Making the most of credential evaluations for foreign-educated ELL adults

See also

Adult literacy education classrooms usually have English language learners who already hold college degrees from their native countries. How does the United States evaluate those degrees? Understanding what credential evaluation involves helps programs and practitioners better advise internationally educated adults.

On Tuesday, Jan. 28, from 2–3 p.m. (EST), Global Talent Bridge of the World Education Services (WES), a leading U.S. credential service organization in Lower Manhattan, is hosting the free webinar “Understanding Credential Education.” Registration is required.

WES explains that review boards require adults with international credentials to submit an evaluation to show their academic preparation and determine their eligibility for licensing or certification. The purpose is “to understand the exact nature and equivalency of foreign academic credentials, and provide verification of the authenticity of those credentials.”

Some topics the webinar covers include:

  • Selecting the right credential evaluation service
  • What documents are required
  • Who should get a credential evaluation
