The evaluations of international transfer credits are processed by the Office of Admissions,
once all required documents are submitted (complete transcripts, syllabus/catalog)
during the first enrolled semester. The application of transfer credit toward a degree
at UHD cannot be determined until the transcripts have been evaluated and degree plan
has been processed. If you attended a college or university outside of the United
States, your transcripts must be evaluated by a credential evaluation service
recognized by UHD prior to applying for admission to the university. UHD only accepts
in depth evaluations sometimes called “Full Evaluations” or “Divisional Course Analysis
Divisional Course Analysis builds on the course analysis evaluation of foreign credentials
by providing a statement of equivalency to U.S. education with a more rigorous course
analysis section. It contains course analysis listing subjects in transcript order
including grades, credits and GPA expressed in their corresponding equivalency to
the U.S. educational system. It also shows lower and upper-division, and graduate
level designations. This evaluation of credentials is available only for post-secondary
education. If you are not sure about the type of evaluation needed, please contact
the UHD Office of Admissions before selecting a service or evaluation type.
Remedial and developmental courses are not used in calculating the grade point average.
When applicable, plus and minus grades are transferred as the letter grade (e.g. “C-”
will transfer as “C”; “B+” will transfer as “B”).
If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Admissions at 713-221-8522, firstname.lastname@example.org
