F-1 International Students who wish to transfer to New River Community College must present transcripts to the Admissions and Records Office from all previous schools, including those from non-U.S. colleges or universities. Students interested in having their international courses/experiences applied as transfer credits towards their New River degree must have them translated and/or evaluated by a professional credential evaluation service.
Please note that transcript evaluation does not ensure that credits will transfer to New River following evaluation. All transcripts are thoroughly reviewed by the Admissions and Records Office to determine if course work is applicable to the program at New River.
An official copy of the evaluated transcript should be sent to:
New River Community College
Attn: Admissions & Records
5251 College Drive
Dublin, VA 24084
