The Association of International Credential Evaluators - Setting the Standard for Credential Evaluation

History

Since its inception in 1998, AICE has been responsible for developing and implementing the ethics and correct practices required by a profession that touches the individual lives of each of our clients, as well as our society as a whole.

AICE was founded in 1998 as a not-for-profit professional association dedicated to promoting standards of excellence in the field of international credential evaluation.

Up until December 28, 1973, international credential evaluations were provided by the U.S. Department of Education’s Foreign Credential Advisory Interpretation Service. With the dissolution of this Office, experts in the field generously applied themselves in establishing guidelines for applied research and the evaluation of international educational credentials.

Subsequently, there was a proliferation of credential evaluation services in the private sector and with the absence of regulations once enforced by a government agency, the development of professional ethics and principles for the profession was taking shape. This collective effort brought forth the establishment of AICE to ensure accuracy and consistency in credential evaluations provided by trained and experienced professionals.

AICE is proud to be recognized by the United States Department of Education and the United States Department of State as the leading professional association for international credential evaluation service providers in the U.S.
