Foreign Diploma Evaluation

Foreign Diploma Evaluation

America is sometimes referred to as the “Land of Opportunity” because of its abundance of leading academic institutions and bustling free-market economy. However, foreign students and job-seekers coming to the U.S. for a chance at a better life may face certain obstacles along the way.

Foreign students, graduates, and job-seekers in the United States typically need verification of their academic credentials at some point if they wish to attend a U.S. university, enlist in the U.S. military, or secure employment. Their first inclination may be to turn to the federal government for assistance.

Unfortunately while the U.S. government offers a number of valuable programs to immigrants, foreign diploma evaluation is not one of them. The good news is that SpanTran: The Evaluation Company is there to assist immigrants in their time of need.

A Wide Range of Diploma Evaluation Services

Individuals from foreign countries around the globe have come to trust SpanTran for timely and accurate evaluation of diploma and other academic credentials since 1982. SpanTran provides students and job seekers with a variety of value-added services, including course analysis, translation, and verification of documents.

Our thorough and accurate reports give decision-makers all the information they need to facilitate their selection process. The availability of three different diploma evaluation processing times ensures our clients can get the degree evaluations they need, when they need it, and at a price that suits their budget.

Diploma Evaluation Types for Multiple Situations

SpanTran offers six different types of evaluations, covering a multitude of needs. The General Analysis, or simple equivalency, identifies baseline credentials independent of applicants’ standing in their home country. The Course Analysis and Divisional Analysis provide a more comprehensive examination through transcript comparison. Analysis is also available for specialized disciplines, including Engineering, Nursing, and Teaching.

Evaluation of Diploma Adhering to the Highest Standard of Quality

Our clients also benefit by having the peace of mind from knowing that SpanTran adheres to the highest standards for quality in the diploma evaluation industry. Since 1996 SpanTran has been a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services.

NACES sets the standard for industry excellence, ensuring its member organizations perform foreign degree evaluations that are thorough and reliable, and that evaluators use the most current available reference materials during the process. Many institutions will only accept a diploma evaluation coming from a NACES-member company such as SpanTran.
