We accept transcript evaluations from companies that are current members of National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) or Association of International Credential Evaluators, Inc. (AICE). When you get your transcript evaluated, make sure you ask for:
- A course by course evaluation
- A breakdown of coursework into general education academic areas
- Whether unit values are in semester or quarter units
- What coursework is lower division, upper division, or graduate level
Unofficial Transcripts and Test Scores
Students can submit unofficial transcripts from colleges and universities outside of Los Rios – as well as unofficial test scores – to use for educational planning with a counselor and to meet prerequisites.
If you are submitting unofficial transcripts to meet prerequisites, then review the pre-approved courses lists on the Placement page.
- You must submit transcripts along with the appropriate form. Do not submit unofficial transcripts without the appropriate form.
- You may email the Admissions and Records office to request the form if your course is on the pre-approved list: email@example.com.
