Admin, Can you elaborate on the following items, and what type of Evaluation is required for a Degree from India. U.S. master’s degree – as long as it is in the field required no additional documents would be required 4 yr bachelor’s degree + 5 Years of Progressive Experience 4 yr bachelor’s degree + 2 yr master’s degree ( India ) – with degrees in the same or related fields this will generally be considered the equivalent to a U.S. master’s degree with no additional documents required 3 yr bachelor’s degree + 3 yr master’s degree ( India ) – with degrees in the same or related fields this will generally be equivalent to a U.S. master’s degree with no additional documents required 3 yr bachelor’s degree + 3 yr master’s degree ( India ) – with degrees in the same or related fields this will generally be equivalent to a U.S. master’s degree with no additional documents required 3 yr bachelor’s degree + 2 yr master’s degree (India) – Generally this would be the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree + 1 year and would require 5 yrs progressive experience to qualify under the 2nd preference category: However, foreign credential evaluation using the following additional evidence could make it to EB-2, Master's degree equivalent Examples of comparable U.S. master’s degree programs requiring only one year to complete (indicating that a total of 5 years of undergraduate and graduate level education is sufficient); or Credential evaluations that provide a detailed comparison of credit hours completed by the beneficiary for the 3 year bachelor’s degree program with credit hours required by comparable U.S. bachelor’s degree programs. 3 yr bachelor’s degree + 2 yr master’s degree ( India ) + 5 yrs progressive, post-master’s degree experience – Generally the educational degrees would be determined to be the equivalent of a U.S. bachelor’s + 1 year and the beneficiary would meet the statutory requirement 3 yr bachelor’s degree + 2 yr master’s degree + 1 yr postgraduate diploma (India) – Generally this would be the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree + 1 year and would require 5 yrs progressive experience to qualify under the 2nd preference category. If the postgraduate diploma is determined to be progressive postgraduate education that is a continuation of the 3 yr bachelor’s degree or the 2yr master’s degree it is possible that this would be considered the equivalent to a U.S. Master’s degree and there would be no need to establish 5 yrs progressive experience If a master’s degree is required and the beneficiary does not have a U.S. master’s degree in the specified field of study the petitioner should be prepared to submit sufficient documentation to establish that the education that the beneficiary possesses is the equivalent to a U.S. master’s degree in the required field.s?

This question does not have a simple answer. For this reason we always review the education and a resume for all EB2 applications before they order. If a US masters degree or foreign equivalent is required hopefully the attorney indicated the field that the masters was in. If not, it could be a problem or a good evaluator can figure out how to put the puzzle pieces together. However, an evaluation would always be needed to make this work. The PERM requirements must be filled for an EB2 to be approved. Sheila Danzig, Executive Director http://www.TheDegreePeople.com
