STUDENT-ATHLETES: INCRED CAN SPEED THE ELIGIBILITY DETERMINATION PROCESS, TOO!

 

In addition to the admissions process, all first-time NAIA student-athletes must receive an NAIA Eligibility Center decision to play in the NAIA. The processes are separate but obtaining an InCred evaluation before your eligibility decision can give your school advanced insight into factors that can affect your eligibility. Plus, documents needed for InCred are submitted electronically, which expedites the submission process. Records sent to InCred can also be used for eligibility decisions through the NAIA Eligibility Center.

 

 

INCRED FAQS

 

A credential evaluation assists students, admissions officers, registrars and other university staff in determining how international education compares with the U.S. system for the purpose of admissions and conversion of credits and grades. At InCred, our ongoing research along with our partnership with AACRAO IES, enables students’ credential evaluations to be issued promptly and with the highest level of expertise.
A Course-By-Course Evaluation is for any student who has attended university/post-secondary schooling or for students who wish to earn university-level credit for work done while in high school (i.e. A-levels). A Course-by-Course Evaluation includes a Basic Evaluation in addition to a detailed list of courses completed, credits, and grades earned with InCred-recommended U.S. equivalents.

A Basic Evaluation is for students who need only their high school records evaluated. The Basic Evaluation provides information about degree comparability, grade conversion, and other pertinent details. If a student purchases the Basic Evaluation, and it is determined that he or she has advanced-standing credit available, then the evaluation will note this but will not provide course-by-course credit details. For a breakdown of recommended credit per course, the student will need to pay the difference to purchase a Course-by-Course evaluation.
An NAIA Eligibility Center decision determines eligibility to play in the NAIA but may not contain the elements that are required for admission into NAIA schools or for the conversion of credits. The InCred evaluation can occur in advance of the eligibility decision, giving the school advanced insight into factors that can affect international students’ eligibility.
Required records vary by country. Do not make assumptions about what records are required. Sending incorrect records will delay the process. Refer to InCred Documents Required by Country to determine what is needed.
Translations do not need to be done by expensive, certified translation companies. That said, we do require accurate, word-for-word translations. Anyone who is proficient in both the original language and English is able to complete the translation. If a translation is found to be inaccurate, a certified translation may be required.
InCred Evaluations allows students to submit their records electronically to help expedite the review process. Records need to be in PDF or MS Word formats and should be uploaded upon registering with InCred. In some cases, additional information or records may be requested in a manner other than electronic form. In that case, students should follow the instructions outlined by the reviewer. If you have already registered and need to submit additional records, please contact us at InCred@naia.org.
All students who plan to complete in the NAIA must receive an eligibility decison from PlayNAIA.org. You can recive your InCred evaluation at any point during the eligibility review process.
It is InCred’s goal to provide quality credential evaluation in a reasonable time frame. In most instances, evaluations will be completed within 10 business days of receiving a complete file (including payment, academic history information, and required academic records). Some evaluations may take longer if the records need to be verified or if there is suspicion that the record may have been altered or changed.
InCred does not offer an expedited service at this time.
Included in the InCred evaluation fee is the ability to select up to 2 institutions to receive the evaluation through email or through the mail. Information about who to send records to must be provided when the initial InCred application is completed. Additional recipients for InCred Evaluations will cost $11.00 each. InCred Evaluations are not faxed.
If you are a student who is still enrolled in university, but you have completed at least one previous semester, you can have your current, in-progress records sent. You will receive an in-progress evaluation. An updated evaluation can then be issued once we receive your final transcript. There may be an additional cost associated with receiving an updated evaluation.
If a student reports only a partial academic history on the initial InCred application, but then wishes to have more records evaluated, then a new credential evaluation will need to be purchased in full.
Check your InCred profile for all updates related to your InCred Evaluation. You will need to sign in with your user name and password. Your profile will reflect an updatd statuse when your records are completed, when your evaluation is assigned an evaluator, and then when your InCred Evaluation is completed.
Please contact us if you disagree with the information in your report. If there has been an error, it can be corrected at no additional charge. If no error is found, there is a $50 re-evaluation request fee.
InCred registration is non-refundable once the student’s case has begun processing by InCred staff. Processing includes notification of needed records, communications with institutions on the student’s behalf, receipt of records and/or any communications with the student regarding their evaluation.
