Pursuing further education, immigrating to or getting a job in the United States of America requires evaluation of your foreign credentials by a reputed credential evaluation agency. These firms are independent private entities that formally accessibility your foreign education in terms of an US associate, bachelor's, master's or doctorate degree.

As there are various reasons for evaluating foreign credentials, the reports prepared vary. Students from a foreign land applying for admission to universities or colleges in the United States need their transcripts evaluated. Whereas people looking at immigrating just need a document evaluation or an scholarly education and work experience evaluation report.

Having Your Transcripts Evaluated

International students seeking admission to universities or colleges are advised to opt for course by course evaluation reports. These reports are detailed to an extent one can imagine. In addition to the US equivalence, a course-by-course evaluation report lists subjects, US credit hours along with US grades. A Grade point average is calculated based on the above listed particulars.

Why would one need one these course by course evaluation reports?

Well, detailed comparison between the education systems of two countries help colleges & universities determine eligibility of a student for admission to one of the various degree programs they offer. On the other hand, it helps in granting transfer credits for courses currently completed by the student. This definitely helps students not unnecessarily do it again courses.

Now, when we talk about setting down in the United States, the rules differ. Immigrating would need a visa issued by the United States Citizenship Services (USCIS). All visa applicants need a credential evaluation report compulsorily. These reports are not as detailed as a transcript evaluation; however they have the ideal amount of data and comparison required. There are two reports that can be used to serve this purpose. (1) Document Evaluation Report (2) Education and Work Experience Report.

Document Evaluation Reports

All one needs here is a simple but detailed document stating the US equivalence of one's diploma or degree, useful and true information of the degree granting institution including its accreditation status and the duration of studies. For employment and immigration a document evaluation should be sufficient as the USCIS is not concerned with one's grade point average or hours completed.

Education and Work Knowledge Evaluation Reports

As the title suggests, this report combines education and work experience of an individual primarily. There are quite a few points to cover here. Equating knowledge to education has various norms. The initial and foremost rule is experience needs to be in the relevant field of education. A Computer Science degree followed by work in an Insurance company cannot be equated. Whereas a Bachelor's in Computer Science followed by five years of work knowledge in the same field could equate to a Master's in Computer Science. If we talk about equating knowledge at an undergrad level, three years of work knowledge is equal to one year of post secondary education. However these points need to be covered by a credential evaluation company. Reports by them could only explain the equivalence of your education as compared to the US standards.
