Wednesday | February 21, 2024 | by WES Advisor

Once you have applied for a WES credential evaluation, the next step is crucial: document submission and verification. For some applicants, this step can be time-consuming. But what if there was a way to speed up the process and get your credential evaluation report faster?  

There is, with Qualification Check (QC), our specialist verification partner. QC will work directly with your educational institution to verify your required documents. Upon completion of this verification process, QC will share the verified documents and the verification results directly with WES in a secure digital format. 

WES applicants can take advantage of this optional service as soon as they submit their application for credential evaluation. Keep reading to learn more about QC and how to make your credential evaluation process as smooth as possible.  

What is QC? 

Since 2010, QC has provided services for individuals, employers, recruiters, background screeners, and leading universities to verify qualifications and awards. With a directory of more than 50,000 source institutions in 195 countries, QC can quickly verify your academic or professional qualifications. 

QC verifies your qualification or award with the original issuing body, based upon the supply of the following information: the applicant’s full name, date of birth, dates of attendance, institution, course title or award, qualification type, and classification or grade. 

Getting verified with QC 

To start, you must first obtain a WES reference number. Create an account and submit an application to receive a WES reference number. Next, take your WES reference number and visit the QC website to sign up and begin the verification process.  

Note: Please ensure you are visiting the WES-QC registration form specifically, as pictured below.

  1. Create a new account and start your application on the QC website. (Please note, you will need your WES reference number to create an account with QC.) 
  2. Upload your official documents from your institution(s). (Please note, all correct documentation must be received before QC can begin the verification process.)
  3. Complete the consent form so QC can work on your behalf.
