International Transfer Students
As an international student, Colorado Technical University recognizes that you may have previously completed courses outside of the United States. You are able to submit your previous transcripts for review to know if eligible completed courses can be used towards college credit at CTU. The Registrar’s office will ultimately verify and/or certify the institutions’ eligibility for transfer credit or degree equivalency following submission of official transcripts.
An official transcript is one that has been received at CTU directly from your college or university. It must have your school’s stamped seal, date, Registrar’s signature and arrive to CTU in a sealed envelope. Contact your school’s Registrar for more information.
Several transcript evaluation services are available to students. Acceptable evaluations may only come from evaluation services that are a member of NACES (National Association of Credential Evaluation Services, Inc.). CTU will consider evaluations and/or recommendations directly from AACRAO (American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers). Contact the Registrar’s Office for a listing of such organizations. Students are responsible for any applicable fees.
International institutions must be licensed or officially recognized by the Education Department or Ministry of the country where the institution is in operation to be eligible for transfer of credit or degree status. International students enrolled at CTU are required to have on file within one session of their program start date an evaluation from an approved credential evaluation service for all foreign educational credentials previously earned. This is required for all transcripts, including transcripts from international secondary schools, if provided, and/or institutions of higher education.
Transfer credit is evaluated on an individual basis. Not all credits are eligible to transfer. See the University Catalog for transfer credit policies.
