Official transcripts must be submitted to NEC. Transcripts should show coursework completed, grades earned to date, and classes in which the student is currently enrolled. Please do not send multiple copies of the same transcript. Transcripts should be postmarked by December 1.

Most transcripts are submitted directly from schools/institutions and must be in original, sealed envelopes. Official electronic transcripts are only accepted during the admissions process if sent directly by the applicant's school or university via a secure online server. If students are then accepted and choose to matriculate at NEC, we will require an official paper copy of the final transcript showing the graduation date and degree received.

Photocopies, pdfs, internet printouts, and any transcripts not received in the issuing schools' original, sealed envelopes will not be accepted.

All transcripts must be in English. International students whose original transcripts are not issued in English must also provide official translations.

The Admissions Office may require that international applicants have their transcripts evaluated by an organization specializing in foreign credential evaluation, such as World Education Services ( or Educational Credential Evaluators, Inc. ( Students are welcome to contact these transcript evaluation services before applying in order to expedite the process and accurately determine what level of study they are qualified for in the United States. If a transcript evaluation service is used, the student must still have an original transcript sent to NEC in English or in the original language with a notarized translation.
