Work Experience Evaluations

Work Experience Evaluations

This type of report evaluates the individual’s previous work experience (and education, if applicable). AETS Work Experience Evaluations follow the USCIS “three-for-one” rule. This rule states that three years of work experience can be substituted for one year of academic study in order to equate the work experience to a U.S. Bachelor’s degree. (This equivalency is used for USCIS and DOL purposes only; the applicant cannot use the reports for admission into university programs based on work experience.) AETS’ Work Experience Evaluations are completed by PhD university professors with the “authority to grant college-level credit for training and/or work experience.” Our expert work experience evaluations feature an educational evaluation, if applicable, and an expert opinion from a ‘recognized authority’ (university PhD) advising the USCIS and DOL that the applicant’s education, and/or specialized training and work experience (using the USCIS “three-for-one-rule”) are equivalent to the completion of a U.S. Bachelor’s degree. AETS Work Experience Evaluations are consistently accepted by the USCIS, and have been for over fifteen years.
