by Admin 7. May 2015 07:03

Foreign Credits is pleased to announce that we have joined AICE, the Association of International Credential Evaluators, Inc.® as an Endorsed Member Evaluation Service.  Through extensive research and deliberation, we have decided that membership in this professional not-for profit organization is best suited for our needs since it is founded on sound research-based policies governing ethical standards in a progressive business environment. We look forward to continuing to provide thorough, accurate, and timely credential evaluation services to the comparative education community in North America and beyond.

The mission of AICE® is to “promote best practices in the international credentials evaluation field, advance comparative education research, and provide the general public with access to trustworthy credential evaluation expertise.”  Foreign Credits Inc. supports this mission entirely, as it compares favorably to our professional activities. Our staff, including the Evaluation Team led by Aleks Morawski, Director of Evaluation Services, regularly participate in numerous professional organizations and present and train credential evaluation methodology to the public at large. Our up-to-date and ongoing research is the hallmark of advancing comparative education knowledge, which we provide to the general public through comprehensive credential evaluation services and resources, including a free GPA calculator and a database of higher educational systems. Foreign Credits maintains our belief in providing expert credential evaluation services while developing trust with the international education community and all individuals educated in the United States and abroad navigating the waters of comparative international education.

Unaccredited Colleges and Universities

by Rita 3. July 2010 10:33

Are you worried about diploma mills and other unaccredited institutions issuing fake degrees? We sure are. Over 100,000 fake degrees are issued every year in the United States alone, making this a multi-million dollar industry. What's even worse is that many fake degrees are never investigated, and no one is punished for them. Some diploma mills do eventually get shut down, but by that time they have already issued thousands of diplomas. Some individuals even sell fake diplomas and marksheets that look like they are from a prestigious university, but they are usually easier to spot because the university will not be able to verify the credentials.

We want to help with identifying unaccredited institutions, which is why we published a list of unaccredited colleges and universities on our website. It has 250 institutions from over 20 countries so far, but more will be added as we become aware of them. We want you to know that we will never evaluate academic credentials issued by any institution on that list, or any credentials that we find suspicious for other reasons. There are a few similar references online, so our goal is to gather all available information in one place. We also want you to tell us if you find an unaccredited institution that's not on that list, and we will add it. If you find a mistake, we would like to know as well. No list such as this is complete, but we hope to make it more so with your help.
