Credential Evaluation Service Agencies

ASHA requires internationally educated individuals who wish to apply for the ASHA Certificate of Clinical Competence in Audiology (CCC-A) or Speech-Language Pathology (CCC-SLP) to have their credentials evaluated by an independent foreign credential evaluation service. A listing of agencies that perform such evaluations is provided below to assist in locating an acceptable agency with which to work. ASHA requires that the educational evaluation be performed by one of the listed agencies but neither recommends nor endorses any of them.

When requesting a review of credentials for purposes of ASHA certification, applicants should

  • specify a course-by-course evaluation in American semester hours with specific notation as to those courses completed at the graduate level, and
  • request that the evaluating agency state the highest level of education completed.

To apply for ASHA certification, individuals must submit

  1. an official copy of the translated course-by-course evaluation received from the foreign credential evaluating agency, and
  2. all required documents and fees as detailed on Certification Information for International Applicants.

Once the application is reviewed by the ASHA National Office, additional information, such as course descriptions, may be required and requested from the applicant. For additional information on obtaining ASHA certification, please contact the ASHA National Office at 301-296-5700 or via e-mail at
