Have a transcript from a country other than the United States? Follow these steps!

  • Out of country official high school transcripts that are in English are accepted.
  • Transcripts that are not in English must be translated to English using a language translation service. For example, DSA Language Services LLC dsalanguageservices.com. Submit an the original high school transcript and original notarized translated documents to Gateway’s Admission Department located at Gateway’s Edgewood Campus.
  • College transcripts must be translated to English and undergo credential/course evaluation. To ensure that you receive credit for your transferrable coursework, we recommend that you purchase a detailed credential evaluation that includes course syllabi. KCTCS approves use of National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES®). From the NACES® website, select either World Education Services, Inc. (WES) or Educational Credential Evaluators, Inc. (ECE) . The evaluated transcripts should be sent directly from the evaluation services to:
