I decided to use IERF to have my degree from a university in Spain evaluated. The program is for American teachers so all the official transcripts are sent in English. I sent all my official documents to IERF and was told that I needed to request the transcripts in Spanish and then translate them into English before they could complete the evaluation. As a professional teacher with over 8 years... Read more

The service they provide is a farce. Disqualified my Canadian credentials??? I don't think so... The Canadian education system is far more superior to any other education system. Perhaps they needed to look at the transcripts and collateral information online.... This company needs to be investigated as it exploits foreigners. Will be launching a more formal complaint to eliminate this type of... Read more

This company is the worst one which doesn't take responsibility for its own action. The evaluators lack the knowledge and skills and do it all wrong, they have no clue what they are doing. If you contact them after 90 days regarding concern, you are out of luck. The company is more concerned about the fee, fee and more fee than about their customers. Even the managers are unprofessional,... Read more

Note that IERF Office Manager is Rachael.I dont think it matters what location this office is because IERF is just useless. I filed with IERF to get my college transcripts evaluated from the country I am from located in the Pacific Ocean. My fault not reseraching about IERf and blindly just trusting a referral. Truth be told IERF does not know what they are doing. If IERF claims to be a... Read more

I had several problems arise when I submitted my transcript from a different country to their Culver City office (6133 BRISTOL PKWY, CULVER CITY, CA 90230). I call, and I get the same *** answer: "Please send it by mail, email, fax"... They drive you crazy for you to drop it eventually, but don't be discouraged. They provide a service, you pay, and YOU need to get assistance if you are NOT... Read more

International Education Research Foundation (IERF) was used to obtain credentialing for my husband who received his training in physical therapy in the Philippines. IERF received all the necessary documentation to complete his application on January 4, 2011. Their website lists three months as the time frame for evaluation completion. It has been nearly six months, and we have yet to receive his... Read more

I was born in the USA, hold a bachelors from a US institution and did a full international program overseas at one of the worlds top 100 universities. I come home to find that my degree is not recognized by the US Government and must be evaluated for federal employment purposes. The government website links me to a number of evaluation consultancies, charging astronomical fees to compare my... Read more
