About WES

We are a non-profit organization dedicated to helping international students and professionals achieve their educational and professional goals in the United States and Canada. Founded in 1974, we evaluate and advocate for the recognition of international education qualifications.

For 45 years, we have set the standard of excellence in the field of international mobility with our credential evaluations, research, and ongoing support for international students and skilled immigrants. We have provided credential evaluations to almost two million people worldwide. Our evaluations are widely recognized by more than 2,500 educational, business, and governmental institutions throughout the U.S. and Canada.

We want international students and professionals to succeed. That’s why we offer free tools and resources. Through WES Advisor, we publish articles on a wide range of topics about working and studying in the U.S. and Canada. WES Global Talent Bridge and our research and consulting services provide support to institutions that work with international students and professionals. The WES Mariam Assefa Fund, our high-impact USD$30 million philanthropic fund, supports organizations working to integrate immigrants and refugees into the economy in the U.S. and Canada.
