Transferring Credits from an International Institution
OTC evaluates transfer credits (international transcripts) completed at an international institution on a course-by-course basis.
In order to properly evaluate credits from an international institution, we require students to provide supporting documentation in addition to the translated transcript. Students must have their foreign credits reviewed by an approved National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) agency. Once collected, please forward all information to firstname.lastname@example.org. OTC will then forward documentation to the appropriate Department Head or Dean for evaluation. After which, the college will notify the student of the results. Please allow 2-3 weeks for the evaluation process.
For OTC to consider the coursework, students should translate documentation to English and include:
- Cover letter or email listing the desired degree program and a list of courses being requested for evaluation
- Content courses (tech/allied health), copy of the course-by-course evaluation from a NACES agency along with a course syllabus or course description for the courses the student wishes to have evaluated
- General education courses, copy of the course-by-course evaluation from a NACES agency for the courses the student wishes to have evaluated
- Copy of foreign transcript
Once evaluated, OTC will notify the student of the results by the Transcript Evaluator.
