Get information on academic credential assessment services
Some organizations in Canada responsible for the recognition of academic credentials may not have the capacity to assess the international academic credentials you are presenting to them.
This may be the case when you apply:
- for admission to an educational institution for further studies;
- for professional certification, licensing, or registration in a regulated occupation;
- for a job with an employer in a non-regulated occupation.
These organizations may sometimes rely on external academic credential assessment services to support their internal process. Six members of the Alliance of Credential Evaluation Services of Canada (ACESC) can provide this service.
Upon completion of an academic credential assessment for general purposes, you would receive an assessment report, which in turn could be provided to the organization responsible for the recognition of your international academic credentials.
