    Certain jurisdictions will accept credits from professional organizations if the credit is determined to be equivalent to academic study from an accredited post-secondary institution in the United States. Contact our office to learn more if you have completed examinations, coursework or credits from a professional organization.

    Please Note: We do not do evaluations for New York licensure.

    If your official government ID (i.e passport) does not indicate a surname or given name, please input NoLastName or NoFirstName on your application. This is a standard operating procedure consistent between NASBA International Evaluation Services (NIES), CPA Examination Services (CPAES), and Prometric testing centers.

    NASBA International Evaluation Services will only keep your application open for up to one year without a new status update. Applications that exceed one year without a status update will be closed. No refund will be issued and any official/replaceable documents will be destroyed. NASBA International Evaluation Services will also store documents for up to one year without an application. If you have not applied within one year, any official/replaceable documents will be destroyed.
