What is USCIS’s policy on using evaluations of foreign degrees for Green Card purposes?

ANSWER: 

USCIS has verified that the education evaluation system that it regularly uses to evaluate the equivalency of foreign degrees to a US degree is the AACRAO EDGE database (edge.aacrao.org/). While alternate education evaluations can be submitted to USCIS, they must be documented with evidence as to why the alternate evaluation should be considered instead of the EDGE evaluation. USCIS will consider alternate evaluations from sources other than EDGE only on a case-by-case basis.
