USC Office of Degree Progress

Prior Degree from An International Institution

All graduate students must supply verification that they have been awarded a bachelor’s level degree from an accredited institution in the United States or an equivalent degree from an institution outside of the United States.

IF YOU HAVE RECEIVED A DEGREE FROM AN INSTITUTION OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED STATES AND ARE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE DEGREE VERIFICATION, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS:

INTERNATIONAL PRIOR DEGREE VERIFICATION:
The Degree Progress office recognizes the International Education Research Foundation (IERF) as a provider of verifications of prior international degrees. Details about their services, including application forms, fees, and required documents are available at www.ierf.org/usc.

If you are admitted to an off-campus program, it is strongly recommended that you initiate the verification process directly with IERF as soon as all of your credentials are available.

Please start the process as soon as possible to avoid registration delays.

The Degree Progress office no longer forwards documents to IERF.  You will need to arrange shipping through the USPS, FedEx, DHL, UPS, etc.  Opting for a level of service that provides a tracking number is strongly recommended.
