Seeking Transfer Credit


Return to: Applicants With Degrees and Coursework From Non-U.S. Institutions  

Any applicant seeking transfer of credits from an institution outside the United States into a Walden University degree program must have a course-by-course evaluation completed by one of the following two services:

  • The Global Transcript Evaluation (GTE) service offered by Walden University.
  • A credential evaluation service that is a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) http://www.naces.org/members.html.

Applicants seeking transfer of credit and who are interested in utilizing Walden’s GTE service will need to submit the following:

  • A clear and legible copy of his or her academic record in its original language.
  • For completed degrees, a clear and legible copy of his or her diploma in its original language.
  • A professional English translation of his or her academic record and diploma.

Applicants seeking transfer of credit and who choose to have their international credential evaluated by a NACES member must provide the following to the Office of Admissions:

  • An official NACES course-by-course evaluation.
  • A copy of the academic record that was evaluated by the NACES member.

In any circumstances where the Global Transcript Evaluation team is unable to determine the academic level or course credit awarded in relation to US educational standards, applicants will be asked to submit their transcripts to a member of NACES (or their nursing licensure/certification to the Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools (CGFNS)) for evaluation. Applicants must pay the evaluation fee directly to the NACES member or to CGFNS.
