Foreign Credentials Approach (Out-Of-Country) (AK)

You need to login or register to save this route.


Arkansas does not automatically recognize educational credentials or licensure issued by another country. To pursue licensure via the reciprocity route, request a Reciprocity packet from ADE by emailing [email protected]. In addition to the standard reciprocity documentation, the foreign credentials approach requires (1) a transcript evaluation from an agency that is a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) or the Association of International Credential Evaluators (AICE) and (2) documentation of successful completion of the ADE approved assessment of English language skills exam (TOEFL).
