Fielding Graduate University is committed to fostering an international campus, and we welcome you to apply!
You will need to have your degree transcript evaluated if it is from an institution located outside of the United States in order to establish equivalency with a regionally accredited US degree, unless your degree program has an established articulation agreement with Fielding .
You will need to request an evaluation that lists each course with grades and a cumulative GPA, generally called a “course by course” evaluation. You need to provide an original transcript to the evaluation service according to their process, and request that they send the evaluation directly to Fielding. Please do not send your original transcript to Fielding.
We accept evaluations from the following agencies, but you may use any current members of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES):
- World Education Services
- SpanTran Pathways
- International Education Research Foundation, Inc.
- Josef Silny & Associates
The evaluation can take three weeks or more, and application processes and costs vary between transcript evaluation service agencies. Some agencies have an option to expedite evaluations for an additional fee.
Fielding is approved to support F-1 student visas, which allow students to live in the US while attending Fielding. For most of our programs you do not need to move to the US for study. Online only programs and half-time programs are not eligible for F-1 student visas. The Registrar’s Office will work with eligible students who are interested in pursuing a student visa.
