Credential evaluation – What is it?

2Generally, elementary and secondary (high) schools can evaluate your child’s education themselves. However, each college and university has its own process for evaluating your previous education. Contact each college or university to find out what their process is.

Before you start to study in USA, you might need to have your educational documents evaluated. If your educational documents are not in English, you may need to get them translated. Some schools may accept documents in French.

Elementary or Secondary School

Generally, publicly-funded schools – both public schools and Catholic schools – can evaluate your child’s education themselves. When you enrol your child, bring your child’s educational documents, such as report cards, with you. Your child may take some tests that help the school determine what they have learned before. The school will place your child into the appropriate grade.

Colleges, Universities and Institutes

Each college, university and institute has its own process for evaluating your previous education and deciding whether to admit you as a student. Some may evaluate your previous education themselves. Others may ask for a report from an evaluation service.
