International Credit

Transfer of International Credit

Except when the College of Charleston has a formally recognized transfer articulation agreement with another institution, regardless of the student’s citizenship, students with course work from a college/university outside of the United States must submit official transcripts (mark sheets, academic records), with English translations, to a recognized credential evaluation agency for verification and a course-by-course evaluation. In addition students must submit English translations of course descriptions to the College of Charleston. Responsibility for the translation and evaluation of documents in order to meet deadlines, as well as all costs associated with these services, is the responsibility of the student applying for admission. Please be aware that the completion of these requirements may take 2-4 months.

Once the course-by-course evaluation from an external credential evaluation agency, and English translations of course descriptions, are received by the College of Charleston, evaluation of an admitted student’s course work can begin for potential College of Charleston transfer credit.

Specific international admissions criteria and necessary materials, as well as a link to a list of preferred external credential evaluation agencies, is available on-line at http://admissions.cofc.edu/applyingtothecollege/international-students/index.php.
