San Joaquin Delta College does not evaluate foreign transcripts nor is credit granted for foreign coursework.
Students with a degree (AA/AS, BA/BS or higher) from a school outside the United States must have their foreign transcript evaluated by a National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) approved independent agency (evaluation must be in a sealed envelope from the agency). The evaluation must specify equivalency to an AA/AS or a BA/BS degree or higher from a U.S. regionally accredited college.
The NACES evaluation will be used ONLY to award points as part of ADN admission criteria.
