What documentation do I need?
Generally speaking, you will need to submit copies of all your educational documents, including diplomas, transcripts, certificates, etc. We also require certified, literal English translations of all foreign language documents. Note that these will not be returned. If you are unsure about which documents are required from your country, feel free to contact us
What if I don't submit all the necessary documentation?
In the event that the necessary documents are not submitted, we will contact the applicant to request the missing documents. If the applicant is unable to provide the necessary documents, and decides to cancel the evaluation, a $75 processing fee will be deducted from any refunded payment. Please note that no evaluation will be conducted until all necessary documents are received. Therefore, failure to submit all necessary documents will result in obvious delays. We will not refund priority fees due to delays resulting from an applicant's failure to submit all necessary documents.
Will my documents be returned?
No, the photocopies of educational documents and the translations will be retained for EEI records and will not be returned. We will, however, return original documents. In this case, a $1 fee will be charged per page (added to the money order, cashier's check or credit card payment), and a self-addressed, stamped envelope must be included in order for the documents to be returned.
How can I pay for the evaluation I request?
EEI accepts payment in the form of money order, cashiers check or credit card. However, we cannot process personal checks.

Where will the evaluation report be sent?

How can I request a copy of a previously prepared evaluation report?
EEI will provide duplicate evaluation reports within 5 years of completion of the original. Download the application form and check only the box next to "Duplicate Evaluation Report," then complete and submit the form with the appropriate payment to our mailing address. We will locate your previously completed evaluation report and send the photocopy to the location you indicate. This process must be completed in writing and no phone call is necessary.
Are English translations necessary?
