DEGREE GRANTING AUTHORITY
The State of California Department of Consumer Affairs is vested with the powers to issue state licenses to operate a university, the practice licenses of all kinds of professions from Doctors, Professional Engineers to the lowest level of a barber or a security guard. We realized that Credential Evaluation Service has grown into a very respectable profession and therefore, Credential Evaluation Services should be institutionalized. It has to be regulated to protect the interest of the consumers.
Hence, California University FCE voluntarily registered itself with the State of California Department of Consumer Affairs BPPVE to institutionalize its authority to grant equivalency degrees and academic certificates. This is our guarantee that the equivalency degree of the consumer’s foreign degree is equivalent to the degree granted by the regionally and nationally accredited colleges and universities in the United States of America.
California University FCE does not issue college degrees per se, but degree equivalency, which requires the same scope and breadth of knowledge as someone who has actually completed a nationally or regionally accredited college program.
California University FCE equivalency-degree evaluations are generally accepted for immigration as well as Federal, State and private employment arenas. Below are articles discussing equivalency-degree awards. California University FCE progressively promotes honesty, integrity as well as academic excellence in education.
An award (baccalaureate or equivalent degree, as determined by the Secretary, U.S.Department of Education, normally requires at least 4 but not more than 5 years of full-time equivalent college-level work. This includes all bachelors’ degrees conferred in a 5-year cooperative (work-study) program. A cooperative plan provides for alternate class attendance and employment in business, industry, or government; thus, it allows students to combine actual work experience with their college studies. Also includes bachelor’s degrees in which the normal 4 years of work are completed in 3 years.
