Sources for the Evaluation of Diplomas from Foreign Universities to Determine USA Educational Equivalency


Albanian and other newcomers to the USA who have received diplomas as graduates of universities or institutes of higher learning in Albania and other foreign countries should have their diplomas evaluated to determine their equivalency to degrees offered by USA colleges and universities. This is important when seeking to continue with academic studies or for professional employment purposes.
