ECE is open for business!

We understand that many plans are uncertain at this time. ECE® evaluation reports are valid for five years.

A credential evaluation compares academic and professional degrees earned in one country to academic and professional degrees earned in another. Colleges, universities, employers, and governments use credential evaluations to evaluate foreign education as part of the admission or hiring process.

Our evaluators have more than 400 years of combined experience to give you the most accurate report based on expert research.

"I just received my evaluation, I couldn't have been happier thanks to ECE. I got nervous and afraid to lose my transcript and degrees, so I called them. The operator was professional and polite, she responded to all my questions. Good luck to everyone and welcome to America."

Fatiha L. (Yelp Review)

"I understand the other reviewers' concerns regarding transparency. I was a bit apprehensive at first, as well. However, personally for me, service was prompt, courteous, and incredibly smooth. They were very accommodating and understanding. (Master's degree from South Korea)

Thanks, ECE! You'll continue to have my business."

Harry S. (Facebook Review)

"My experience was amazing. Because of the evaluation and certification from ECE, I was able to work in my field here in USA. A new horizon of opportunities were opened for me. For this, I recommended ECE as a very good company to perform the "Credential Evaluation" for my friends and relatives who live here in USA. Thank you very much ECE"

"I used their service a while ago to evaluate my transcript from overseas, didn't have any problem with them. After a while, I needed another copy of my evaluated transcript. After I sent my request I realized I needed rush service. So I sent them an email to see what could I do. They replied my email very quickly and clearly. They helped me to place a new order.
It was a good experience overall. I recommend using their service."
