A transcript evaluation is required from all applicants who attended or completed their bachelor’s and /or master’s degree at an institution outside of the United States. The evaluation is not an English translation of the marksheets, but a separate document completed by an evaluation service which shows that the degree you’ve received or are pursuing outside the U.S. is equivalent to a U.S. bachelor's degree or U.S. Master’s degree.
We accept evaluations from:
Educational Credential Evaluators, INC. (ECE)
Request a General Evaluation with Grade Average, unless you are applying to the Quinlan School of Business. Applicants for these programs must request a Course by Course evaluation.
Request a General Report, unless you are applying to the Quinlan School of Business. Applicants for these programs must request a Detailed Report.
Loyola University Chicago does not accept transcript evaluations from World Education Services (WES.) We only accept evaluations from either ECE or Educational Perspectives.
This requirement is automatically waived for applicants meeting one of the following qualifications:
- U.S. bachelor’s degree in progress or conferred
- U.S. master’s degree conferred
*Please note: In addition to the transcript evaluation, you will be required to submit official copies of your transcripts as well. You have the option of requesting that your schools send them to either firstname.lastname@example.org or our mailing address, noted above, but it may be more convenient for you to request either ECE or Educational Perspectives to send the transcript along with your transcript evaluation. Transcripts received from ECE or Educational Perspectives are considered official.
Unless the above mentioned qualifications for a waiver apply to you, both the official English language proficiency test scores and official transcript evaluation must be received before you can be considered for admission, per University policy.
