Client Testimonials

"ECE has been helpful! I joined the National Guard with a higher pay grade and the rank of Specialist because of my college degree from Mexico. They checked and validated the transcript from ECE, and it was all good. Eventually I will use this evaluation for further education."

"Born, raised and educated in Australia, I chose to travel the world once I completed my undergraduate degree.  Some years later, I decided it was time to further my education and found myself in the U.S. I heard horrible things from fellow international students about trying to get degrees "converted" to American equivalents ... thankfully, ECE made it quick, easy and completely painless.  The results were just what I needed."
