When u get to Texas u go to the Univ u r planning to attend and they will tell you how or which transcript svc to use that will convert ur transcript here in the US. Im not sure what HND elect/elect is but maybe the university will. Good luck

I take it you already have a status in the US/in the US already. If so, some schools evaluate the credentials themselves while some require an external body to do that. Keep in mind that some schools (or evaluation body) would only accept it if the transcript was sent directly to them by your former school and not you.

You need to research the requirements of each school on this matter and also be prepared to write a GRE exam before an admission (depending on the school). Do your research well, start your research from specific schools and ask them questions on these scenarios. Good luck.

I am a US citizen. When I applied for programs (scholarships, summer programs, master's programs etc.), I always requested that several copies of my transcript (individually, signed and sealed) be mailed to me directly. My undergraduate university was notoriously slow at sending transcripts (even if you ordered it 3 weeks in advance!). Sometimes the registrars office/transcript office would not want to mail it to me directly, in which case I mailed to to my parents address, and then my parents sent it to me. You could use your fiance's address.

Keeping extra transcripts on hand allowed me to compete for opportunities that I might not have been able to otherwise (for example, finding out about something 1 week before the deadline). I'm sure you can always get your Nigerian transcripts, but it may take a lot longer once you're in the US.
