As of March, 2017, the Council for the Recognition of Professional Qualifications (SAEP) of the Greek Ministry of Education, Research and Religious Affairs has begun to grant recognition of professional equivalence of Hellenic American University degrees earned by graduates of Hellenic American College.

Following these decisions, graduates in degree programs in fields that lead to regulated professions have begun to apply for—and, as a recent case evidences—to receive a license of professional practice.

In a statement prepared for this news item, Hellenic American University President Leonidas Phoebus Koskos noted, "We are pleased for our graduates, of course, especially in light of the years of hard work and study they devoted to earning their degree. But just as importantly, this recognition comes a reward for the University's long-standing, unwavering commitment to academic quality. It is a commitment we have demonstrated to our American regulatory and accreditation bodies, and it affords us great satisfaction to have this commitment recognized by the Hellenic Ministry of Education as well."

The Hellenic American College Career Development Office can help graduates gather the required documentation and submit the relevant application in order to have the professional equivalence of their degree recognized.
