Hi Everyone,
Hope all of you are holding up better with this current situation.
I have one query about my studies in Canada. I have done Master's of Administrative Science from FDU (University), Vancouver, Canada and currently on my work permit since 7 months. Though it is a U.S.A governed institution it is fully accredited university offering PGWP and many people got their PR by accumulating the 30 points of Master's studies.
I have created my Express Entry profile by myself yesterday, and I noticed that I haven't got any points for my Canadian education. Instead getting 30 points for my Master's degree in Canada, I got 0 points. I tried verifying the information like Institution name, DLI number and all that but still its not upgrading my points.
I need an advice if anybody knows what should I do to get this 30 points.
Thanks in advance.

For these questions below I answered Yes for the 1st one, and No for the 2nd and 3rd one and now waiting for the update in points.

Am I on the correct pathway by doing this?

1 -Was this degree, diploma or certificate:
from a public post-secondary school, such as a college, trade/technical school, university or CEGEP (in Quebec)
from a private post-secondary school that operates under the same rules as public schools
a diplôme d'études professionnelles (DEP) or an attestation de spécialisation professionnelle (ASP) earned through a qualifying study program of at least 900 hours from a private school in Quebec, or
a Bachelor's, Master's or Doctorate degree from a Canadian private school that can legally award degrees under provincial law. (The student must have been enrolled in a study program that led to a degree as set out by the province.)
Help

2 - Was more than half the study program English or French as a second language courses?

3 - Did XXX study in Canada based on an award that required them to go back to their home country to apply their knowledge and skills? This includes some awards from Global Affairs Canada.

Why did you go to a US Franchise school in Canada? Now you may have to go through the trouble of proving that your university was indeed a Canadian Institution.
