San Joaquin Delta College does not evaluate foreign transcripts nor is credit granted for foreign coursework. Students who wish to have foreign coursework recognized for the purpose of meeting prerequisite requirements must have the entire transcript or the individual course evaluated by an outside transcript evaluation service and file a Matriculation Appeal Petition for each course they wish to enroll in.
Matriculation Appeal Petitions should be submitted to the Admissions & Records Service Window, located on the first floor of the DeRicco Student Services Building.
Evaluations of Transcripts from Other Colleges
If you have attended other colleges in the United States, you should request that official transcripts be sent to San Joaquin Delta College's Evaluations Office. Transcripts are not automatically evaluated for acceptance or equivalent coursework. Once the transcripts have been received by Delta, we will notify you and you can request a transcript evaluation the Evaluation Request Form to have them evaluated for acceptance or equivalent coursework.
What Transcripts Do I Need to Provide?
To submit an evaluation request form, you need to submit official transcripts. Official transcripts are those that are either sent directly to San Joaquin Delta College from the previous college or hand delivered in the sealed envelope from that college. Transcripts that have been opened or unofficial transcripts are unacceptable and will not be evaluated.
In addition to transcripts, Course descriptions and/or a college catalog are required for evaluations of transcript for:
- Courses taken at any private college
- Courses taken at any out-of-state college
- Any course taken at a California public college/university for which the course name or number has changed. Example: course was taken as ENG 100 a number of years ago. The college is now using a 4-digit numbering system and the names have changed. We cannot use the current ENGL 1001 even though it appears to be the same. We need the course description for the ENG 100 that was actually taken.
These documents may be obtained by; contacting the appropriate institution's evaluations/advising department directly, by checking the institution's web site, or by checking the College Source web site at: www.collegesource.org.
