Need to pay $145+ to get transcripts 'translated'?
A university is asking me to get my transcripts translated, they are in English, I was in the British system for high school. Bear in mind I am American, not an international student I was just in the British schooling system. I don't know why they aren't doing it themselves or why they're even complicating it so much. No university I have ever applied to has asked me to do this and I've applied to A LOT and all types. It's costing more than $145 to get it translated by their own services or WES. My financial standing isn't good right now, that's why I'm upset over this. I didn't start college this year and will be next year because I couldn't afford to go. So this is very frustrating. Are there any services that do it for less or for free? The counsellor told me to just contact the services for a waiver but let's be honest I probably won't be able to get one because of how complicated they usually make it to get one. And the common app waiver won't apply to this. The issue is this university is one of my top choices, and I have a good chance of getting in so I really don't want to cancel my application over this.
