Equivalency Information

Minimum Qualifications for Faculty and Administrators in California Community Colleges is governed by the California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office. Applicants that do not clearly meet the minimum qualifications as listed as defined by the CCCCO have the option to submit an Equivalency Review Request Form with the job application. If an Equivalency Request form is attached, it must also include a narrative making the argument for each box checked, and any supporting documents.  All documents should be combined into one document before uploading to your application.

Foreign Transcripts

Individuals who have completed college or university course work at an institution in a country other than the United States must obtain a complete evaluation of foreign transcripts, degrees and other relevant documents. A foreign transcript evaluation and the corresponding foreign transcripts are required any time foreign course work is used to meet minimum qualifications and/or salary placement, even if the foreign transcript has previously been accepted by a different college or university in the United States.

The following institutions provide foreign transcript evaluation services and charge a fee. College of the Desert does not promote or approve any of these agencies. This is provided only as a possible source.
