Degree from Outside the United States
You will need to have your degree transcript evaluated if it is from an institution located outside of the United States in order to establish equivalency with a regionally accredited US degree.
If you are requesting transfer credit or if you are applying to any program within the School of Psychology, you must request a detailed course by course evaluation, including grade point average (GPA) and course level. If you are are applying to a program within the School of Leadership Studies and not requesting transfer credit, you may request the general/basic degree evaluation.
We accept evaluations from the following services:
- International Education Research Foundation (IERF)
- World Education Services (WES)
National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) – You may choose any of the ‘current’ agencies listed
The evaluation can take three weeks or more, and application processes and costs vary between transcript evaluation service agencies. Some agencies have an option to expedite evaluations for an additional fee. You need to provide an original transcript to the evaluation service according to their process, and request that they send the evaluation directly to Fielding. You do not need to send your original transcript to Fielding.
