What type of evaluation do I need?
This depends on its purpose. If the purpose is to continue with further studies in the U.S., you would probably need a course by course evaluation of your foreign education. It is advisable to contact the agency or institution for which the report is to be used in order to determine which report is required and to confirm that the report will be accepted.
If the purpose is to obtain a H1-B visa, you will need an educational evaluation or professional work experience evaluation depending upon the level of your education in the specialty occupation of intended employment. You should consult with an immigration attorney prior to submitting your application.
If I have more than one degree or diploma, how much will the evaluation report cost?
The evaluation fee is set by the type of evaluation requested, not by the number of degrees or diplomas one has. If you are requesting an educational evaluation the standard processing fee is $50.00 regardless of the number of degrees or diplomas. For a course by course evaluation, the standard processing fee is $150.00. For a professional work experience evaluation, the standard processing time is $200.00.
