Do I need a credential evaluation to apply for H-1B status?

The H-1B regulations require a credential evaluation for all non-US degrees. A credential evaluation is an evaluation by a US credential evaluation organization that confirms the foreign degree is the equivalent of a US degree in the same or similar field. There are many different organizations that can issue credential evaluations; each organization has its own procedures, requirements and pricing structures. While FSIS cannot recommend or endorse any specific credential evaluation company, many people for whom we file petitions choose to obtain evaluations from Morningside, One Earth, Park or Trustforte.
