International Credential Evaluation

Students who apply to the University of Illinois at Springfield on or after July 1, 2019, and have international academic records must arrange (at their expense) to have their record(s) evaluated by a National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) member organization. Please refer to our Transcript Evaluation Guide for additional information and for a list of NACES members. All evaluations will typically include certified copies of the documents used to conduct the evaluation. If certified copies of your academic record(s) are not included with the evaluation, you will be responsible for requesting that official documents be sent to UIS from each institution attended, along with an English translation (if the records are in a language other than English).


UIS follows the University of Illinois Residency Regulations. For more information see, Residency Information for the University of Illinois. If you have questions, after reviewing the Requirements and Frequently Asked Questions, contact the Admission department at 217/206-4847.
