Frequently Asked Questions Qualifications

How do I receive credit for a college degree obtained in a foreign university in another country?

Applicants must submit all necessary documents to a private U. S. organization, commonly called a credential evaluation service, for interpretation of their foreign education or degree.  To be acceptable for Federal employment, foreign education must be equivalent to education or degrees acquired at accredited colleges, universities, or educational institutions in the United States.
