NASBA International Evaluation Services provides an online application for applicants. We do not have a paper-based application available for use.
Along with your online application for an international credential evaluation, you are required to provide the following:
Currently, NASBA International Evaluation Services evaluates only for the CPA profession.
International applicants must submit official transcripts, mark sheets, or certificates and degrees via postal service. Official documents must be received via postal service directly from the issuing institution in order for the evaluation to be released to the requested board of accountancy. NIES will destroy official transcripts four times each year during January, April, July and October. A scanned image of all documents received will be maintained indefinitely. Please note that original documents that are irreplaceable WILL NOT be destroyed.
Syllabi and Course Descriptions
In order to prepare an evaluation report for the CPA examination, we may request an official syllabus or course description for all accounting and business courses at the post-secondary level (university level). A syllabus or course description may be required to assess your accounting and business studies at the post-secondary level for the CPA examination. An official syllabus or course description may be obtained from your university or college. Official syllabi or course descriptions must be on university or college letterhead or published on the university’s website. Please contact our office if you have any questions about providing syllabi or course descriptions for your accounting and business courses.
We will evaluate coursework from accounting professional organizations on a case-by-case basis. If you have coursework from the Institute of Chartered Accountants or a similar organization, please send your official certificates and examination information from the issuing institution along with study plans, syllabi, or course descriptions.
Certified English Translations
If your official transcript is not in English, you must have the document translated before our office can process your application. Certified English translations of transcripts, certificates, or diplomas must be provided by a member of the American Translators Association (ATA), embassy, or consulate of the document’s issuing country. Consulates and embassies often serve as a resource for the attestation of educational documents. The following standards will apply to English translations:
NIES prefers English translations from Credential Consultants or U.S. Translation Company:
The applicant will be held responsible for submitting falsified or fraudulent documents. In the event that NASBA International Evaluation Services determines that documents submitted have been forged, the applicant will be denied an evaluation, all fees will be forfeited, and the appropriate boards will be notified.
