Reports & Fees Services Required Documentation Important Information Evaluation reports are prepared only when all required documentation is received. This includes an application for evaluation, full payment and all requested academic documents. Incomplete or insufficient documents will delay the process. Please read and follow all application instructions carefully. Regarding refunds: If you request a course-by-course evaluation and One Earth determines that your institution is not equivalent to a recognized (accredited) institution, only a general report will be prepared and One Earth will refund the difference in evaluation fees ($65). This is the only time a refund may be issued; all other fees are non-refundable. Evaluation Reports Our reports include the name of institution, recognition (accreditation) in home country, years of study, qualification received or expected, equivalent U.S. qualification and overall grade point average converted to a U.S. 4.0 grading scale. The Course-by-course evaluation also includes a listing of each individual course taken with equivalent U.S. credit and grade. Please check with your institution to determine the type of report required. Additional copies of evaluation reports can be requested at any time for $20 each. Please indicate number of copies needed on our application form. General Evaluation ($75) A general evaluation offers an overview of a student’s study. The general evaluation report is typically prepared for: • Students who have completed secondary school and will be applying to the university as a first-year student • Those requiring an evaluation for immigration or employment purpose • Students who have completed a post-secondary (university) degree in their home country and will be applying to a U.S. institution as a graduate student (masters, Ph.D. or professional specialty) Course-by-Course Evaluation ($140) A course-by-course evaluation includes the same information as a general evaluation as well as a listing of each individual course taken and the equivalent U.S. credit and grade. The course-by-course evaluation is typically prepared for: • Students who have completed some post-secondary (college or university) work outside of the U.S. and will be applying to a U.S. institution as a transfer student (seeking to transfer previously earned credit towards a U.S. degree) • Students who have completed a post-secondary (university level) degree in their home country and will be applying to a U.S. institution as a graduate student (masters, Ph.D. or professional specialty) Revised Evaluation Reports Revised evaluation reports are prepared for students who have a previous One Earth evaluation report based on coursework or a degree in progress and would like an updated evaluation report based on completed credentials (final transcripts of study and/or degree certificate). If you have new or additional study at an institution or in a program not previously evaluated, a new (full price) evaluation report should be requested.
