Once the evaluation is completed, the student will receive a copy mailed to the address reported on the evaluation form.

If you have completed additional courses you will need to request an updated evaluation by submitting a new Transcript Evaluation/Prerequisite Clearance form and then write "Request Update" in the student comments section of the form.
