Transferring credit for work already completed is always up to the receiving institution. For credits coming from outside of the US, it is somewhat unclear until the college or university makes their final decision. Most institutions within the US, do not have the expertise to evaluate credits from other countries, and leave the initial evaluation up to an official evaluation agency. The agency makes the recommendation, but the final decision still comes from the school. So there is no guarantee the credits will be accepted based on the evaluation agencies recommendation. For example of one such agency; the most widely used evaluation agency on the eastern coast of the US is the World Education Service (WES) located in New York, New York. First, I would recommend you choose a college or university of interest, and inquire about their transfer credit policy and regulations.
