NOTE ON EDUCATIONAL DOCUMENTS:  

The International Education Center will review your educational documents and equate your course work to U.S. grade equivalencies. Generally, applicants are not required to use an outside professional credential evaluation agency, unless we are unable to verify your documents. If required, the international transcript evaluation done by an outside agency must come from an agency which is a member of NACES and must be supported with official transcripts sent directly to Georgia College from the prior institution.

All educational experience must be supported by official documents submitted directly from the appropriate issuing institution(s) to Georgia College listing courses taken (with credits/points or hours per course and grades awarded), educational degrees, certificates, and/or awards received. If documents are in a language other than English, they must include an official (certified or attested) English translation. Supporting documentation must bear the original seal or stamp and the signature of an official of the issuing institution. 

In some instances, Georgia College may accept a photocopy of the original education documentation provided that the document photocopied is certified with an original seal or stamp and original signature of either the issuing institution and designated official or a U.S. Consular or U.S. Educational official outside of the United States. Applicants are encouraged to contact an EducationUSA Advising Center for assistance. Certification with a Notary signature is not sufficient
