Common FAQ

Open AllClose All
  What is a credential evaluation?

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.

Acquiring a credential evaluation from ECE will ensure your foreign education is fully understood by colleges, universities, and employers within the U.S.
  Who needs a credential evaluation?

If you're coming to the U.S. from another country and need to convert the academic credentials you earned that country, you'll need a credential evaluation.  This will help colleges, universities, and employers within the U.S. understand your academic credentials and qualifications.
