Foreign Diploma Requirements

All students must have completed secondary education (high school or equivalent) to be eligible for federal financial aid (Pell Grant/Student Loans). If your diploma is from a foreign country you must:

  1. Have the diploma translated into English.
  2. Have the English version diploma reviewed by a credential evaluator to determine the equivalency to a U.S. diploma.

This list is for your comparison and we do not recommend one agency above another. Evaluators do charge for this service and it can take several weeks, so be sure to start this process early in your enrollment process.
