Our client was accepted into a traditional four-year engineering degree program in India as a second-year student. He completed the final three years of the program and graduated. After reading the educational evaluation from another consulting agency, the USCIS denied his immigration visa on the basis that he had actually completed a 3-year degree rather than a four-year Bachelor Degree.
Using extensive research material, CCI was able to issue a foreign academic credentials evaluation indicating that the client had indeed graduated from a four-year Bachelor Degree program. On appeal, the USCIS reviewed the information and concluded that the client did indeed have the U.S. equivalency of a four-year Bachelor Degree. His immigration visa was approved.
