General Equivalency Reports - are often called "document-by-document" reports showing benchmark degree equivalencies: high school diploma, associate degree, bachelor degree, master degree, doctor of philosophy degree or professional degree. This type of report is primarily used for immigration and employment purposes, but can also be used for educational purposes. This report includes information regarding the academic qualification, institution, country of origin, and U.S. academic equivalency. It does not include a listing of subjects, credits, grades or GPA.
1. One should first be sure that a report from e-ValReports will be accepted by the institution or employer where you plan to submit it. While e-ValReports is a member of NACES through December 31, 2018, some institutions prefer reports from selected agencies. It is your responsibility to investigate that a report will be accepted before requesting one. Once a report is issued, there is no refund of payment.
2. Certified or notarized copies of original documents should be submitted for evaluation. Original documents may be requested and will be returned if submitted. Certified translations may be required depending on the foreign language.
3.Payment of fee is by check or money order only - no credit card payment. Checks should be drawn in U.S. dollars on a U.S. bank and made payable to e-ValReports. Thus, individuals should mail the Request Form with documents and fee. Emailing the Request Form and documents will not hasten the process, as it begins when everything - including payment - is in the office.
4. Original reports are sent via first class mail. Clients wanting express mail service must provide a pre-paid return envelope, pre-paid mailing label or billing label. Copies of reports are generally emailed on the day of issuance.
5. Some documents submitted may require verification from the issuing institution and may cause delay in the processing. If that occurs, notification will be sent by email. Altered, fraudulent, or inauthentic documents submitted will result in no report issued, loss of payment, and notification to authorities. No reports will be issued with documents from "diploma mills."
