Sending Official Paper & Electronic Transcripts:

Students are required to submit transcripts from ALL colleges. All transcripts must be official transcripts. In many cases, students are permitted to utilize an unofficial transcript when meeting with a counselor to develop their educational plan. However, an official transcript must be received to clear a degree, certificate, or certify Veteran benefits.

During COVID-19, we have limited access to campus, so the preferred way to submit transcripts is through an e-service. 

If you are submitting your transcripts using an eservice, please be sure they are sent to:

External Transcript Evaluation Process


Evergreen Valley College (EVC) provides an official evaluation of coursework completed at external colleges and universities to support students in achieving their degrees and certificates. The transcript evaluation process determines if courses taken at other schools can be utilized for General Education or graduation requirements. To be eligible for a transcript evaluation request a student must be currently enrolled at Evergreen Valley College. Students must also have completed or registered in 12 semester units at Evergreen Valley College or San Jose City College. Completion time for evaluation requests vary, but will generally be completed within four (4) to six (6) weeks.

Coursework from independent or out-of-state colleges and universities, or coursework taken at any regionally accredited school which predates available catalogs, may require students to provide course descriptions, syllabi or additional catalog information, increasing completion time for an evaluation. Students are notified by email if this is necessary.

Evergreen Valley College uses the California State University General Education (CSU GE) and the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) patterns. Coursework completed at another California Community College (CCC) will be evaluated based on already established general education approvals based on data available on

When evaluating coursework from a California State University (CSU) or University of California (UC) institution, we assess how the course was applied at the home institution and attempt to use it in the same manner at EVC.

When evaluating coursework from a private or out-of-state college or university, we review the coursework as per the rules and regulations for CSU GE and IGETC certification.

Students will receive an email once their evaluation is completed. Approved external transfer credit(s) are posted to the official EVC transcript as a total number of units. Individual courses will not be listed.

If students have completed coursework at another California Community College, they should refer to to see how we will apply coursework toward the EVC degree. We recommend that students see a counselor prior to submitting a transcript evaluation request. Students do not need to wait 4-6 weeks for an evaluation and can use to develop a provisional Education Plan with a counselor. All coursework completed at another CCC will follow approval according to what has been predetermined in based on the year and term the course(s) was completed.

If the student has completed a bachelor's degree or higher from a regionally accredited institution, this coursework will meet the general education and graduation requirements for an EVC degree as long as all other requirements are met per the college catalog.

  • HLC – Higher Learning Commission

Important Information

Evergreen Valley College Admissions and Records Office uses evaluation results to confirm certificate or degree completion, CSU GE or IGETC certification.

Transcripts must be official and list final grades for all courses. Any course with an I, IP, RD will not be included in the evaluation results.

Lower-division associate degree-applicable coursework completed with an A, B, C, D, F, CR or P is reviewed, analyzed, and applied, as appropriate to the EVC requirements. Courses with W, NC or NP notations are not reviewed.

All degree applicable courses that have been completed with an A, B, C, D, or F will be calculated into the student's cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA). Students cannot choose specific courses to be included or excluded from the GPA calculation.

If a student wants to have a course evaluated to meet a major requirement for an EVC degree or certificate, consult a counselor and then the appropriate academic department.

Evergreen Valley College cannot guarantee how external coursework will be applied at a university once a student transfers. Student should refer to the transfer college or university for information on how their coursework will be applied.
