Application Procedure

IERF pre-screens applications for military evaluations. Recruiters may fax or e-mail the necessary documents to our Military Department who will, in return, contact the recruiter with information regarding any further necessary documentation.

Please note that applications received after 3:00pm PST/PDT will be considered to have been received the next business day. This also applies to payments, correspondence and documentation received after 3:00pm PST/PDT.

IERF accepts pre-arranged walk-ins for military evaluations. Documents may be dropped off or picked up during the following walk-in hours only:

Tuesday: 8:00am to 11:00am and 1:00pm to 3:30pm
Wednesday: 1:00pm to 3:30pm
Thursday: 8:00am to 11:00am

These hours are for military personnel and staff sergeants only. Our office is closed to the public.

Alternatively, military personnel may choose to mail the application and academic records to our office.

Our processing time is generally 24-48 hours from the receipt of all required documentation and/or fees.

Please note that any questions regarding a file must be directed to IERF by military personnel only. 


A file number will be assigned upon receipt of the application. All applications need to be submitted and signed by the recruiter.  We are not able to accept military applications from the applicants directly.


This report identifies the institution(s) attended, dates of attendance, credential(s) earned, and the United States educational equivalent.
