    Official Transcripts

    Applicants are required to submit official transcripts from all high schools and colleges attended showing a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale.

    • High school students and/or students who have earned less than 24 college units must submit an official high school transcript as well as official transcripts from all colleges attended that should be considered for transfer credit.

    • Students who have earned 24 or more college units must submit an official high school graduation date, as well as official transcripts from all colleges attended that should be considered for transfer credit.

    Foreign Transcript Policy

    Students who previously attended schools outside of the United States may be able to show proof of official transcript documents by providing either of the following:

    Official Transcript and internal review by designated Alliant staff.

    Third Party Review: A student may request an official evaluation of schoolwork which will be sent directly from a credible transcript evaluation service to the University. The evaluation must indicate that the document was based on an official educational record in order to be considered for transcript intake.**

    ** Students enrolling in Teacher Education programs must submit transcripts through the pre-approved entities listed on the California Commission of Teacher Credentialing portal. Alliant’s internal review is not sufficient for entry into these programs.

    Note: this policy does not pertain to potential transcript evaluation for transfer credit purposes.

    Degree Requirements for Foreign Students Enrolling in California Teaching Credential Programs

    California teaching credential program applicants whose degree is from outside the U.S. must have their transcripts evaluated prior to being admitted to the Alliant International University teaching credential program.
