Credentials Evaluation

Applicants with education obtained at an institution outside the U.S. must, at their own expense, have their education credentials evaluated by a credential evaluation agency. The applicant should then submit the agency’s report as part of their application by uploading the report to the application portal as a Supporting Documentation attachment.

The agency report must provide the following:

  • Confirmation of degree status (i.e. an evaluation of the applicant’s foreign education program that determines an equivalent U.S. degree).
  • A breakdown of the applicant’s courses with credits and grade equivalents.

Listed below are examples of a few agencies that provide credential evaluation services:
