Foreign Transcript Evaluation

    • A foreign transcripts evaluation process is available for new middle and high school students entering the Clark County School District (CCSD) from foreign countries. Foreign transcript evaluations assist school registrars and counselors in establishing appropriate grade-level placement, determining equivalent CCSD credits, and assigning the most suitable student schedule to facilitate graduation.
    • Note: This service does not apply to foreign exchange students or students studying abroad in schools sponsored by the Department of Defense Education Activity agency.
