To receive credits for courses or degrees from institutions outside the U.S., Canada or U.S. territories, students must have academic transcripts evaluated and certified by a National Association of Credential Evaluation Services member organization, which will assess a fee. The official evaluation should be sent directly from the evaluator to Colorado Heights University. Depending on the program, if a student has earned a foreign degree the student will need to request either a general or course-by-course report from the evaluator.

    • Applicants who wish to have prior graduate-level course work considered for transfer must submit an official transcript of the graduate-level courses they have taken.
    • Students who wish to transfer any prerequisite courses should submit baccalaureate-level or graduate-level transcripts that contain evidence of successful completion of equivalent courses.
  • Transcripted courses that are accompanied by official college catalogs, course descriptions or syllabi, in English or English translation, are more likely to be considered for transfer than are courses that have no such supporting documentation.
