CCS Procedure for Transcript Evaluation from Foreign Schools

Transcripts (educational credentials) issued in foreign countries from non-American system institutions and those in languages other than English require special handling. Students who want to receive credit for courses taken from an academic institution outside of the United States must have their transcripts evaluated. Each foreign transcript must be translated into English and then submitted to one of the four companies listed below for evaluation. The decision on what courses, if any, will be accepted by Spokane Falls Community College (SFCC) or Spokane Community College (SCC) will be made after the transcripts have been evaluated by one of these companies.

SFCC and SCC accept evaluations of foreign transcripts ONLY from the following four (4) Academic Evaluations companies:

Students should contact the companies directly for information regarding the evaluation request process and a fee schedule. The official report must be in English and include subject breakdowns, course descriptions, credit value and grades. SFCC and SCC will not require official transcripts if official copies were submitted to the evaluation service. Once completed, the evaluation report should be mailed in a sealed envelope to one of the two following addresses:

Global Education
Spokane Falls Community College
MS 3011, 3410 W Fort George Wright Dr.
Spokane, WA 99224-5288

Global Education 
Spokane Community College
MS 2151, 1810 N Greene St.
Spokane, WA 99217-5399

Credentials evaluators at SFCC and SCC will review the report and courses that are determined to be applicable to the student’s area of study, which will be recorded as transfer credit. A letter outlining the accepted transfer credit will be sent to the student after a graduation application has been completed and turned into the Registration Office by the student.
