Silny & Associates, Inc., (www.jsilny.com) or World Education Services, (www.wes.org).
Important: If you are applying for a degree in Education, please check with the Armstrong College of Education and/or the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (GaPSC) regarding acceptable international evaluation agencies. The GaPSC publishes a list of their own acceptable evaluation agencies. It is the student responsibility to ensure that your evaluation agency is acceptable to BOTH the GaPSC and Armstrong Graduate Studies.
: : This evaluation must state that you have the minimum equivalency of a four year U.S. Bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution. If your evaluation does not state that you have the equivalent of a minimum of a 4 year U.S. Bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution, then you will not be eligible to apply to Graduate Studies, and your paperwork will be referred to our Undergraduate Admissions Office. Neither Armstrong nor Graduate Studies will act as an intermediary between a student and the evaluation agency.
Submit two official transcripts in a sealed envelope from each college or university attended. (see above evaluation requirement)
