Evaluation services provide an advisory opinion about what an individual's foreign educational background represents in U.S. terms, for purposes such as employment, professional licensure and further education. Hartnell College does not endorse, recommend or approve any particular evaluation service, and will make the final determination about the transferability of specific courses.
Students who have completed college or university level courses outside of the United States and are requesting credit at Hartnell College, must submit a Request for Transfer Credit Evaluation after the completion of 6.0 units at Hartnell.
It is the responsibility of the student to provide all required documentation to the Admissions & Records Office.
2. Official Transcript Evaluation. Transcript evaluations must be completed by a Credential Evaluation Service. Reports MUST include course-by-course reports with semester unit equivalencies and letter grades.
3. Detailed Course Descriptions may be required for you to provide for those courses you hope to transfer, or college catalog in English.
