International Degrees Accepted by ISM




ISM has compiled the following general list by country of degrees that are accepted as equivalent to a bachelor's degree earned in the U.S. from a school accredited by one of the six U.S. accrediting organizations listed with the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). (http://www.chea.org/Directories/regional.asp).

If your degree is not listed, it will need to be evaluated for equivalency. We recommend that you use the services of Educational Credential Evaluators (ECE): http://www.ece.org/. The "General" evaluation is all that ISM requires. The cost of the evaluation is the responsibility of the applicant.
