Foreign Credit Evaluation

Any student (permanent resident, green card holder, U.S. citizen, or student seeking or currently on a visa) with overseas or foreign credit, will need to have these credits evaluated. Foreign credit evaluations are required to determine a GPA, as well as the U.S. equivalent of credit hours and the degree earned in the home country, if applicable. The evaluation will assist the Office of Admissions in determining if the degree the student holds in their home country fulfills the requirement for the program to which they are applying.

Official evaluations must be submitted to Benedictine University’s Office of Admissions. In order for an evaluation to be considered official, it must be in the original sealed envelope from the evaluating agency. Benedictine University recommends students have one report mailed directly to Benedictine University from the agency and at least one other report mailed to them for personal records.

Benedictine University will take official foreign credit evaluations from Educational Perspectives (EP), Educational Credential Evaluators (ECE) or World Education Services (WES).

Undergraduate candidates should request a high school and university-level “Course by Course” evaluation of credit. Graduate candidates may request a “Course by Course” evaluation of credit. An official evaluation must be sent directly from ECE, EP or WES to Benedictine University. For more information, please contact your admissions representative.
