Credit from Foreign Institutions
William & Mary recognizes that international students may arrive on campus having completed studies equivalent to college courses.
To be eligible for possible transfer credit, all students who have completed a 13-year secondary program or who have attended a university outside of the United States must submit translated syllabi for each thirteenth year or university course with their application for admission. Once these students have been admitted to the College and have declared their intention to enroll, they must submit an official copy, from the testing agency, of the student’s final results/scores to:
The College of William and Mary
Office of the University Registrar
Attn: Transfer Credit Coordinator
PO Box 8795
Williamsburg, VA 23187-8795
Additionally, incoming students with international educational experiences may be required to send their academic credentials to the American Association for Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO) for preliminary determination of transferable credit. If an AACRAO evaluation is required, once AACRAO has determined the amount and subject of transferrable credit, the University Registrar’s Office will determine exactly what credit, if any, will be granted.
Students should [[tlpote, contact the Transfer Credit Coordinator]] (757-221-2823) in the Office of the University Registrar to determine whether they are required to go through AACRAO.
Application forms are available from AACRAO:
One Dupont Circle NW, Suite 520
Washington, DC 22036
The cost of this evaluation is approximately 200.00 US Dollars. Obtaining an external evaluation does not ensure the awarding of credit.
