Equivalency Recommendations & Guarantees
Equivalency Recommendations & Guarantees: The U.S. educational equivalencies recommended in ACEI evaluation reports are provided in accordance with established guidelines approved by the Association of International Credential Evaluators, Inc., the National Council on the Evaluation of Foreign Educational Credentials, and the International Education Standards Council (IESC) and represent the considered judgments of qualified evaluators. Pursuant to the Terms and Conditions set forth under the original application executed by Applicant, the Applicant has acknowledged and agreed to having been informed that ACEI evaluation reports are advisory only and that ACEI’s recommended U.S. educational equivalencies may differ or otherwise vary from advisories rendered or prepared by other third party academic evaluators or source institutions. ACEI evaluations and/or recommendations are not binding on any institution, agency or third party. Additionally, applicant reaffirms and acknowledges having been informed and agrees that (1) although ACEI shall use reasonable efforts to determine the validity of such information it receives, ACEI does not and cannot guarantee against submitting its report or evaluation and/or recommendations based on review of Forged Credentials or other fraudulently altered items (whether the same has been sent directly to ACEI by the source institution or directly by the Applicant) and (2) ACEI shall have no liability, duty, or obligation to Applicant, Applicant Parties (defined under Terms and Conditions Section 12) or any source institution in the event ACEI submits a report or evaluation based on its review of any information or record that is ultimately deemed to be a Forged Credential despite ACEI’s reasonable determination that the same was not Forged Credential at the time of initial submission or review. Without limiting any of the foregoing, ACEI does not guarantee that an applicant, agency, or any third party will agree with its educational equivalency recommendations and assumes no responsibility for judgments or opinions made by an applicant, agency, or by any third party which disagrees with its educational equivalency recommendations. In the event of any disputes between the applicant and ACEI, such disputes shall be resolved by Mediation (as more particularly described under Terms and Conditions Section 12) and governed by California law and shall be subject to exclusive jurisdiction of the Los Angeles County Courts without reference thereto. Without limiting any of the foregoing, the Terms and Conditions are deemed reincorporated herein as if restated in full.
