Thank you for your interest in the foreign credential evaluation service that we offer.
Our main goal is to help students, as well as professionals who have completed all or part of their education outside the United States reach their educational and career goals. We do this through the process called international credential evaluation (also referred to as foreign credential evaluation or international degree evaluation).
International credential evaluation process involves analyzing and critically assessing educational credentials obtained from countries outside of the United States to determine its equivalents in terms of U.S. education system. We evaluate educational credentials such as high school diploma/secondary or higher secondary school certificate, undergraduate (associate, bachelor), and graduate (master or doctorate) degrees.
Once we are done reviewing and assessing, and validating the educational credentials, we generate an evaluation report with sufficient information on the equivalent of level of education completion in the United States.
Our evaluation report is suitable for applicants pursuing further education (undergraduate, transfer, or graduate admission), employment, immigration, and professional license or certification.
To date, we have evaluated academic credentials for applicants from various countries in Africa, Europe, Latin, and South America, Asia, and the Middle East. Our specialty is grounded in our skills and knowledge in educational systems around the world.
It is important to emphasize that our company evaluates international credentials by following strict ethical standards and procedures set forth by international education organizations such as NAFSA (Association of International Educators), AACRAO (American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers), TAICEP (The Association of International Credential Evaluation Professionals).

Types Of Credential Evaluation
General Evaluation/Statement of Comparability
This type of credential evaluation provides an overview/summary of education credentials obtained abroad to the United States equivalent. In the report, we include the purpose of evaluation, list institution(s) attended, the name, type and level of degree or diploma obtained; major or program completed, and institution(s) accreditation and recognition, as well as the overall equivalent of the educational qualification obtained.
Please see samples of the credential evaluation report section for more information.
Comprehensive/Detailed course-by-course evaluation report contains the same information as general evaluation and other information such as courses completed at the post-high or secondary school level, the credit and grade conversion. We also calculate and provide GPA information on a U.S. 4.0 scale. This type of evaluation enables the prospective applicant to obtain college credits (lower/upper-level courses) for previous college coursework. It also allows higher education institutions, professional organizations to have a true picture of the applicant’s academic classification/rank. Furthermore, a comprehensive/detailed course-by-course with GPA evaluation is suitable for transfer or continuing undergraduate and graduate admission, employment, professional licensure, etc.
Comprehensive Evaluation with Detailed Work Experience
Comprehensive evaluation with work experience is much detailed in nature. This type of evaluation provides information about the applicant’s academic and professional educational backgrounds (certification, diplomas, and degrees earned at an undergraduate, graduate, or professional level), as well as detailed work or professional experience. This evaluation is particularly suitable for immigration (H1B Work Visa or Permit), Professional licensure, employment, and the like. We require applicants to provide academic and professional credentials, detailed or comprehensive resume/CV, letter of reference for previous work experience. The reference letters from previous employers confirming job title/position, job description or duties performed, list of research publications and/or conference paper presentation, etc. Please note that the Comprehensive evaluation with detailed work experience we provide is in accordance with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) rules and regulations.
Our International Credential Evaluation Process
At BEIS, the step to credential evaluation process begins by collecting information from the applicant, thus, we require every applicant to complete an application for credential evaluation, provide accurate biographical and education data. We also require the applicant to list all educational institution(s) attended with dates on the application and submit all educational documents obtained outside the United States. These documents include graduation certificate, transcript/mark sheet, statement of results, etc.
Educational Institution Status & Unaccredited/Degree Mill Check
It is imperative to know the status of educational institution applicants presented for evaluation. Therefore, we check on the status of the foreign academic institutions where the applicant studied to ensure that the educational institution attended exist. We also do research to determine the accreditation and recognition of the education institution through the official government establishment such as the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Higher Education of the country concerned. We check the institution that issued the education credentials the applicant presented against the list of Unaccredited/Diploma Mills database or registry for reference.
Education System (Examination Boards/Agencies Check)
The education system varies around the world. Even countries within the same region often have an unequal and disparate system of education. The review of the education system of the country where the applicant studied through several authoritative published and online materials is performed. Additionally, we check the appropriate examination board and compare the certificate or diploma issued at the end of the education cycle or ladder (e.g. secondary/high school, college, or university level) for comparison.
Verification, Validation, and Authentication of Educational Credentials
The verification, validation, and/or authentication of academic credentials presented for evaluation is an integral part of the evaluation process and is very crucial to confirm the overall authenticity of the academic credentials. We compare the educational documents presented to the list of verified documents that we have in our archives and other sources to determine authenticity and identify forged or altered documents. Most importantly, we reserve the right to contact the issuing institution for verification. Therefore, any documents found to be altered or forged are not returned to the applicant, and all fees paid are forfeited. In addition, we notify all parties concerned and seek legal action to the extent permitted by law.
Evaluation Report: The Final Product
Once we are done reviewing all the educational documents and satisfied with the outcome, an evaluation report is generated with detailed or sufficient information on the equivalency of the level of education completed in the United States. Generally, the equivalency statement will be included in the summary section of the evaluation report. And it will compare the academic credential(s) to what is obtained at a regionally accredited institution of higher education in the United States.
**Please note that we do not charge per document, instead applicants pay one fee regardless of how many educational credentials submitted. In addition, we do not evaluate education credentials obtained at any education institution within the United States unless it is for overseas use.**
* NOTE TO APPLICANTS It is important to note that we reserve the right to contact the issuing institution of the academic credentials applicants presents for evaluation. Therefore, any documents submitted that are found to be altered or forged will not be returned to the applicant, and all fees paid will not be refunded. Additionally, any designated educational institution, organization, or employer on the application will be notified and all necessary legal action will be taken to the extent permitted by law.
