Getting ready for credential evaluation

It’s almost that time of year again! Learn more about the credential evaluation process for the MPP, MIA and Executive MPA programmes.

The sun is coming out here in Berlin, and the beginning of the new semester is approaching – which means credential evaluation at the Hertie School is just around the corner. We know that incoming students are eagerly preparing to begin their studies this fall, and that some questions about our credential evaluation process may remain.

If you’re an incoming student, you already submitted digital copies of your university transcripts and diplomas when you initially applied. Now we just need to verify these with your original documents (or official copies). Here’s how it works:

The deadline to submit all documents for verification is 4 September 2020 for MPP, MIA and Executive MPA students. If your university isn’t able to make your official documents available to you on time, do request an official statement from your university confirming that you have indeed completed all requirements for your previous degree. Send this statement to us via any of the options listed above.

If you have any questions about the credential evaluation process, don’t hesitate to reach out to Anita Gutiérrez at gutierrez[at]hertie-school[dot]org and Lorena Ramos ramos[at]hertie-school[dot]org.
