Checklist for
International Students

You will need these materials in order to apply for admission to D'Youville College.

High School Students

If high school transcripts are not in English, or come from a school outside of the U.S. or Canada, they must be evaluated by an approved transcript evaluation agency.

Transfer Students

All college/university transcripts must be evaluated by an approved transcript evaluation agency.

Transcript Evaluation

International university and high school transcripts require an evaluation by an accredited transcript evaluation service. If you are an international student and would like to apply to D'Youville, please have your credits reviewed by one of the following approved agencies.

All applicants—first-time freshmen, transfer and graduate students—must submit a 'course-by-course' evaluation (or equivalent).

If you are graduating from a secondary school in the United States or Canada, or an accredited international school that grants U.S. diplomas, you are not required to have your transcripts evaluated. Please check with the International Admissions Office for details.

If you are an international student who attended high school (any year) in a country other than the United States, Canada, Great Britain, or Australia, and those whose primary language is one other than English, you are required to demonstrate English proficiency by successfully achieving a minimum score on one of the following examinations.
