The Electronic Database for Global Education (EDGE) is a valuable resource for evaluating educational credentials earned in foreign systems, whether the purpose is ultimately for admission into an institution of higher learning in the U.S., to obtain employment, to establish visa eligibility, or to qualify for additional professional qualifications.
When education standards change, new credentials are awarded, or foreign education systems are reorganized, AACRAO EDGE utilizes the expertise of the International Education Standards Council (IESC) to review and update our recommendations. The Council is composed of professionals who have worked in higher education as well as private credential evaluation firms, so you can be confident that the recommendations presented are appropriate, thorough and representative of the varied viewpoints held within higher education.AACRAO EDGE's online format allows for dynamic updates when education systems/credentials change.
