Transcripts and grades from abroad

Foreign transcripts for Vanderbilt students studying on pre-approved programs can take up to 4 months to arrive to our office after the end of your program (especially from South America). Feel free to inquire with our office as to their status, but please be patient. Once these are received, your academic record will be updated with your coursework, and you will be able to see these credits under the "Academic External" tab of your YES record.

Most of GEO's partners will automatically send your transcript to us, but some Vanderbilt students studying on GEO programs will need to specifically request that a transcript be sent to our office. If your program provider asks for the address to which your transcript should be sent, please provide this address:

Vanderbilt University
Office of the University Registrar
International Curriculum and Credentials Analyst
PMB 407701
Nashville, TN  37240-7701
SECURE FAX:  615-343-7709

Non-Vanderbilt students on Vanderbilt programs (Vanderbilt-in-France) will need to request their transcripts from the Vanderbilt University Registrar. Please check with your home university for the address where the Vanderbilt Registrar should send your transcript. Please note that the Global Education Office cannot request transcripts on your behalf.

If you are a Vanderbilt student studying on a non-Vanderbilt program (that is, a program that is not coordinated through the Global Education Office), you will need to instruct your program provider to send your transcript to the registrar of your college at Vanderbilt. More information can be found here.

Program evaluations

All students will have the opportunity to evaluate their time abroad. A link to an online survey will be mailed to returned students after their time abroad. We strongly encourage all students to complete a program evaluation so that GEO may improve its services and program offerings. If you have questions about the program evaluation, please email GEO.

When contacting our office, please always include your name, host program, and term abroad in correspondence with our office. Also include course titles when following up on a course evaluation request.
