• We may determine that credentials submitted for evaluation must be sent for verification before an official evaluation can be completed. We reserve the right to contact educational institutions and/or governmental entities for verification of the credential submitted.
  • Official documents and documents received directly from the issuing institution will not be released to the candidate. The documents become the property of NASBA International Evaluation Services.
  • NASBA International Evaluation Services will contact you if additional documents are required to perform an evaluation.
  • NIES does not evaluate foreign education for admission to academic institutions, immigration, or employment in the United States. Please visit our wholly-owned subsidiary, Aequo International, for these services.
  • If your credentials are under another name, you must send legal verification of all name changes.
