WES Evaluation Reports
Academic institutions can use WES evaluations secure in the knowledge that they are based on valid documents and prepared by experts
using the most advanced evaluation information technology, research methods and conversion tools. The verified documents that the
WES evaluation is based on are available to academic institutions in one complete package, the WES ICAP: International
Credential Advantage Package.
The WES evaluation was designed with input from academic institutions and presents all the items that are essential
in making decisions on admission, placement and the transfer of credits in a clear and consistent manner.
WES policy and requirements on documents reflect the organization's expertise and its many years of experience with
international educational credentials. WES requires that documents be received directly from the institutions that issue them,
and prepares evaluations only after it receives all the necessary credentials in the required mode and format. When necessary,
WES submits credentials to be verified by the issuing institutions. Document requirements are specific to each country.
Educational institutions can benefit from WES document requirements and have these academic transcripts available to them trusting that they are verified. If you are interested in receiving a student’s transcripts, please advise them to order the WES ICAP: International Credential Advantage Package service.

- A list of all subjects completed at the post-secondary level
- A U.S. semester credit and grade equivalent for each course
- A U.S. grade point average (GPA) on a 4.0 scale
- A designation of the level (upper or lower) of each undergraduate course
