Credit Evaluation for International Students

Listed below are the companies that can evaluate your international credentials. All are independent and not affiliated with UMUC.

  • Follow the specific instructions of the agency
  • Include full payment as instructed by the agency
  • Mail completed forms and payment directly to the agency—not to UMUC.

For transfer credit consideration a course-by-course evaluation should be submitted. Please note that additional information needed for further research, such as a course syllabus may be requested.

UMUC reserves the right to determine acceptability and/or placement of international academic credit. Evaluation by an international evaluation agency does not guarantee acceptance or use in the UMUC degree.
