Translators with knowledge of educational records and terminology should be used.

Provide an advisory opinion about what an individual's foreign educational background represents in U.S. terms, for purposes such as employment, immigration, professional licensure and further education. Some agencies specialize in evaluations related to employment, while others specialize in academic evaluations. UC campuses do their own evaluations and do not accept evaluations done by evaluation agencies. Students who want to transfer to other colleges and universities should check with receiving institutions before transferring to find out whether those institutions would accept such an evaluation. The National Association of Credential Evaluations Services (NACES) is a membership organization for credential evaluation services. The NACES home page (http://www.naces.org) lists member evaluation services.
NOTE: Please check the web site listed for updated information about about each company and fees.
