What is an acceptable international/ non-U.S. degree equivalency and recognized evaluations?
  • A transcript from a non-U.S. regionally accredited college/university must be submitted to a  recognized U.S. credential evaluation service ( an evaluation service that is a member of  NACES – the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services) for credit equivalency  evaluation. Accredited colleges and universities in the United States may also make such  evaluations. If the evaluation determines the studies completed outside the U.S. to be  equivalent to a bachelor’s degree or higher in the U.S., the adult learner will satisfy the  bachelor’s degree requirement for an AMS credential upon successful completion
  • A credential is awarded to those whose degree is officially determined not to be equivalent to a  U.S. bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college/university, but which still meets the  nationally recognized post-secondary educational standard in the state, province, or country of  issuance, including a normal program length of a minimum of three years. This credential will  state the degree and the name of the country in which the degree was earned
