Credits from foreign institutions of higher education
will be evaluated on an individual basis. Transcripts must be translated into English prior to being evaluated. It is recommended that students complete an application for evaluation at
www.wes.org. The evaluation will identify each credential, provide the US equivalent, and show US credit and equivalent grades for each subject beyond the secondary level. The cost of the evaluation service is the responsibility of the student applicant.
Note: The University will consider other accredited evaluation organizations who are active members of the "National Association of Credential Evaluation Services" (NACES). For more information regarding the type of evaluation needed, applicants should contact the Admissions or Registrar's Office.
The American Council on Education (ACE) was created in 1942 to recognize the educational value of military training and experience. Since that time ACE has continuously evaluated military schools, correspondence courses and occupations to determine the amount and level of academic credit each should be awarded. UMO recognizes all military service credit with ACE credit recommended credits at the lower/upper level associate/baccalaureate category.
Credits from military training based upon proper documentation of the student's military education, namely from the DD Form-214, and/or JST transcript. Credit is awarded based upon the American Council on Education's recommendations and the needs of the student's program.
