Document Submission Checklist

Please use this checklist as a guide to ensure that documents meet WES requirements. Documents not received as specified will delay your credential evaluation.

Remember to:


Carefully follow the document requirements for your country of education.


Use the “Academic Records Request Form” (optional)

BEFORE sending your documents:


Make sure that your transcripts are complete. Transcripts must show: all subjects taken, grades received for each subject, and for each year you were in the program.


Make sure that academic records include the correct spelling of your name. The WES evaluation will indicate the name and date of birth shown on your academic records.


Make sure that all documents that are sent to WES are clear and legible.

WHEN sending documents:


Make sure that your WES reference number is indicated on all envelopes.


Make sure that your transcripts are placed in an envelope that is signed and sealed across the back flap by the institution preparing the documents.


Send only academic records issued by recognized academic institutions. WES does not evaluate occupational or trade qualifications.

Please Do NOT send:


Personal photocopies of transcripts.


Original documents, unless specifically requested by WES.


Documentation regarding non-formal training or work experience.
