Credential Review

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I posted this in another forum but got no response so far....

If you have had higher education, I assume everyone who immigrates and wants a job correlating with their major needs a credential review before they can work.

So my husband ended up with about 200 pages worth of course descriptions and syllabuses.....and we need to get them all translated before they can be reviewed. Where can we get help for this?? Forget regular translators...the cost is too great. The cheapest we've found is $3000 and she is ours that we had used in Costa Rica. Is there an organization that can help???

If you contact one of the foreign credential evaluation services listed here, they may be able to go through his transcript and do a course-by-course evaluation without having to have all of those documents translated.

I got this list from the Utah state Office of Education. Be aware that not every licensing board/institution.college/university accepts all of these evaluation companies. Any particular university may only like one or two of these. Check with the institution you are applying to before dropping money on one of these evaluation companies.

http://www.educationinternational.org/procedure.htm I used them and had the results back before they had even cashed my cheque!!

Canadians Visiting the USA while undergoing the visa process, my free advice:

1) Always tell the TRUTH. never lie to the POE officer

2) Be confident in ur replies

3) keep ur response short and to the point, don't tell ur life story!!

4) look the POE officer in the eye when speaking to them. They are looking for people lieing and have been trained to find them!

5) Pack light! No job resumes with you

6) Bring ties to Canada (letter from employer when ur expected back at work, lease, etc etc)

7) Always be polite, being rude isn't going to get ya anywhere, and could make things worse!!

8) Have a plan in case u do get denied (be polite) It wont harm ur visa application if ur denied,that is if ur polite and didn't lie! Refer to #1
