Applicants with Foreign Documents


We accept applications from all countries. Some countries have specific requirements, please see the Specific Countries list. If your country is not listed, then please continue on to other required documents.

**Sacramento State DOES NOT accept evaluations from outside agencies. All evaluations are done on campus and only for applicants that have filed an on-line application and paid the application fee.**

PLEASE NOTE: Applicants who attended foreign institutions are required to submit transcripts one month prior to application deadline, in order to allow time for foreign credential evaluation.

Please use our Request for Academic Records form when requesting your transcripts.

PLEASE NOTE: These instructions are for domestic U.S. applicants (US Citizens, Resident Aliens or H visa) with foreign documents only. Foreign/International students (F or J Visas) must apply through International Admissions. Do NOT fill out the general graduate studies application as it will slow down your application process.
