CCS Procedure for Transcript Evaluation from Foreign Schools

Transcripts (educational credentials) issued in foreign countries from non-American system institutions and those in languages other than English require special handling. Students who want to receive credit for courses taken from an academic institution outside of the United States must have their transcripts evaluated. The decision on what courses will be accepted by Spokane Falls Community College (SFCC) or Spokane Community College (SCC) will be made after the transcripts have been evaluated.

The Community Colleges of Spokane (SCC/SFCC) accepts any foreign credential evaluator that is a CURRENT member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES). For a full list of approved evaluators and their contact information/website, please visit

The official report must be in English and include subject breakdowns, course descriptions, credit value and grades. SFCC and SCC will not require official transcripts if official copies were submitted to the evaluation service.

Submit the official report (physical or electronic) to the appropriate Transcripts Office (either SCC or SFCC):

Spokane Community College (SCC):

SCC Transcripts Office
1810 N. Green St., MS 2151
Spokane, WA 99217-5399

Spokane Falls Community College (SFCC):

SFCC Transcripts Office
3410 W. Whistalks Way, MS 3011
Spokane, WA 99224-5288

Credentials evaluators at SFCC and SCC will review the report and courses that are determined to be applicable to the student’s area of study, which will be recorded as transfer credit. A letter outlining the accepted transfer credit will be sent to the student after a graduation application has been completed and turned into the Registration Office by the student.
