Facilitating licensure with Credentials Evaluations

The NCEES Credentials Evaluations service reviews the educational background of applicants against the NCEES Engineering Education Standard and Surveying Education Standard. Applicants are individuals applying for licensure with a U.S. member licensing board who do not have a degree from an ABET-accredited program—usually one from outside the United States. NCEES submits a report to member boards, noting any areas of deficiency in education relative to the standard. Boards then use the evaluation to help decide on the applicant’s eligibility for licensure.
