Notes To Candidates From IERF
It is essential that the evaluation is done off original documents. This is a board requirement for licensure. Applicants are advised to use secure mailing to submit their documents. Alternatively, they can arrange to have their institution of study send in official certified copies directly to our office.
- $185 for the detail report with course level identification, which I believe is the one required for most state boards
