- If you are applying to a college or university, always ask the school if they do their own evaluations or if you need to have the
evaluation done by an outside agency.
- If you are required to send your credentials for evaluation, always send the following:
- Twelfth grade marks statement;
- Marks statements for all years of your undergraduate study and graduate study;
- Degree certificate(s);
- Other marks statements which are awarded by a college or university accredited in your home country.
- Do not send award certificates in debate, music, art, sports, etc.
While you may wish to send these certificates to the school, they are
not included in the evaluation process.
- Do have your academic records translated into English by a professional translation service in order to add validity and
authenticity to your documents.
- Do not send original documents.
- Do be sure that all photocopies are clear, legible and complete.
- If your marks statement does not show the names of the courses you
have taken, please write this information in or provide a syllabus
corresponding to each numbered course (e.g. Math 101 or History 270).
- If you have a post-graduate diploma, make sure you send a letter
from the college or university stating whether the degree is accredited
by AICTE or recognized by the university.
If you are applying for a master’s degree or beyond, you usually only
need a basic evaluation. If you are applying for undergraduate
admission, you generally will need a course-by-course evaluation. Be
sure to check with the school to determine which kind of evaluation is
required. If the school wants a copy of the evaluation sent directly to
them, please indicate this on your evaluation application form and
provide a correct mailing address. We may request for verification of
your documents from your college or university in your home country.
These simple steps will save you valuable time and money.
Be sure that all photocopied documents are clear, legible and complete.
