Foreign Educational Records Evaluations

Programs that review the academic records of individuals who received their education in another country and issue a report which certifies educational equivalency. Evaluations can be made on a document-by-document or course-by-course basis and are useful for gaining admission and transferring academic credit to an accredited college or university, supporting an employment application, obtaining professional licensing or certification or strengthening an immigration application. Most programs can also provide professional translations of official transcripts, diplomas and certificates that are generally submitted in their original language.
