Required Documentation

Credential evaluation report documentation requirements vary from country to country. Please choose your country of education from the list below to determine which documents you'll need for your report.


SJSU Graduate Admissions will accept Final (or Official) and Provisional Evaluations. Any students admitted to SJSU on Provisional Evaluations must submit an Official Evaluation to SJSU by February 1. Therefore, IEE must receive your request for an Official Evaluation by January 15th otherwise expedited processing fees may apply. Please note a $50 revision fee and/or expedited processing charge may apply if documents are not submitted by January 15th.


If your degree is in progress and you submit 7 semesters of work to IEE, please know SJSU requires proof that your degree was completed before Feb 1. Therefore, a Final Evaluation with 8 semesters and a degree certificate/diploma must be completed and submitted to SJSU no later than February 1st. This means you will need to submit your 8th-semester marks and degree certificate/diploma to IEE no later than January 15th.


In some cases, IEE may be prevented from authenticating documents due to school closures. It will be YOUR responsibility to update our office when your school has reopened and request an Official Evaluation.

IEE General Document Requirements

Be certain that you have all the necessary documents before sending your application, as missing documents will delay the processing of your evaluation.

Also, be sure to read the IEE Country-Specific Requirements section (above), as it provides a more detailed description of the required academic records by country of study.

Please note that IEE requires official academic records. Unofficial student copies will not be accepted, even if they are issued by the school.

Please submit the following:

ORIGINAL Transcripts / Mark Sheets / Examination Certificates / Academic Records

indicating courses/subjects, hours of study/units/credits, and grades/marks/examination results, issued in the original language. These must be issued on institutional letterhead and include official signatures and seals. If the hours/units/credits are not included on the academic records, please submit program descriptions/syllabi issued by the institution, where applicable.

ORIGINAL Diplomas / Graduation Certificates / Degree Certificates

issued in the original language (indicating that a degree/qualification has been earned or that a program of study has been completed). If the degree was not earned, please indicate so in writing.

Copy of the title page, abstract, table of contents, and first ten pages of the dissertation for the evaluation of doctoral studies

Please note that if you have postsecondary studies, you are not required to submit academic records for secondary studies. Also, if you have completed graduate studies, the undergraduate academic records are still required.

If you have completed studies in the United States, please submit a copy of the transcript and/or diploma as supporting documentation. Please note, however, that your US studies will not be included in the evaluation, as colleges, universities, and licensing agencies evaluate credentials from the United States according to their individual policies.

Translations

IEE requires certified translations of your documents if they are in a language that is not English. During the application process you will be given an opportunity to order translations from us, or let us know you will provide translations to us from another provider.
