Please read on to learn about academic credential requirements for international students seeking to enroll at Northern Vermont University.

Applicants with foreign academic credentials must provide:

  • Academic records in the original language and a certified English translation
  • Official secondary school transcripts and an official leaving certificate or diploma
  • Results of secondary external examinations (such as the West African Exam Council General Certificate of Education), if applicable
  • Official transcripts of any university-level studies already completed
  • For NVU to consider accepting transfer credits from foreign institutions, students must have their post-secondary academic transcripts evaluated by an official foreign credential evaluation service.
  • Students are responsible for paying for the credential evaluation and translation fees.
