Applicants who have completed the equivalent of a baccalaureate degree or higher at an institution outside of the United States are required to provide an official third-party course-by-course evaluation of those academic credentials verifying Grade Point Average (GPA) on a 4.0 scale. The evaluation is an application requirement.
Upon admission official transcripts of all original language academic records for all post-secondary educational endeavors are required. If original documents are issued in a language other than English, certified English translations must also be submitted. A final transcript or diploma showing completion of the undergraduate degree must be submitted prior to starting all SHRS graduate programs.
SHRS requires credential evaluations be provided by a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services. Below is a non-exhaustive list of accreditation services. SHRS neither endorses nor recommends any company over another. The list is in alphabetical order. Visit www.naces.org/members.html for a more extensive list of service providers.
