Approved Policy                                                                           October 2003


Graduate Application Requirements for Students with Foreign Academic Credentials

                                                       Effective Term – Winter 2004

Graduate applicants with foreign academic credentials are required to submit the following
application materials for review:

       General foreign transcript evaluation

        The minimum institutional requirement for foreign academic credentials is a general foreign
        transcript evaluation.   The general report provides the university with required degree
        equivalency information as well as verification of the authenticity of original documentation.
        The Office of Graduate Study may recommend specific transfer credit evaluation companies
        for consistency of documentation but will accept any transcript evaluation prepared by a
        NACES (National Association of Credential Evaluation Services) member.

        Individual programs requiring more detailed information may require a course-by-course (or
        detailed) report in place of the general report.

       Official transcripts from foreign universities

        The applicant must submit official transcripts from all universities attended.

       English translation of foreign transcripts

        If the foreign transcript(s) are not prepared in English, an English translation is required.

       Graduate Record Exam (GRE) Scores

        Individual programs may require the GRE exam as an additional application requirement for
        students with foreign educational credentials.

Non-native English speakers must also meet the Oakland University English Language Proficiency
