What We Do

Foreign Credential Evaluations, Inc. (FCE) evaluates credentials received from educational institutions abroad (e.g. Bachillerato, Licenciado, Master, Diplom) and compares them to diplomas and degrees from educational institutions in the United States (e.g. High School Diploma, Bachelor, Master, Doctor of Philosophy, Doctor of Medicine).

Credentials are evaluated for law firms, universities, and employers for visas or placement in educational institutions. Credentials are also evaluated at the request of individuals for the same purposes.


This evaluation cites the documentation provided by the applicant. The applicant’s education, starting with secondary school and progressing through all stages and awards of post­-secondary education, is described and evaluated for equivalency to the U.S. system of education. Admissions requirements are listed for each level of study. The recognition status of the awarding institution is included. Source material by which the equivalency is determined is also cited in the evaluation. This evaluation can be requested by an individual or by a company, university or legal firm.


This evaluation is usually for international students who wish to enroll in a U.S. institution of higher education, or for professionals seeking licensure for employment. It includes the information contained in the Document-by-Document evaluation. In addition, it lists each course on the student’s transcript, converts the units to U.S. semester credit hours, and converts the grades to the U.S. 4.0 (A-F) grading scale. A cumulative grade point average is also included on a 4.0 numeric scale.
