The VBOA will consider a degree or coursework earned at a non-accredited institution or institution located outside of the United States but the degree or coursework must be evaluated by one of the following VBOA-approved education evaluation firms first.
Candidates will need to have an official application on file with the VBOA before an education evaluation is sent by the chosen evaluation firm. If candidates elect to receive the results of the evaluation with the intent of forwarding them to the VBOA once an official application has been completed, the evaluation results must remain sealed until received by the VBOA.
