Equivalency Evaluations

Equivalency Evaluations For International Academic Credentials

All degrees received from educational institutions outside the United States must be evaluated for equivalency by an agency acceptable to the American Board of Bioanalysis (ABB).

All international transcripts must be provided in English. Transcripts that are not provided in English must be translated by a service approved by ABB. The cost of the translation shall be paid by the applicant.

A detailed report of course-by-course evaluation is required. Be sure to check with the agency to ensure that this service is offered before requesting an evaluation.

Original transcripts must be sent directly from the academic institution to the evaluation agency. Transcripts sent from the applicant to the evaluation agency will NOT be accepted for course-by-course evaluation.

Evaluations from approved agencies MUST be forwarded directly FROM the issuing agency and MUST be official. Fees for such an evaluation shall be borne by the applicant.
