Degree Evaluation

TeresaBellucci
hopefully someone else has done this!
I moved back to the US a year ago and recently had my Swedish Bachelors Degree (BA in Psychology) evaluated by IERF (ierf.org) and they equate it to only 90 semester units! So apparently I need 30 more units to REALLY have a bachelors degree I can use here in the US.
Has anyone else had their degree evaluated? Is there a chance a different evaluating service will equate it to a bachelors degree in the US?
Thanks!

    but anyway you'll probably need to check with the Board of Psychology in the state you reside in to see how many of your credits will transfer. Be aware also that each state has their own requirements, though at the bachelor level they are pretty much the same. When you get into the post-graduate degrees and licensing, not all states accept the credits from each other. You should check with the Board of Psychology in each state you desire to practice.
