FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are your rates?

Specialized Course by Course evaluations for visa purposes are $199. Translations are $24.99 per page for all languages, up to 250 words/page.
How long does it take?
Once we start your order, it typically takes five business days for us to email you a draft. Standard mailing then takes five business days (US) or 8-10 business days (Canada). A variety of rush services are available, including same-day.
What is a General evaluation?
General evaluations include our analysis of your diploma, our assessment of the equivalent degree within the US or Canadian school system, our certification as to our evaluation accuracy, notarization and mailing to one address. A General evaluation is approximately 5 pages long.
What is a Course by Course evaluation?
Course by Course evaluations include our analysis of your diploma and transcripts/marksheets, our assessment of the equivalent degree and GPA within the US or Canadian school system, credit calculation, our certification as to our evaluation accuracy, notarization and mailing to one address. Course by course evaluations for immigration also include the education analysis section as required by USCIS for visa applications. Course by Course evaluations are typically 7-10 pages long.
What if I don’t like it?
If you’re not satisfied with your draft evaluation and we can’t fix it, simply cancel prior to mailing for a full refund of your evaluation fee (excluding rush fees).
Why are your competitors so expensive?
Many of our competitors process orders a lot like they did before the internet – via fax and Fedex. We’re a digital evaluation company, which means we can process your evaluations far more efficiently, keeping our prices to the lowest possible level. It’s why we’re ranked #1 in speed and #1 in price!
Shouldn’t I just get a General evaluation – it’s cheaper?!
It depends what you need your evaluation for. Generally speaking, employers and immigration services prefer more complete information about your degree, so we recommend a course by course evaluation. However, needs vary widely so we always recommend you determine what’s needed before purchasing. For ongoing education applications, course by course is strongly recommended.

We’re American Translator Association members and have a pool of worldwide, bilingual translators standing by.
