U.S. Equivalency Evaluations of Foreign Degrees

Equivalency Evaluation Services

If you are a foreign student seeking to further your education, enlist in the military, or gain employment in the United States, the accurate evaluation of your foreign educational credentials is essential. You need an equivalency evaluation service that you can trust.

Since 1982, SpanTran: The Evaluation Company has been providing reliable equivalency evaluation and translation services. During this time, we’ve developed a well-deserved reputation as one of the most respected equivalency evaluation services in the industry.

An Equivalency Evaluation Service with a NACES Membership

Choosing a foreign degree equivalent evaluation service that is a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services should be a requirement of your selection process. The NACES is widely recognized as the gold standard of credential evaluations, and many academic institutions and professional organizations will only accept degree equivalents that are performed by NACES members.

The NACES was developed to create and implement a set of ethical standards for the credential evaluation industry and to ensure the quality of the evaluations its members provide. SpanTran has been a proud member of the NACES since 1996 and is currently one of only 21 education equivalency services to earn membership privileges.

Fast Service from an Equivalency Evaluation Service is Vital

While quality is a necessary component of the equivalency evaluation service you select, the availability of a rapid turnaround time can be crucial. If you are in tight competition for a job opening that must be filled quickly, for instance, waiting several weeks for a credential evaluation simply is not a viable option.

While the typical turnaround time for our service is 12 days, SpanTran also offers expedited service where the evaluation is completed in only two days. With SpanTran, you won’t have to put your career or educational pursuits on hold due to slow service.

An Equivalency Evaluation Service with an Easy Application Process

The equivalency evaluation service you choose should not include a cumbersome, confusing application process. The SpanTran application procedure consists of filling out a simple form requiring you to provide basic information about yourself and the institution to which you wish to submit the evaluation.

The entire process takes only 5-10 minutes and you can easily request a degree equivalency assessment by applying online. You also have the option to apply in person at our conveniently located Manhattan, NY, Houston, TX or Miami, FL facilities if you prefer. To meet the needs of today’s multicultural, multilingual world, we’ve made the application available in English, French, and Spanish.

An Equivalency Evaluation Service Offering Transparent Pricing

Evaluating foreign degree equivalent should not have a complex pricing structure loaded with hidden fees. SpanTran pricing is based on the type of evaluation you select and the time frame in which you need it. Our published schedule of services and fees clearly indicates all costs involved, so there will never be any unwanted surprises.

An Equivalency Evaluation Company that Delivers Personalized Service

With something as important to your future as a foreign credential evaluation, receiving a high level of personalized service is imperative. With SpanTran, you’ll be able to easily reach us by telephone with questions or concerns. If you prefer to contact us by email, you will typically receive a response within the hour.

SpanTran Can Fulfill All Your Equivalency Evaluation Needs
