Official transcripts and diplomas from any college or university outside of the United States must be translated and evaluated, course-by-course, by an independent evaluation service. The service will issue a report equating foreign academic credentials to U.S. degrees, grades, credits and GPA. The service will forward the report to Bastyr University at the applicant's request. There is a charge for this evaluation, which varies depending on which evaluation service is used.The evaluation report must be issued by a NACES (National Association of Credential Evaluation Services) accredited evaluation service. Please visit the NACES website at www.naces.org for a list of accredited members. Below is a list of NACES accredited services that are commonly used by students.For international students applying to the MSN-DPD program or the Dietetic Internship, the services of a foreign degree evaluation agency will be required to validate your academic degree as equivalent to the bachelor's or master's degree conferred by a U.S. regionally-accredited college or university. The summary section of the evaluation report MUST state "From a regionally accredited institution."

International students are not eligible for U.S. federal or state-funded student aid programs but may obtain private loans with a U.S. citizen or resident as a co-signer. Canadian students also have access to the Canadian federal student loan program and most provincial loans.
Documentation of sufficient funding is required for F-1 students because off-campus employment is prohibited by the USCIS during the first year of study. International students are limited to no more than 20 hours a week of on-campus employment while school is in session and may work full-time during vacation periods, as long as they have maintained status and intend to register for the following term.
Bastyr University has a very limited amount of international student employment money available and should not be considered a significant source of income.
