Credential Evaluations

Obtaining a credential evaluation

In addition to your official transcripts, we require external evaluation of credits for all non-U.S colleges or universities.  Some Canadian schools, International Baccalaureate programs and American high schools abroad do not require a credit evaluation.  Please contact the Admissions Office if you have attended one of the above institutions to see if you qualify for an exception.

Below is a list of the different credential evaluators that you may use. Please select one of the following organizations. You are required to submit all documents (transcripts/certificates etc..) and payments these organizations require to perform the evaluation.

  1. Credential Evaluation Report and Transcripts - Only one credential evaluation is required. 

    1. Education Credential Evaluators (ECE)  This service allows applicants to submit their official educational documents only once--to ECE.  NMU would then receive the verified documents from ECE along with the credential evaluation. Select the "course by course report" ($160)

    2. World Education Service (WES)  Students may elect to order the WES ICAP service.  This service allows applicants to submit their official educational documents only once--to WES. NMU would then receive the verified documents from WES along with the credential evaluation. Select the "course by course report with ICAP" ($205)

    3. Other approved evaluators may be considered if part of NACES
