Additional Information about NACES

NACES affiliates provide professional assistance in evaluating the educational background of persons educated abroad. Advisory statements on educational equivalency are prepared on request for colleges and universities, professional organizations and public school systems.

Background: NACES is an association of private foreign transcript evaluation services committed to formulating and maintaining ethical standards in the field of foreign educational evaluation. Within the United States, no government agency monitors establishment of foreign credential evaluation services. NACES was founded in 1987 by credential evaluation services dedicated to promoting excellence and committed to setting the standards for the profession.

Method of Service: The evaluation service is conducted by mail, facsimile, or electronic means. If additional information is needed to supplement material submitted, the applicant, who is responsible for submitting all necessary records documenting the educational background for which the evaluation is being sought, is contacted. Two to three weeks are usually required to complete an evaluation after all documentation has been received. Additional time may be needed if considerable research and correspondence are necessary to verify the credentials.

Fee: The fee depends on the type and complexity of the evaluation and is indicated on the application form. It includes the preparation of one original and one copy of the evaluation. An extra fee for services, such as original typed copies or overseas telephone calls will be charged.

Documents Required: Typically, clear notarized copies of original materials should be submitted to the evaluation service selected. Please check requirements of the particular NACES evaluation service selected. These documents are verified for accuracy.

Warning: Alterations of records or forged records will result in cancellation of the evaluation. Other evaluation services and all recipients indicated will be notified. In such cases, no refund of the fee will be made by the evaluation service.
