Students who require evaluation of their transcripts from colleges and/or universities outside LACCD, need to follow the steps below before meeting with a counselor.


  • Apply online to LAVC, and allow the district 3-5 business days to process your application and be assigned a student ID number.
  • Contact all colleges/universities you have previously attended and request that the official transcripts be sent to ​Los Angeles Valley College, C/O Admissions and Records Office, 5800 Fulton Avenue, Valley Glen, CA 91401.   
  • If your name has changed, and the name on your LAVC application is different from the name on the transcripts being sent, please notify your previous college/university and have them indicate this name change before sending the official transcripts. This will help you avoid any delays in processing.

Note: Official transcripts and AP exam scores must be sent directly to Admissions and Records Office.  Hand-carried transcripts/scores are not considered official and will not be accepted.


  • Verify that transcripts have been received and processed by  Admissions and Records Office (allowing at least 7-10 business days from the date you requested transcripts to be sent).


  • To assist a counselor in evaluating your transcripts, please be prepared to provide course descriptions, syllabi, assessment results or other documentation you feel will be helpful in the evaluation process.  It may take more than one session to complete a transcript evaluation process. 


Students who have completed courses from an accredited college or university in a foreign country may be able to apply the course credits toward an Associate Degree in LA Valley College. Courses must first be evaluated by LACCD approved foreign credential evaluation agency.

To have foreign transcript evaluated, students should contact one of the approved foreign credential evaluation agencies and request a detailed equivalency report that includes course title, semester unit’s equivalency, and letter grade student earned. Foreign credits can be accepted by LAVC only after the student has completed 12 units within the LACCD. 

Please note that foreign coursework will NOT satisfy general education requirements for English Composition, Oral Communication, U.S. History/Government as well as transfer GE requirements. The transferability of foreign courses can only be determined by the transfer institution.

In addition to the general Counseling Department, counselors are also available in special programs across the campus such as: CalWORKs, Extended Opportunity Programs and Services, Foster Youth, International Students, Services for Students with Disabilities, TAP/Honors, TRiO, UMOJA/Black Scholars, Dream Resource Center and Veterans.
