When transcripts are initially received, from currently-enrolled students, they are reviewed to determine the number of units that will be accepted and applied toward degree & certificate goals, and will also be incorporated into the overall Grade Point Average.
A course-by-course evaluation to award course equivalencies, and to determine the fulfillment of degree and/or certificate requirements, must be initiated by the Counseling Office. See How To Request a Transcript Evaluation? for more information.

Cuyamaca College's procedures for the evaluation of foreign transcript:
We must receive a detailed evaluation report with subject breakdowns, course descriptions and grades from the official foreign transcripts. The official report must be in English and in a sealed envelope.
The official report will be reviewed by the Evaluations Office regarding the possible
clearing of general education courses for graduation.
English and speech courses on any evaluation report will be awarded elective credit only.
Courses will only be used to satisfy major requirements with the approval of the department on a Modification
of Major form.
Courses will not be used for General Education Breadth or IGETC certifications.
Official foreign transcripts will not be required by Cuyamaca College since the official transcripts are submitted to the evaluation service.
