All applicants to the Graduate School with non-U.S. post secondary credentials must submit an evaluation of their credentials to EMU. Educational Perspectives (EP) is the credential evaluation service that provides evaluations of international educational credentials for applicants to EMU. Order the "Detailed" report (course by course evaluation) for $135.00. The evaluation takes five business days from when the EP application, payment and all of the documents needed for an evaluation, are received at EP, and EP will send the evaluation to you and EMU upon completion. Visit EMU's EP site: www.edperspective.org/emich for details on how to submit the evaluation request and obtain an EP application form. This evaluation will be used to determine if you are eligible for admission to EMU, if your non-U.S. institution is recognized, and what your U.S.-equivalent Grade Point Average (GPA) is.
