International Institutions
    Students are advised to submit their record of courses to an
agency recognized by NACES (National Association of
Credential Evaluating Services; www.naces.org) for an
international evaluation. A letter grade (A, B or C) and earned
credit hours must be provided for each course. Course
equivalencies based on terms such as “Pass” or “Satisfactory”
are not acceptable.
 • You may request your CPCC evaluation after your official
    international evaluation report has been received by:
    Student Records, CPCC
    P.O. Box 35009
    Charlotte, NC 28235-5009
 • After you verify your official international evaluation report
    has been received, complete a Request for Transcript
    Evaluation Form, found at www.cpcc.edu/ican/resources-
    1/Transcript%20Evaluation or in person at any CPCC
    campus.
 • Courses completed with a C or higher grade from regionally
    accredited institutions and which match CPCC courses are
    transferable.
 • You will be notified by email when your evaluation has been
    completed.
 • Check your records online at www.cpcc.edu and follow the
    link to My College. Once you have logged in, select the
    Student tab, then under Academic Profile, select Transcript.
    Make sure Curriculum Transcript is highlighted and then
    submit. All transferred courses will appear on your transcript.

    In many cases, students are not required to wait until their
evaluation is completed in order to register for classes. When
prerequisite permissions are necessary, Student Counselors,
Academic Advisors and Division Directors can review students’
transcripts to verify successful completion of the required
prerequisite course(s) and grant course permission. This is not a
substitution for an official evaluation; students should submit
their written requests for evaluation as soon as their transcripts
are received by Student Records at CPCC.
