Affiliation with a selective association such as NACES® is an important indication of the quality of work accomplished by a foreign credential evaluation service and an assurance that the evaluations it performs will be reliable.
NACES® members serve foreign-educated persons who have completed part or all of their education outside of the United States and who are seeking further education, professional licensure, or employment in the United States. Foreign-educated persons are referred to NACES® member organizations by administrators in the United States who need to make a decision based upon an applicant's educational qualifications. NACES® members provide expertise on the educational systems, institutions, programs, and documents of other countries.
Evaluation reports prepared by NACES® members are judgments based on appropriate reference material, including current research. NACES® member organizations examine documents for accuracy and authenticity. Reports include information about the credential awarded and the U.S. equivalency.
Individuals and organizations wishing to have a NACES member evaluate their foreign education credentials should use the Current Members page for a complete listing of our members with links to their websites.
