Foreign Transcripts
Foothill does not evaluate foreign transcripts or credentials.
If you have taken college or university classes in another country and are interested in receiving credit for them at Foothill, you will need to have your classes evaluated by a specific outside source first. The list of approved foreign credential evaluators is attached. Foothill College does not endorse any of these companies but provides their names only as a resource for you.
Actual determination of Foothill credit for classes taken overseas will occur during an individual appointment with an academic counselor after you arrive on the Foothill campus and present your transcripts together with an evaluated copy. Academic counselors cannot give you any transfer credit decisions before you are accepted and arrive at the Foothill campus.
Important! If you are planning to transfer to a 4-year college or university after completing your studies at Foothill, you must be aware that your next institution will do its own evaluation of your foreign transcript, and may or may not award the same credit as Foothill for the courses you took overseas.
If you are transferring to Foothill from a school or university in the United States, please follow specific transfer procedures.
