Equivalency Services

MECOHE’S equivalency services aim to facilitate students who have earned their degrees from foreign educational institutions by providing them with equivalency of their academic credentials so as to enable their degree to be recognized and accepted in the Gulf region. This enables easy transfer of credits from any internationally or regionally accredited online university and any educational level, thus making way for lucrative and extremely exciting opportunities for aspiring professionals.

Through our equivalency service, we aim to verify the credibility of documents sent to the UAE from other countries whilst simultaneously evaluate qualifications as per quality academic standards. We play an extremely significant role in providing students with relevant information regarding the academic system applied for achieving equalization of their degree, diploma or certificate.

Our Evaluation Process

We offer three types of credit equivalency evaluation packages:

1. Course-by-Course Evaluation Report

Suitable for education, licensing and certification

  • Identifies and describes each degree, diploma or certificate
  • Indicates the periods of education
  • Provides an equivalency for each document
  • Lists all courses with semester credits
  • Provides a grade point average (GPA) on a 4.0 scale
2. Document-by-Document Evaluation Report

Suitable for education, licensing and certification

  • Identifies and describes each degree, diploma or certificate
  • Indicates the periods of education
  • Provides an equivalency for each document

Our evaluation programs provide you the flexibility to send your report and transcripts to institutions around the Middle East, at any time in the future.

Eligibility Criteria :

Students may transfer an unlimited number of credits to clear their degree, diploma or certificate requirements. They are, however, required to earn a minimum number of upper division credits in order to graduate. In order to equalize any academic qualification issued by an international education institution from countries other than UAE, students must provide MECOHE with the correct documents and information required as per our guidelines. MECOHE retains the right to reject an application in the absence of any required document or information.

After the student pays the required fee, MECOHE’s Equivalency Office starts a course-by-course evaluation of transfer credits. On completion, one copy of the evaluation is sent to the student while the second copy is sent to the student’s advising office. The information recorded through credit equivalency, including the transfer of courses, becomes part of the student’s permanent record. This way the student’s admission requirements and transfer course will be considered along with the credits when he/she applies to an academic program within the UAE region.

You can submit your equivalency request along with the application, affidavits and documents on: register@meoche.org
