International Transcript Evaluation

Transfer credit may be awarded for course work completed at international colleges and universities that are accredited or approved by the appropriate Ministry of Education or other governmental agency. Follow the steps below to have international course work reviewed for Laurel Ridge credit.

  1. Have your international transcript(s) evaluated by a professional organization or agency that is a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluators or is approved by the Virginia Department of Education. The fee for this evaluation and the time required for completion of the evaluation varies with each agency, and is the responsibility of the student.
  2. Request a course-by-course evaluation. Document-by-document evaluations will not be accepted by Laurel Ridge for transfer credit.
  3. Instruct the evaluation agency to mail an official report directly to:

    Admissions and Records Office
    Laurel Ridge Community College
    Middletown Campus
    173 Skirmisher Lane
    Middletown, VA 22645-1745

International transcripts submitted to Laurel Ridge without a course-by-course evaluation by a qualifying organization or agency will not be reviewed for transfer credit.
