If you have attended a foreign educational institution (high school, college or university), your foreign transcripts must be evaluated by an evaluation company specializing in foreign credentials. Whether you are an international or domestic student, these third-party evaluations are required for the courses to be recognized as equivalent to a U.S. high school, baccalaureate or graduate level work. Fresno Pacific University recognizes the four evaluation services listed below.

Please note: Each company has varying requirements, fees schedules, and documentation requirements based on the type of institution attended and the location of campus. Please consult the evaluation services’ website to confirm the specific documentation and other requirements needed before submitting your request.

When requesting evaluation of foreign transcripts, please remember the following:

FPU Requirements

  • Baccalaureate programs: A certified English translation and a detailed course-by-course evaluation report of the candidate’s transcripts by one of the agencies approved by FPU
  • Graduate/Seminary programs: A certified English translation and evaluation of the candidate’s transcripts by one of the agencies approved by FPU that verifies that the candidate holds a bachelor’s (or Master’s) degree that is equivalent to a degree granted by a regionally accredited college or university. When ordering an evaluation, the candidate must request a Course-by-Course Report rather than a Document (degree) Report to verify their GPA for FPU admissions and programmatic requirements. The Document (degree) Report is included in the Course-by-Course Report.
