7. Transcript Evaluations and Translations
Transcripts from schools abroad require a course-by-course evaluation—with grade and credit equivalents—by a member service of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (such as Josef Silny & Associates, Inc.). Transcripts provided in a language other than English require a professional certified translation. Translations and evaluations supplement, but do not replace, the original documents.
Disability Accommodation in Admission
In the case of applicants with disabilities, the College will grant reasonable substitution or modification of any admission requirement pursuant to Florida Board of Governors Regulation 6.018 where the Dean of Enrollment Services determines, based on evidence submitted by the applicant and through consultation with the College’s Disabilities Services Coordinator, that the failure of the applicant to meet the requirement is due to his or her disability, and does not constitute a fundamental alteration in the nature of the College’s academic program.
New College will consider this information within the following guidelines: (1) documentation regarding the disability will need to be provided on a voluntary basis, (2) all information will be kept confidential, (3) refusal to provide information will not subject the applicant to adverse treatment, and (4) information will only be used in conjunction with the College’s voluntary efforts to overcome the effects of conditions that may have resulted in limited participation of persons with disabilities.

If you have approved formal status through DACA, provide proof of your DACA status along with your application. Financial statement information will not be required.
