Electronic versions of academic transcripts must be submitted as part of the online application to NEC. Transcripts should show coursework completed, grades earned to date, and classes in which the student is currently enrolled. PDF files are preferred.

Please do not mail hard copies of transcripts as part of the application process. Obtain an unofficial copy from your school and scan into a PDF file for upload to the online application. Please do not have electronic transcripts sent to NEC via a secure online system used by your school or university. Obtain an unofficial PDF copy of your transcript and upload it into the NEC online application.

Graduate applicants should upload transcripts from all previous undergraduate and graduate study, not just from the most recent program.

All transcripts must be in English. International students whose 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 (www.wes.org) or Educational Credential Evaluators, Inc. (www.ece.org). 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 upload electronic versions of transcripts in English to the online application.

If students are accepted and choose to matriculate at NEC, we will then require official copies of all final transcripts showing graduation dates and degrees received.

NOTE: All materials submitted as part of the application process become the property of NEC and will not be returned.
