I need a career evaluation for applying to a U.S. university graduate program in computer science. I have an official transcript of all my exams in Italian.

I've found this site spantran that evaluates the career, converts the votes to GPA and translates them in English. But it costs 400$, and it asks 65$ for every page translated. I'm here to get to know some cheaper alternative.

    I'm not clear on what you mean by "career evaluation". Can you clarify?

    But it costs 400$Scam. Admissions committees will want the original records in Italian, not the translations. And your grades/exam scores are not the most important component of your graduate application.

    @JeffE Some universities and employers do, in fact, require that candidates also submit an "evaluation" for foreign transcripts. (examples)

  • I need the evaluation to get the GPA average and the translation. May 28 '14 at 20:21
  • @ff524 Very few, and almost certainly no strong graduate programs, assuming your results are representative. In particular, I found only one (unranked) CS graduate program that requires a foreign transcript evaluation.

The National Association of Credential Evaluation Services is an association of credentials evaluation services in the United States. Of universities that require an evaluation of foreign transcripts, many will also require that this evaluation be done by an NACES member.

The list of NAECS member services is available here; there are currently 19 services on this list. Now it is up to you to find out which offer the kind of evaluation you need, and what is the cost of each service.

(Note that you need only submit an evaluation if the university you are applying to explicitly requires it; most do not. If they do, they may also require that you use a specific service; check with the university about their requirements.)
