Educational credentials in a language other than English applicants need to provide official transcripts of university work sent along with any external examination certificates.  In addition, an official document-by-document evaluation and a course-by-course evaluation report is needed which includes a GPA.

Applicants who have some credits from outside of the United States higher education institutions must submit the following educational documents for evaluation: a) English translations from a recognized source; b) the official transcript and examination certificates. All Transcript should include the final grades and GPA in order to receive an appropriate evaluation for course equivalency.
