International Coursework

Applicants with coursework taken outside the United States should apply far in advance of the stated deadlines of your intended program of study due to the time it will take to process international credentials. If your post-secondary educational history includes coursework from outside the United States, you must submit the following documentation.

  • A course-by-course credential evaluation, with grade point average (GPA) calculation included, for all non-U.S. coursework. UF accepts an evaluation from any member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services.
  • All transcripts and examination certificates of non-U.S. secondary and/or postsecondary coursework in the native language of instruction and a word for word certified, literal (exact) English translation (if applicable). Unofficial transcripts are accepted electronically for the review process, while official transcripts and translations are required upon enrollment.
