In order to apply as a graduate student, applicants must possess the equivalent of a U.S. bachelor's degree.
Graduate Admissions at the University of Idaho uses a variety of sources to determine equivalencies. It is important to note that the list of equivalencies below is not complete, but rather represents the most common credentials we receive from each country.
Diplome d’Ingenieur (3 year, 2nd cycle program)
Licence PLUS Maitrise
Note: equivalents are subject to change without notice.
What to Submit
Clear, legible photocopies of all Diplômes or Attestations de Réussite issued in French, with English Translation, by the institutions attended (e.g. Diplôme de Licence, Diplôme de Maîtrise, Diplôme de Docteur)
Relevé de Notes Annuels (academic transcripts) issued in French, with English Translation, showing all subjects taken and examination results obtained for each year of study.
Do not send a dossier étudiant, as it will not be accepted in place of your relevés de notes annuels.
How to Submit
To be submitted directly from the Registrar of the institution attended.
Note: Credentials are acceptable only when they are issued by, and received from, authorized educational institutions. Some institutions will not send official documents. If this is the case, a professional credential evaluation will be required.
If the awarding institution does not provide mailing options to the US, provide the Transcript Request and Release Authorization Form to your institution. Request the institution to fill out the form and place the form with your documents in an official envelope sealed by the appropriate office and give the sealed envelope to you. You can then mail this to the Graduate Admissions Office. Do not open the envelope or break the official seal.
Credentials are acceptable only when they are issued by, and received from, authorized personnel. Credentials attested by persons outside the authorized office, such as individual professors or external notary publics, will not be accepted.
Precise, word-for-word, English translations are required for all foreign language documents.
The University of Idaho recommends, and reserves the right to require, a professional credential evaluation by an outside, independent party.
