Bridging College Access: Evaluating Foreign Secondary Transcripts

Thursday, September 26, 2019

08:00 AM to 11:00 AM

When educators evaluate foreign secondary credentials with intentionality and consistency, students are able to receive transfer credit for courses taken outside the US, positioning them for success in US secondary schools and in their transition to college. This practice-oriented seminar provides international student advocates with a pragmatic framework for evaluating foreign secondary credentials, including transcripts and national exams. Receive a comparative education toolkit, which includes: real-world case studies, an overview of several international education systems, grading scales, and recommended courses and grade level placement for students based on level of English proficiency and foreign credentials. Learn how the evaluation and placement process at the secondary school impacts the college admission process and explore best practice guidance for working with students who have prior international education experiences.
