     » Course by Course Evaluation with GPA of your university/college transcript(s)

Once you have graduated, you may return to the agencies website, apply for an evaluation upgrade, send the agency all required documents, and again select Rowan University as your recipient.The agency will then update their existing evaluation report and forward the revised copy to Rowan electronically. Please note that we do not wait for the final revised version of your report to make an admission decision.
