About Josef Silny & Associates

Josef Silny and Associates, Inc., International Education Consultants (JS&A) is a private organization founded in 1987. Our purpose is to serve foreign nationals who come to study, work or live in the United States. We evaluate and translate their foreign educational credentials and issue a report of equivalency in terms of the educational system in the United States. Our foreign credential evaluations and translations are used for high school, undergraduate, and graduate admission, immigration, employment, professional licensure, and other purposes.

In addition to our extensive knowledge of world educational systems, our multilingual staff of over 70 professionals understands the situation of our applicants because most of us have lived or studied abroad, and now reside in Miami, one of the most multicultural cities in the world. You will receive personalized attention and answers to all your questions.
