Required Documentation

IERF General Document Requirements

Be certain that you have all the necessary documents before sending your application, as missing documents will delay the processing of your evaluation.

Also, be sure to read the IERF Country-Specific Requirements section (below), as it provides a more detailed description of the required academic records by country of study.

Academic Records

Please note that IERF requires official academic records. Unofficial student copies will not be accepted, even if they are issued by the school.

Please submit the following:

Transcripts / Mark Sheets / Examination Certificates / Academic Records indicating courses/subjects, hours of study/units/credits, and grades/marks/examination results, issued in the original language. These must be issued on institutional letterhead and include official signatures and seals. If the hours/units/credits are not included on the academic records, please submit program descriptions/syllabi issued by the institution, where applicable.

Diplomas / Graduation Certificates / Degree Certificates issued in the original language (indicating that a degree/qualification has been earned or that a program of study has been completed). If the degree was not earned, please indicate so in writing.

If available, plan of studies / curriculum indicating the structure of your program of study

Copy of the title page, abstract, table of contents, and first ten pages of the dissertation for the evaluation of doctoral studies

Please note that if you have postsecondary studies, you are not required to submit academic records for secondary studies. Also, if you have completed graduate studies, the undergraduate academic records are still required.

If you have completed studies in the United States, please submit a copy of the transcript and/or diploma as supporting documentation. Please note, however, that your US studies will not be included in the evaluation, as colleges, universities, and licensing agencies evaluate credentials from the United States according to their individual policies.

Original Documents

In some instances, IERF requires original academic records. Please be sure to check IERF’s Country-Specific Requirements (see section below) for more information.

Official certified true copies of academic records issued by the institution of study or relevant government body may be acceptable as original, whereas notarized copies are not.

Helpful Tip:
Even when they are not required by IERF’s Country-Specific Requirements (see section below), it is recommended that you submit original academic documents to prevent any potential delay in the processing of your application. Please note that IERF also reserves the right to request original documents at any time during the evaluation process.

All original documents submitted by the applicant will be returned when the evaluation is mailed.
