Credential Evaluation guide
As part of the admission process to Campbellsville University, every student must prove their eligibility to enroll in classes by submitting transcripts from their high school and/or their previously attended colleges or universities.
Transcripts are official documents that list all coursework completed at the high school, college or university you have attended.
There are two types of transcripts:
Since most international students have attended high school or college in their home country the transcripts may be in another language or have a different grading scale than what is commonly used in the United States. Therefore, these transcripts must be evaluated and interpreted in order for Campbellsville University to prove the student’s eligibility to be enrolled in class.
World Education Services or WES is a company that evaluates transcripts for universities such as Campbellsville University. A WES evaluation will provide you with the U.S. academic equivalents for your credentials and allow you to pursue further education in the U.S.
WES offers two types of evaluations:
ESL: WES must be completed and received by Admissions BEFORE you can be accepted into undergraduate or graduate studies. Remember, you only have 60 days to be accepted after you complete ESL and WES takes 2 weeks once they receive your documents.
Undergraduate: WES must be received by Admissions before your first semester is completed, otherwise you cannot register classes your second semester.
Graduate: WES must be received by Admissions before you can be accepted.
