What if my transcripts are not in English?
Option 1: Certified Translated Transcripts
Transcripts that are not in English should be submitted together with an official translation. This means that Smartly Institute must receive both a certified copy of your transcript(s) in their original language and notarized translations for each transcript submitted. These notarized translations should be provided from one of the following: the degree-granting institution itself, the Ministry of Education (or another governing body), or a NACES-member translation service (please see below for more information on NACES).
After acceptance, Smartly Institute will contact you to provide details of the document submission process. For more information on transcript requirements, please see our transcript FAQ page. If you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
Option 2: Transcript Evaluation through NACES member organization
If you are unable to provide translated transcripts, an alternative option is to submit an official transcript evaluation from a National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) member. A list of NACES member organizations can be found at http://www.naces.org/members. International applicants are responsible for the selection and management of the academic credential evaluation process and should be mindful of the process in managing the enrollment timeline.
After acceptance, Smartly Institute will contact you to provide details of the document submission process.
Note: the above updated requirements apply to applications submitted on or after September 1st, 2018
