International Education Standards Council (IESC)
Our Contribution to International Education
Credential advice is modified when new studies of foreign countries' education systems have been undertaken. Based upon the research collected, new recommendations are developed and approved by this group of experts and then published within AACRAO EDGE providing advice for how best to understand foreign credentials in the context of the U.S. educational system.
Composed of representatives from public and private institutions of higher education alongside voices from multiple credential evaluation agencies, the grading scales and placement recommendations published within AACRAO EDGE represent a majority consensus across diverse groups well versed in international higher education.
