Professional Licensure

Main Content
Due to a Safer at Home order by the governor of Wisconsin, we are sorry to announce that ECE has temporarily suspended operations as of Tuesday, March 24, 2020. We will resume normal activities as soon as it is safe to do so.
If you are planning to apply for an educational credential report from ECE, please do not send us any documents. Documents en route to us via courier services such as FedEx and DHL will be returned to sender. Documents sent via U.S. mail will be held by the post office.  An ECE representative will pick up held mail periodically, but documents will not be processed and will not be sent back to customers. Your documents will be locked and safe in our office until we can return to normal operations.
Our top priority during this time is the health and safety of our employees and community. As soon as we are able to begin normal operations, rest assured that we will be here for you as you continue to pursue your international education, employment, and immigration dreams.

Certain professions in the U.S. may require licensure by a state board before you can practice in the field.  Licensing boards often have an educational requirement for licensure.

If you have studied outside the U.S. and are trying to be licensed, a foreign credential evaluation report may help you meet the educational requirements.

We currently provide reports for all those who are seeking licensure as a dentist or pharmacist, and we provide reports for some states for cosmetology and accounting. If you are seeking professional licensure, we recommend you contact your state board to confirm what type of report may be required.

Please wait while we gather your results.
