What Our Members Say About EDGE

"AACRAO Edge is a resource I access daily in evaluating international educational credentials. The online platform has proven to be essential to allow for ongoing credential evaluation, whether you are working remotely from home or in your office. Country profiles and sample documents are regularly updated and made readily available. I would highly recommend purchasing this resource if you are evaluating foreign educational credentials."

– Karee Head, International Admissions Specialist, University of Idaho

"As a recently anointed “Senior” level international credential evaluator with ACEI, I have found EDGE an incredibly helpful resource. The EDGE country profile overviews and credential advice have been instrumental in my training. I refer to EDGE frequently and find the information I need. Also, the PDF versions of the print publications of World Education Series are a plus for anyone who doesn’t have access to them. Though at ACEI we have the print publications, it’s nice to know that digital copies are available which come in handy especially now when we are working remotely and don’t have access to the physical library at our office."

– Yaixa Rodriguez, Senior International Credential Evaluator, Academic Credentials Evaluation Institute, Inc.


AACRAO EDGE, the Electronic Database for Global Education, has been the leading US resource for evaluating foreign educational credentials for more than 15 years.

EDGE provides valuable information that supports institutional decision-making in international recruitment, admissions, academic placement and the evaluation of international transfer credit.

The information in EDGE is extensively researched by professional evaluators using primary sources from each country. Grading scale translations and placement recommendations are vetted by the International Education Standards Council (IESC) and represent the consensus expert opinion in the U.S.

Each profile includes:

  • An overview of each country's educational system
  • An educational ladder detailing the common educational pathways
  • Common grading scales used within the country with US conversions
  • Academic credentials and placement recommendations for US placement
  • Institution lists, verification resources
  • Glossary of educational terms
  • ...and more
