Applicants can choose one of the three different types of Evaluation. The types of Evaluation are: 


1) A summary report of the U.S. equivalency requirements for all foreign educational credentials, including when and where the certificate was earned.

2)  A course breakdown with grades earned, including the number of U.S. semester or quarter hours completed.

3)  A detailed analysis of course work and academic standing, including course levels and semester and cumulative GPA.

We also evaluate High School Diplomas and Certificates.

S credits/units and grade equivalencies in chronological order.  All institutions, country of origin, degrees obtained, and years completed will be included in this analysis.
