Transcript credentialing services

  • Credentialing services review courses you have taken at a foreign college and match them with relevant college courses in the U.S. so your course credits can be transferred.
  • Transcripts should be evaluated ONLY if you wish to apply credits earned from your previous college experience toward your degree or certificate at Cincinnati State.
  • Transcripts should be translated into English before being sent to a credentialing service.
  • Applicants are responsible for paying all credentialing and translating costs.
