Foreign Degree and Credit Equivalency

Applicants seeking licensure on the basis of foreign (non-U.S.) coursework and/or diplomas must provide the Office of Educator Licensure with a detailed equivalency report or course-by-course evaluation of any college-level credit completed.

Independent evaluations must be made by a nationally recognized agency such as those listed below. If you would like to utilize the services of an agency not listed here, please contact the Office of Educator Licensure to make sure the agency is fully recognized:
