A Document-by-Document report evaluates each foreign academic program to determine its corresponding US educational equivalent. These reports are simpler than Course-by-Course evaluations, but they include all the basic criteria expected by potential employers, schools, universities, and licensing boards including institutional accreditation/recognition, program duration, dates of study, and entrance requirements. For an additional fee, the report may be modified to include a cumulative grade point average (GPA) per program/degree.

In some circumstances, FIS will evaluate work experience to determine educational equivalencies based on regulatory guidelines for clients seeking to meet U.S. immigration requirements (for example, H-1B visa petitioners). Clients may also want to review the information for Expert Opinion evaluations.

Please check with the institution or agency to which you will submit the evaluation report to determine if a Document-by-Document evaluation meets their requirements. The Document-by-Document is typically used for immigration, military enlistment, or general employment.
