If you are planning to study abroad, you might want to consider the vital information in this article. You should know that in the course of your application, you may be required to send your documents or transcript to WES for verification.

What is WES? In full meaning, it’s known as World Education Services. They are a nonprofit organization that perform credential evaluations for international students and migrants planning to study or work in the United States and Canada. It was founded in 1971 and based in New York, United States and Toronto, Canada.

As earlier stated, WES report will be required from you in the course of your admission process which must include your subjects (i.e Course of Study), hours and GPA. Most universities usually demand this report for the Admission process.

How To Send Documents Or Transcripts To WES

Usually, it takes students quite some time to processing their official transcript and degree certificate and sending it for WES evaluation. Well, that process has now changed!

As part of the recent updates, WES now will accept sealed envelop of documents or transcripts mailed directly by the institutions themselves.

This means that WES will not accept documents sent by international students themselves, or anyone else. Though these changes may be specified only for India.

The procedure for sending documents to WES is still the same. You will have to obtain a WES reference number by opening an account with them. And write this reference number on all the envelope(s) and other correspondence.

This document or transcripts must be properly sealed by your University and college. You can send them through FedEx, Post office, Electronic deliveries or through other International delivery systems. We suggest you opt for a fast deliveries system like FedEx or do post from private international delivery stores.

A Document or transcripts evaluation costs $100.00 and a WES Course-by-Course evaluation costs $160. They will evaluate and make your report ready and when you are applying to university or college, you can forward them by requesting WES to send your report to a specific university by paying between 20$ to 30$.

A WES Evaluation Report is usually completed within seven (7) working/business days of confirmation and review of the required applications, documents or transcripts and fees. A credential evaluation may take longer if additional information or verification is required and this may attract extra charges.
