FOREIGN TRANSCRIPT EVALUATION PROCESS:
Students who have completed courses from an accredited college or university in a foreign country may be able to apply some of the course credits toward an Associate Degree at LA Valley College. Please note that foreign coursework will NOT satisfy general education requirements for English Composition, Oral Communication, U.S. History/Government as well as transfer general education requirements. The transferability of foreign courses can only be determined by the transfer institution.

- Students must request a detailed equivalency report that includes course title, semester units and letter grades earned.
- Send an official evaluation report to the Los Angeles Valley College, C/O Admissions and Records Office, 5800 Fulton Avenue, Valley Glen, CA 91401.
- Complete a General Petition to request credits for foreign coursework.
