Credential Evaluation

During the hiring process, prospective employees with degrees from international institutions may need their credentials to be evaluated to a US equivalent.

If a degree is NOT from a university in the US, an acceptable evaluation is needed and should:

  • consider formal education only, not practical training experience;
  • state if the collegiate training was post secondary education, i.e., did the applicant complete the United States equivalent of high school studies before entering college;
  • provide a detailed explanation of the materials evaluated, rather than a simple conclusive statement;
  • briefly state the qualifications and experience of the evaluator providing the opinion.
