Prepare for your successful future with Embry-Riddle

Embry-Riddle is here to help you complete your academic goals. Our team can explain application requirements, answer admissions questions, and provide general guidance all the way to registration and enrollment.

Admissions Requirements

1) Foreign Credential Evaluation

All applicants who have educational experience outside the United States are required to submit a Foreign Credential Evaluation (FCE) that includes an official course-by-course evaluation in English and the cumulative grade-point average.

For individuals applying for admission to an associates or bachelors degrees, the FCE helps to determine if the high school diploma is equivalent to that of a U.S. high school diploma and if the student has completed college-level work while enrolled in high school.

For individuals applying for admission to a master's degree, the FCE helps to determine if the bachelor's degree is equivalent to that of a regionally accredited institution of higher learning in the U.S.

2) Submission of English Language Proficiency Test Scores

Since all instruction at Embry-Riddle Europe takes place in English, students whose primary language is not English need to demonstrate that they have sufficient English skills to succeed in a university program.
