If your evaluation is for an immigration visa application, it is important that your evaluation equivalency be relevant to your prospective employment. There are primarily two types of evaluations: 1) Academic Evaluations and 2) Work Experience Evaluations. In general, if your non-US degree is equivalent to a US degree that is directly related to the job you will do, you will only need an evaluation of academic credentials. If your degree is not equivalent to a US degree, or if it is in a field outside of your prospective employment, a work experience evaluation may be necessary. If you are unsure which type of evaluation you need, please submit your documents using our online application and request a preliminary assessment. A representative from Morningside will respond to you according to the processing time that you select.
Please refer to our Instructions page for a detailed list of the documents required for each type of service.
Please submit a detailed resume or CV. This should include the names of your past and present employers, position titles, dates of employment (month and year), and a list of the specific job duties of each position you have held. Please ensure that your resume or CV is organized by order of your official employers, rather than by your projects. Resumes or CVs organized by project are generally not useful for evaluation purposes and can delay the processing of your case.
All documents should be submitted as PDF, JPG, or Word attachments. Please note that emails containing a large number of attachments or very large image files can be blocked by sending and receiving email servers. As such, we recommend that you condense your documents into as few attachments as possible. If your files contain images that are very large in size, we recommend that you shrink the file sizes before attempting to send them.
If you need to submit multiple evaluation requests for different individuals, please send each candidate’s documents in a separate email along with a copy of the Evaluation Request Form for each candidate.
For individual clients, Morningside can only complete a case request after receiving payment information. For a new request, please complete the payment section on our online application. If you have already submitted a request but have not yet provided payment information, please wait for a Morningside representative to contact you with your case number and the cost for the service. You may then submit payment information using our online payment portal.
If you prefer to pay by check or money order, please submit your Evaluation Request Form and documents to email@example.com and wait for a Morningside representative to contact you with the Morningside case number and our preliminary assessment.
The processing time for your case depends upon the type of service you request. Standard processing for academic and in-house work experience evaluations requires three business days. Next day processing and same day processing are also available for academic and in-house work experience evaluations. Please note that same day requests must be received before 1pm Eastern time.
Expert opinion letters generally require 3-5 business days for completion. Rush processing may also be available depending on the field and the particular requirements of the case. If you have a specific deadline for receipt of your expert opinion letter, please include that in your initial case request so that we can advise you of the feasibility of the project when we provide our initial assessment. Please note that same day processing is generally not available for expert opinion letters.
The processing time for translations services depends on a variety of factors, including the language combination, word count, and formatting involved. Standard processing generally requires 3-5 business days. Rush processing may also be available. For larger projects, a Morningside representative will advise you of the processing time required for completion of the translation. Please note that same day processing is generally not available for translations services.
