Welcome Prospective DePaul University Student!

Educational Perspectives is a not-for-profit research organization dedicated to preparing evaluation reports that help non-US educated individuals have their education recognized for further education in the United States.

DePaul University has developed a direct relationship with Educational Perspectives to prepare a written evaluation of your non-US educational credentials. Our evaluation will be an important part of your application for admission to DePaul University. Please carefully review the information below so that you submit a complete evaluation application – this will help us get your evaluation report under way quickly.

Required Documentation

Educational Perspectives requires the following documentation:

  • A completed and signed 'Application for Evaluation of Educational Credentials'. Once you have completed your application, you will need to print it and sign it.
  • Original, official educational credentials for all study completed, beginning with the final year of secondary school.

Note: If you have completed two or more years of university study, you do not need to submit your secondary school credentials for evaluation.

What is an Original, Official Document?

Official credentials are issued in the original language directly by your college or university. Copies must bear the official stamp and/or seal of the institution, as well as the signature of the appropriate official, such as the Dean, Rector, Registrar, Controller of Examinations, or Office of Teaching Affairs. Photo/notarized copies, facsimile/electronic mail transmissions will not be accepted.

Note: Documents sent directly to Educational Perspectives by your college or university will not be returned to you – they become the property of Educational Perspectives.

Applicants from CHINA please review your documentation requirements here.
