended services or print a copy (PDF, 17KB). Not all agencies require translation before completing the credential evaluation, and some agencies provide both translation and credential evaluation. Please consult the agency directly for details.

For admission to Madison College, applicants must show proof of having completed at least high/secondary school. A general evaluation that provides only the equivalent grade point average and type of degree is sufficient. A detailed or course-by-course evaluation of each individual class taken in high/secondary school is not necessary, unless the coursework was at an advanced level that may qualify for credit at a post-secondary (college/university) level.

If you have had college/university education beyond secondary schooling, you may have the diploma from the university evaluated instead of the high school diploma, but many agencies will evaluate all educational documents for the same cost. Moreover, ordering a detailed course-by-course evaluation of each individual class completed may be to your advantage, as Madison College may approve some of the courses to transfer to Madison College as credit for prior learning.
