Based on your selection, you should choose a Document-by-Document evaluation. View sample report.

This report is suitable for freshman admissions when advanced standing or transfer credit is not expected, employment applications, and submission to U.S. immigration authorities.

A Document-by-Document evaluation identifies and describes each of your credentials. It contains:

  • The name of the credential
  • The requirements for entry
  • The program length
  • The equivalency in terms of U.S. education

We recommend the Document-by-Document International Credential Advantage Package (ICAP); this means we will store your verified transcripts in addition to your evaluation report for easy sending later. In addition, you will receive a WES digital badge you can use to display your verified credentials on social media sites like LinkedIn.

Note: Please confirm with the institution to which you are applying that a Document-by-Document evaluation is sufficient.
