    If it is a bachelor's degree from an accredited university, it's accepted as equivalent to a bachelor's degree elsewhere.

    But if you are aiming for a job with employment visa in US, bachelor's degree is not enough. Expect to need minimum of master's degree + several years of experience in a STEM occupation which is in short supply in US to have any prospects. And then you have to compete for a job - sometimes with 1000 or more other applicants from around the world. (I know of one employer needing someone with minimum of master's degree plus 5-10 yrs experience in an unusual occupation who received 10,000 applicants within 24 hours of posting the opening. A friend who is a pharmacist advertised for a part-time pharmacist to assist him, state licensed, who received over 600 foreign applicants, and there is NO way part-time work ever qualifies for employment visa!)

    So what, specifically are you looking for here? Are you an American who studied abroad? Or...?

    Depends on what area of study you degree is in and what university you got it at.   For example a nursing degree may not qualify you for a nursing position in the US.  IF you can get a job.

    As far as graduate school. Best to contact the US university direct. Many international students attend Graduate school in the US

    Validity depends on who you are presenting it to. A school may be stricter than an employer.
