The Office of the Registrar is responsible for evaluating international transcripts and credentials for acceptance and possible transfer credit.
The international students web page provides useful information for members of our global community interested in making Lincoln University the next stop on their educational journey.
The University requires that all students submit original, official transcripts for evaluation. An evaluation of potential transfer credit cannot be completed prior to the receipt of these documents.
It is imperative that your documents be received in sealed, unopened packaging at the time of submission; as a note the University will retain these records and will not return them to you. It is equally important that your records be translated into English by a translation agency; we are unable to accept untranslated documents or documents that have been translated by fellow students, friends or family members.
Although education reports completed by an evaluation service cannot be used as part of the evaluation, the can be considered as English translations of official transcripts.
To reduce potential for rejection we require that all official documents delivered to the University be submitted in sealed, unopened envelope from the transfer institution, the staff here will process your documentation, verify its authenticity and transfer the contents to the appropriate office.
If you intend to request potential transfer credit for direct equivalence courses / coursework, you must submit course descriptions.
These descriptions must be translated into English by a translation agency; appropriate documentation to submit includes but is not limited to:
- Course Syllabus
- Course Outline
- Course Description provided by the transfer institution
Although Lincoln does not provide translation services internally we have included some resources that may help you get your documents translated properly.
