According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees [UNHCR], worldwide displacement is at a record high due to wars, civil strife, religious persecution, economic migrations, and natural disasters. Without proper documentation of studies, refugees are at a serious disadvantage when pursuing further education. The presenters will define the problem and offer best practices for admission of persons with unofficial or non-verifiable credentials.
