International Admissions

An international student is defined as any non-United States citizen intending to study at sites located outside the United States, students who live outside of the United States and are enrolled through Embry-Riddle Worldwide Online, as well as non-residents and non-immigrants planning to study in the United States. This school is authorized under federal law to enroll non-immigrant students.

International applicants must submit the application for admission 90 days prior to their intended term start date. The following items are also required.

Foreign Credential Evaluation

All undergraduate and graduate applicants who have educational experience outside the United States are required to provide an official course-by-course evaluation in English, that includes the cumulative grade-point average, unless specifically exempted through a qualifying ERAU program. A copy of the foreign transcript must accompany the official credit evaluation. The evaluation must be certified by one of the Foreign Credential Evaluation Services (FCE) approved by Embry-Riddle. A fee is charged for the translation service and must be paid by the applicant directly to the FCE.

If a student has graduate-level work (either transfer or advanced standing) that is indicated on the foreign credential evaluation as meeting the requirements for an undergraduate degree, it will not be reviewed for applicability toward an ERAU graduate degree.

Educational systems differ country by country. The following services are versed in providing a comparison of a country’s education system to the system in the United States. This comparison includes education levels, credits, and grades.

The report is considered official only if mailed from the agency directly to ERAU. We prefer all applicants use the foreign credential evaluation services provided by IEE (International Education Evaluation). We will also accept evaluations from the following agencies: ACEI, ECE, IERF, Josef Silny & Associates, SpanTran, and World Education Services.

Admissions also reserves the right to accept foreign credential evaluations from current members of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES), or Association of International Credential Evaluators (AICE)
