International Admissions – Transcript Evaluation

Applicants transferring credit from universities or colleges outside the U.S. must complete a course-by-course third-party transcript evaluation. Those that have earned a Bachelor’s degree outside the United States and wish to apply for a graduate program should consider having their transcripts evaluated by a certified evaluation company. Below is a list of some evaluation companies.  This is not a comprehensive list of all authorized evaluation companies.  Maryville requires that students use the services of companies that are approved members of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services ( Please note, students transferring into the Nursing program must get a transcript evaluation through CGFNS. All of the companies listed below are current members of NACES.
