Military and International Transcripts

Military Transcripts

Joint Services transcripts are evaluated by Military and Veteran Services.

International Transcripts

Request evaluation of international coursework as early as possible. The process can take a considerable amount of time to complete.

  • Foreign transcripts must be evaluated by an International Evaluation Service.
  • Please do not send NOVA your original international transcript.
  • NOVA only accepts international transcript evaluations directly from World Education Services (WES), the International Education Research Foundation (IERF) , Educational Credential Evaluator (ECE), or Foreign Credentials Services of America (FCSA).
  • NOVA will also accept AACRAO transcript evaluations dated prior to August 2016 and on a case-by-case basis, NACES approved evaluations performed prior to August 2014. Students may only submit one evaluation during their academic career at NOVA.
  • Students must submit their original transcripts to one of these organizations and pay for the course-by- course evaluation.
  • NOVA cannot guarantee the quality or outcome of the evaluations.
  • Once the College receives a copy of the evaluation, appropriate transfer credit will be awarded and posted to the student’s record unless NOVA needs additional information. In some cases, students may need to provide NOVA with more detailed course information before transfer credit can be awarded. Credit for ENG 111 or higher English credit will be awarded only if the student has taken NOVA’s English Placement Test and qualified for ENG 111.
