Credential Evaluation Service Agencies
All US colleges and Universities require international students to have their credentials evaluated by an agency that is a member of NACES) if you did not go to an English school that follows the US school system. Graduate schools will require a course-by-course evaluation in American semester hours and should request that the evaluating agency should state the highest level of education completed.
Check with the schools you are applying to - some of them may request that you use a specific agency.
