Every year, students from around the world join our passionate, spirit-empowered community to follow their callings and pursue their goals. We have had students from Austria, England, Canada, Vietnam, Trinidad and Tobago, Sweden, and Hong Kong, to name a few.
2. Records of Previous Study
Complete credentials from all high schools, home schools, secondary schools, colleges, universities, normal schools or technical schools attended must be submitted. These credentials should indicate the certification, degree or diploma earned (if any), a listing of all subjects studied and the grades or letters or marks that were achieved in examinations. If these documents are in a language other than English, it will be necessary for all documents to be accompanied by an official translation into English. All international transcripts must be properly formatted and translated to reflect the U.S. grading equivalent in order for us to properly review your file for admission.
Below you will find a few resources for different agencies that work with international students to get their transcripts formatted and translated properly:
