    Hi everyone!

    I recently used ECE to evaluate my 3-year Australian bachelor's degree (Bachelor of Business), but unfortunately they only evaluated it as a 3-year undergrad degree in the US. I need to have my degree evaluated as equivalent to a US bachelor's degree for a professional board in the US.

    Does anyone have experience using a NACES-certified evaluator that evaluated their 3-year Australian degree to a US bachelor's degree? I heard the name WES being thrown around, but hoping to hear from your experience first-hand, if any.

    Thanks so much!

    Will your professional board accept any NACES evaluation or approved by the board services only?
    You need to get a list of approved by your board evaluation services.

    As for WES, I only heard good things about this evaluation service.
    If I'm not mistaken you can use their web site tool for unofficial evaluation.
    Did you try it?

    I'm betting that most US employers don't even know that OZ degrees are 3 year degrees. I think they're generally reviewed as being equivalent.

    This is a nice tip Lerner. I didn't know about this tool.
