Unofficial International Credential Evaluation Request

UW Bothell provides unofficial international credential evaluations* to help prospective students, who have attended secondary or post-secondary institutions outside the U.S., plan how their education may be applied toward UW Bothell admission and degree requirements.

*Note: The unofficial credential evaluation does not guarantee an admission offer or transfer credits and cannot be used for any other purposes or institutions including UW Seattle/Tacoma -- this is a planning tool only.

Steps to request an Unofficial International Credential Evaluation

  1. Gather the following document(s) – Documents must be in English:
    • Prospective First Year Student
      • Transcript(s) from each secondary institution attended (9 – 12th grade)
    • Prospective Transfer/Post-baccalaureate Student
      • Transcript(s) from each post-secondary institution attended (Note: Include U.S. post-secondary transcripts, if applicable)
      • Diploma, if applicable
      • Course description/syllabus for each course taken outside the U.S. that you believe fulfills a program prerequisite, if applicable
  2. Complete the Request for an Unofficial International Credential Evaluation form
  3. Email all the above document(s) together to

Next steps

  1. Document review will not begin until all documents are received by the Office of Admissions via email
  2. Allow 5-10 business days from the date documents are received in the Office of Admissions
  3. A UW Bothell Admissions Advisor will email you with results and further academic advising

Helpful Tips

  • Carefully follow the above steps to avoid delaying your results.
  • Make sure your documents are complete, clear, and legible.
  • Transcripts must show: all subjects taken, grades received for each subject, and for each year you were in the program/institution.
  • Do not submit third party evaluations (such as FIS or WES). These are not transcripts and will not be accepted.
