    Hey folks,

    Quick question regarding the requirement or preference of 4 year degrees by most of the majors. I currently hold an Australian degree which 3 years is usually the norm and I'm interested to see if recruitment would not recognize it as such.

    If you guys have any insight or past experiences, it'd be much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Degrees from Trump University are not recognized.

    Sorry to bring this back from the dead but any recommendations on which NACES member they opted and processed with?

    Thanks!

    Delta suggested using Josef Silny & Associates, Inc., to validate my Australian degree. Very easy process. They are a NACES member.

    I know at my carrier we have a subcontractor that investigates the program and institution under NACES.

    I know a shady fellow who purchased a degree from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buxton_University

    I would love to be a fly on the wall when the airline gets the report back from the subcontractor.

    They didn't check that before the interview process? Strange!

    I'm sure they will. Not sure if he's interviewing or not.

    We run the NACES stuff pretty much off the bat.

    Thanks for the help so far guys.

    Any advice to what extent of the level of accreditation you have to get? Document by document or course by course?

    DOCUMENT-BY-DOCUMENT evaluation is what Delta asked for.

    Yeah... I went to the most US-like college in Ukraine at the time. US curriculum, books, professors etc. Solid education, helped me much in life, but still a piece of useless paper as far as checking the box is concerned, since the place never had the full and proper ukrainian accreditation as the curriculum was lacking the allimportant things like the History of the Ruling Party and the History of the Ukraine-centric parallel Universe.
    Oh well, gotta go splurge on something like online Daytona State degree or sumsuch I suppose.

    That stinks.

    I know a few people who went to Florida's "New College", which is a state school that doesn't give grades but written evaluations.

    Might be a good school, but I can't imagine that format makes it easy to apply for grad school or jobs.

    That must be a very long transcript. Is the GPA measured in reams?

    Don't know. What I do know for folks applying for professional or grad school via "clearing house" processes like for Med or Vet school have to jump some hurdles to compensate.
