    Hello. I have to following situation. I just got my bachelor degree in Accounting in US with 127 credits. I also have a master's degree in Economics from another country, and the diploma was evaluated by SpanTran as equivalent to US MS in Economics. But I did not transfer any credits from outside degree toward my degree in US. What can I do in this situation? Can I still submit both degrees and meet the 150 requirements? Any suggestions? Thank you beforehand.

    Hi, you should have your evaluation agency send your master's evalution directly to CBA. I had similar situation where I took my undergrad in a foreign country and I used World Education Service to evalution and send scores to CBA. Hope this helps

    I did similar to you and had my foreign credits evaluated and sent to the CBA. They assessed me at 176 hours and all requirements fulfilled so I could sit for the exams.
    Can you advise from your experience, did you need to resubmit anything to CBA once you had passed the exams or was the single transcript evaluation enough?

    Thanks!

    Hi Lvenochek, If that question is @ me – then no, my degree is outside U.S., no U.S. schooling at all.
