Our Research Methods

Morningside’s reputation for quality is built upon the advanced research methods we apply to each and every evaluation report that we produce. In reviewing a candidate’s educational and professional credentials, Morningside’s experienced evaluators consult a wide range of higher education resources, including university publications, contacts at foreign institutions, advisories from foreign academic and professional societies, and third-party resources like PIER workshops and the AACRAO Edge database. Morningside also consults with a broad network of university professors and industry experts in order to assess the proper US academic equivalency for a candidate’s professional work experience, and to conduct determinations of specialty occupation, specialized knowledge, business necessity, and extraordinary ability.

Our driving goal is to provide clients with the most accurate US equivalencies for their foreign academic and professional credentials, and to do so in a way that facilitates our clients’ entry into the US workforce, higher education, and professional associations. Fine-tuned over more than fifteen years of business in the evaluations industry, our robust research methods serve as the foundation upon which our institutional acceptance is built.
