Course-by-Course Evaluations

Starting Price $245

A thoroughly detailed U.S. equivalency report including subjects, credits, and grades

A Course-by-Course report evaluates each foreign academic program to determine its corresponding US educational equivalent. These reports are far more detailed than Document-by-Document evaluations. In addition to discussing institutional accreditation/recognition, program duration, dates of study, and entrance requirements, this comprehensive report includes a listing of the coursework completed within each program, along with the equivalent US credit hours and US grade per subject.
Name on Academic Documents

Educational History

It is the responsibility of the applicant to know the requirements of the receiving institution and to provide the appropriate documentation. Please submit all relevant educational documents (i.e. diploma, transcript, mark sheets). The evaluation will indicate if originals, certified copies, or photocopies were submitted. Credentials equivalent to completion of professional or vocational training will not be included in the evaluation. If both secondary (high school) and university-level credentials are submitted, the Foundation for International Services, Inc. (FIS) will analyze the post-secondary studies only, unless requested at the time of application. English translations (preferably certified translations) are required for all non-English documents that are necessary to perform an evaluation. FIS offers translation services (these fees are in addition to the evaluation price).

Requests for Next Day Services must be received before 2:00pm (Pacific). Requests for Same Day Services must be received before 12:00pm (Pacific). Adding translation services will extend the turnaround time/due date.

  • The fastest turnaround timing we offer for a combined Document by Document evaluation with translations is a total of 3 business days (this is with the purchase of a Next Day Service).
  • One Week Document by Document or Course by Course Evaluation combined with Translation services is extended to a total of 7 business days.
  • FIS translation services are separate fees in addition to the evaluation price.
  • Timing begins once payment is received and all necessary/requested documents are on file.
Evaluation reports are delivered via email as a high-resolution, color PDF.

In preparing an evaluation report, every effort is made to consult appropriate resources in order to provide the most accurate evaluation possible consistent with the purpose of the request. The Foundation reserves the right to contact institutions/agencies and to verify the accuracy/authenticity of any documents submitted for evaluation. This may affect the timing of the evaluation. The decision as to whether a formal evaluation report will be completed rests solely with FIS. Any file inactive for more than six (6) months may be cancelled.
