Academic Equivalency Evaluation
Park’s evaluators analyze the foreign educational credentials of the candidate in order to determine the American equivalent level of education – along with the degree and field of specialization – and arrive at an accurate assessment of academic standing. Academic Equivalency Evaluations account for the reality of the international educational system, the value of the school attended, credit hours completed, the topic and quality of the courses attended, and grades earned.
All evaluations are consistent with AACRAO EDGE.
In order to produce an academic equivalency evaluation, we require all academic records, including degree certificate(s) and transcripts. If academic records are in a language other than English, you can either provide us with certified translations or we can have them translated into English for an additional fee.
This is an in-house evaluation of a combination of academic credentials and experience in the IT sector.
We assess employment experience as it may be equivalent to academic achievement in the United States. Our professors and evaluation experts look at how training, intra- office/position progression, and overall employment duties filled by the candidate contribute to a positive resume analysis. Our evaluations are prepared in accordance with USCIS regulations. Park’s evaluators have the authority to grant university-level credits based on work experience.
If experience is in a field other than IT or related, please see “Experience Expert Letter“.
In order to produce a work-experience evaluation, we require the following:
A thorough resume detailing specific jobs held, names of employers, dates of employment, and responsibilities of the positions held.
Reference letters from previous employers verifying all details of the employment mentioned in the resume.
All academic records, including degree certificate(s) and transcript.
Course By Course Evaluation
At Park, the course by course evaluation is our most comprehensive academic evaluation. In addition to equating foreign credentials with their US equivalent, all courses taken are described; grades are recorded and then calculated toward comprehensive Grade-Point-Average Totals coherent with the academic style of universities in the United States.
In order to produce a course-by-course evaluation, we require all academic records, including degree certificate(s) and transcripts.
