If your evaluation is for an immigration visa application, it is important that your evaluation equivalency be relevant to your prospective employment. There are primarily two types of evaluations: 1) Academic Evaluations and 2) Work Experience Evaluations. In general, if your non-US degree is equivalent to a US degree that is directly related to the job you will do, you will only need an evaluation of academic credentials. If your degree is not equivalent to a US degree, or if it is in a field outside of your prospective employment, a work experience evaluation may be necessary. If you are unsure which type of evaluation you need, please submit your documents by sending an email or using the quote form and request a preliminary assessment. Also, it is always best to consult with your lawyer with regards to the type of evaluation you need for the immigration application, before submitting a request.
Work experience evaluations take 7-9 business days to process and it will be sent to your email. Once you review it and confirm you have no corrections, it will then be mailed to your address.
