Students who have attended a college or university outside of the U.S. may be eligible for undergraduate transfer credit. A certified evaluation (course-by-course with GPA calculation) by a NACES member organization is used to determine their U.S. equivalency. The Transfer Articulation Unit uses the courses determined by this NACES evaluation for the initial review of transfer credits.

The following steps will guide you to initiate an evaluation request for International coursework.

Important Notes

  • Only use this form for International requests. For domestic schools, use TES
  • All approved equivalencies will be applied on a student-only basis and will not be applied to any other students with the same coursework
  • One course per form
  • Be mindful that the incoming course must have 66% or more of required credits to satisfy a UNLV course equivalency or meet a General Education designation
