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 an outside evaluator such as World Education Services (WES). Please visit this  of approved foreign credential evaluators. Foothill College does not endorse any of these companies but provides their names only as a resource for you.

Once you arrive, please schedule an appointment with an International Academic Counselor to submit your original and evaluated transcript. 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.
