Policies - Registry Standards - Document verification

Education awarded outside the United States

The PD Registry requires that all non-U.S. education be translated and evaluated by an accredited translation firm before it is accepted and saved. The translation and evaluation document from the translation firm will be accepted as documentation for the education level as evaluated. A copy of the original untranslated document is preferred but not required.

To be considered "accredited", translation firms must be a member of National Association of Credential Evaluation Services, Inc. (NACES) or another national or regional organization with equivalent standards.
