Guidelines for International Student Credentials
All applicants educated outside the U.S. are required to have their credentials from those schools evaluated by World Education Services (WES).
To ensure that your evaluation includes all of the information that FIT requires, please note:
FIT's requirements may differ from WES's country-specific requirements.
All schools listed on FIT's application and resume/CV must all be listed on WES's application as well.
For FIT's instructions and requirements go to: www.wes.org/fitgrad.
For questions or problems regarding document submission, please email WES at FIT@wes.org.
ATTENTION: WES evaluations constitute non-binding advisory opinions only.
Where FIT's assessment of any credential(s) differs from that of WES,
FIT makes all final determinations regarding course/grade/credit/GPA equivalencies, and degree equivalencies.
Applicants with three-year bachelor's degrees:
Regardless of the outcome of the WES evaluation, FIT evaluates three-year degrees on a case-by-case basis
as FIT does not generally recognize three year degrees as being equivalent to American four-year baccalaureate degrees.
China Credential Service
Applicants who have attended institutions in China have the option to use the China credential service within the graduate application
to request and submit CHESICC authenticated credentials/transcripts and verifications, degrees, and GPA's.

Applicants do not need to send paper transcripts to FIT.
