You may request a general evaluation. You must use an approved evaluation service such as Educational Credential Evaluators (ECE), World Education Services (WES), or SpanTran (Using this HFC customized Application).

Transferring College Credit
Earn General Credit: For students transferring college credit(s) from an international college, a course by course evaluation is required to evaluate the credit(s) as equivalent to HFC general college credit(s). This will include the course name, the equivalent U.S. credit(s), and the equivalent U.S. grade.
Earn Specific Credit: For students who want to earn specific course credit(s) for a course offered at HFC, a course description in addition to the course by course evaluation is necessary to evaluate the transferred credit as equivalent to a specific HFC courses.
The description may be sent separately from the official evaluation if the evaluation service does not provide such a service. For example, you may be able to get a description of the course being transferred from the transferring college or university’s website, catalog, or course syllabi.
NOTE: "Official" means it is sent directly from the evaluation service to HFC.
Translated evaluations should be mailed to:
