Transcripts and Previous College Credit

Students who have previously attended high school and college outside the United States will need to contact SpanTran Evaluation Services to have their transcripts translated and evaluated for academic transfer. Students must designate NEO (Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College) as the recipient of the finished evaluated transcripts so that the school registrar is notified of SpanTran account creation and status. Evaluated transcripts sent directly to students will NOT be accepted. The cost of the service is the responsibility of the student. Go to (SpanTran.com) for additional information.

Submitted High School transcripts MUST include a date of graduation. If your graduation date does not appear on your transcript you will need to get a letter from your high school on official letter head and signed by a school official that states your date of graduation in the Month/Date/Year (MM/DD/YYYY) format.

NOTE: An I-20 document will NOT be sent by NEO until transcripts have been submitted and a verifiable account created with SpanTran.
