TRANSCRIPT EVALUATION APPOINTMENTS
If you have completed courses at another college or university, you must first contact that institution and have them send your official transcripts to LAVC by mail. Shipping and processing of official transcripts is 7-10 business days. Once the transcripts are recieved and processed by Admissions and Records, a counselor must evaluate them in order to determine appropriate course recommendations at LA Valley College. Please do not request for transcripts to be sent if you have not yet applied to the district and obtained a student ID number.

FOREIGN TRANSCRIPT EVALUATION
Students who have completed courses from a accredited university in a foreign Country may be able to apply the course credits toward an Associate degree in LA Valley College or transfer to a University. Courses must first be evaluated by an approved credential evaluation agency.
To have foreign transcript evaluated, students should contact one of the approved credential evaluation agencies and request a detailed equivalency report that includes course title, semester units equivalency, and letter grade student earned. Foreign credits can be accepted by LAVC only after the student has completed 12 units with LA Valley College.
Please note that foreign coursework will NOT satisfy general education requirements for English Composition, U.S. history/Government as well as transfer GE requirements. The transferability of foreign courses will be determined by the transfer institution.
Counselors are also available in satellite offices: SSD (Student Services Annex), EOPS (SSC 2nd Floor), TRiO (SSC 228), STEM (MS 112A), and Cal Works (B14).
