The short and direct answer is, YES. There are multiple evaluation services to choose from. When searching for these evaluation companies, you need to be sure that the company is a member of an association that meets your needs. The US Department of Education recognizes AICE (Association of International Credential Evaluators, Inc.) and NACES (National Association of Credential Evaluation Services) organizations.
You will need to check with your institution or employer to see which recognizing body they are members or affiliates of. You can look at the list of members on each of these sites. WES (World Education Services) would be listed under NACES, as Scholaro, would be listed under AICE. Most schools and companies have their own policies they follow regarding credential evaluations acceptance, so it is important to check with them.
