Educational practices and standards often vary widely from one region to the next. As a result, what qualifies as a high school diploma or a bachelors degree in one location may not meet the standards embraced elsewhere. In situations where a person’s educational achievements are the single most important mark of qualification – from college/university enrollment to immigration to employment and professional certification – applicants from outside the U.S. face a significant disadvantage if those responsible for reviewing international academic credentials do not possess the specialized knowledge and experience necessary to interpret them properly.
