Evaluation Services

Before you pay to have your foreign transcripts evaluated, please contact the Hancock Admissions office to determine if your course work will be accepted. 

Allan Hancock College accepts foreign coursework whose evaluation reports have been certified by NACES® (National Association of Credential Evaluation Services) & AICE® (Association of International Credential Evaluators). Completed coursework will be considered for lower-division unit credit only if the foreign institution is listed in the American Council on Education (ACE) Book.

If you are submitting COLLEGE/UNIVERSITY transcripts, make sure that the evaluation is "Detailed or Comprehensive" and that it include the following items:

  1. Name of the Institution, dates attended, degrees earned, and graduation dates
  2. Course/Subject Level Identification (lower and upper division, etc.)
  3. Overall Grade Point Average
  4. List the semester unit value and grade equivalencies
  • The official transcript must be mailed to: Allan Hancock College, Attn: Transcript Evaluator, 800 S. College Drive, Santa Maria, CA 93454
  • F-1 International Students: You must submit an evaluation that verifies your high school transcript is equivalent to the completion of a U.S. high school diploma.
