Evaluations vs. Translations

What is the difference between foreign credential evaluation and translation?

Foreign Credential Evaluations

Since the educational systems of countries vary greatly, comparing the educational level of individuals educated in different countries is complicated and requires specialized knowledge. The procedure used to make such a comparison is known as Foreign Credential Evaluation.

Foreign credential evaluation is the process of determining the U.S. academic equivalent of studies completed outside the United States. The process involves a thorough analysis of official academic credentials (diplomas; transcripts with courses, credits/hours, and grades; etc.) conducted by an expert evaluator. The evaluation process results in a final determination of equivalency which is issued in the form of a written Foreign Credential Evaluation Report.

Foreign Credential Translations

Translation of foreign educational credentials is often misunderstood as being the same as foreign credential evaluation, but they are two different processes. Translation is the process of rendering text in a different language. When the academic credentials being evaluated are issued in a language other than English, they must be translated into the English language first before they can be evaluated.

The cost of our Foreign Credential Evaluations is among the lowest of any recognized evaluation service, and we complete our non-rush evaluations in 10 business days. We also offer rush services for an additional fee. For specific fees and turnaround time, click on the service you are interested in.

For answers to common questions, please read the FAQ section which is now available in 10 languages.

Additional Evaluations

 

ABET Evaluations

At the request of the Florida Board of Professional Engineers our company provides evaluations of engineering study completed at regionally accredited institutions of higher education in the United States in terms of substantial equivalency of an EAC/ABET engineering degree.  Applicants must fill out the Application for Evaluation of Substantial Equivalency of an EAC/ABET Engineering Degree and mail it to us with the $360.00 fee (this includes one evaluation report for the applicant and one report for the FBPE).  Please note that fees are subject to change without notice. Applicants must have their official transcripts and course descriptions mailed directly to our office by the issuing institutions. Download application. 

Study Abroad Evaluations

While our company already evaluates study completed in study abroad programs in foreign countries, we also provide a preliminary evaluation for students attending a U.S. college or university who are considering a study abroad program, but want to know in advance if the study completed abroad is equivalent to completion of courses at regionally accredited institutions of higher education in the United States. Prior to requesting such an evaluation, the applicant needs to understand that while we provide a preliminary evaluation, the U.S. college or university will make the final determination whether this study will be transferred. It is therefore recommended, that you submit our completed preliminary evaluation to your study abroad office and receive an approval before you enroll in the study abroad program.

Our evaluation of a one- or two-semester study abroad program will provide the following information:

1. If the foreign institution you plan to attend is an accredited degree-granting institution of higher education in the foreign country.

2. If the courses you intend to take are equivalent to undergraduate or graduate study at a regionally accredited institution of higher education in the United States.

3. It will list the courses you plan to take and the equivalent U.S. semester credit hours for each course.

4. A statement whether upon successful completion of these courses, this study is or is not equivalent to study at a regionally accredited institution of higher education in the United States.

The cost for each study abroad program evaluation is $150. Each extra evaluation report is $20.  Please note that all fees are subject to change without notice. Please download the Application for Evaluation of Foreign Educational Credentials (Download application). Request the valuation and include a letter advising us that this preliminary evaluation is of courses you plan to take in a study abroad program. Be sure to include either a brochure in English on the specific foreign institution you plan to attend or its website in English. We also require a list of the specific courses you intend to take, including credits or hours of instruction.

If you do enroll in this study abroad program and successfully complete it, you may want to request a final evaluation. You will need to submit a new application form, the evaluation fee of $150 and an official original academic transcript listing courses taken, credits or hours of instruction and grades.

Institutional reports

 This service is generally requested by offices of Study Abroad and offices responsible for articulation agreements with foreign institutions of higher education. Institutional reports include the following information: name and location of the foreign institution, accreditation status, admission requirements into the institution, language of instruction, academic programs offered, degrees offered and the U.S. equivalents, hours of instruction or credit system used and how to determine the U.S. equivalent semester credit hours, the grading scale used and the U.S. equivalent grades, and the contact information. The cost of each institutional report is $600 and each report is normally completed in 4 weeks and it may take longer if we are having difficulty obtaining information from foreign institutions. Please note that prices are subject to change without notice.

 

Foreign University Level Teaching Evaluations 

At the request of the Florida Board of Education’s Teacher Certification Department, our company provides evaluations of foreign university level teaching experience.  Our evaluations will provide the following information:

1) If the institution where you taught is a (recognized) accredited degree-granting institution of higher education in the foreign country.

2) If the institution awards degrees that are equivalent at least to a bachelor's degree earned at a regionally accredited institution of higher education in the United States.

3) If the courses you taught at this institution were considered university-level courses for the students enrolled in them.

The cost for this evaluation is $150.00 and each extra evaluation report is $20. Please note that all fees are subject to change. Please download the Application for Evaluation of Foreign Educational Credentials (Download application) and for the professional services requested, check “Other” and write in Foreign University Level Teaching Experience.  Please make sure to include an official original letter (printed in the university stationery) verifying the information above, including if yours was a full-time or part-time teaching position and listing the courses you taught.  If this letter is not in English, our Translation Department can provide a certified English translation. (Translation Service)

While this evaluation was requested by the Florida Board of Education’s Teacher Certification Department, we would be pleased to provide this evaluation for other State Boards of Education as well.
