Original documents to UMM

Students need to have original transcripts from foreign educational institutions sent directly to UMM’s Admissions Office.

They also need to complete an application for credential evaluation and submit with copies of the requested documents and payment directly to one of the above agencies. Students should request a course-by-course evaluation. The credentialling agency will forward one copy of their evaluation directly to UMM and one to the student.

The Registrar’s Office will award appropriate transfer credit based on the report of the foreign credentialling agency.
