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:

  • Application fee
  • The necessary documents for all study completed must be mailed directly from the official transcript issuing department from the educational institution. Please use the drop down menu to determine your country’s required documentation.
    • International Credential Evaluation will not accept transfer study on another transcript
  • Complete set of official (or notarized photocopy) English translations for non-English documents
  • Please Note: Mail all application documents to NASBA International Evaluation Services. Failure to add International Evaluation Services to the address will result in the delay of your application being processed.
  • To see what the documentation requirements are from a specific country, select the country from the dropdown menu below:

Currently, NASBA International Evaluation Services evaluates only for the CPA profession.

International applicants must submit their official required documents via postal service. Official documents must be received via postal service directly from the issuing institution in an unopened university sealed envelope in order for the evaluation to be released to the requested board of accountancy. NIES destroys official transcripts regularly. 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.

Professional Organizations

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 have your official certificates and examination information along with study plans, syllabi, or course descriptions sent in a sealed envelope from the issuing organization

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:

  • All information listed on the document must be translated verbatim
  • All translations must be prepared using the same format as the original document
  • No interpretation or evaluation of information should be included
  • All translations must be typed, signed and dated by the translator
  • Contact information for the translator must be listed, including address, phone and fax number, and email address

In addition to these translations, you must provide us with your original or official transcripts issued directly from your university.

NIES prefers English translations from Credential Consultants:
