WES Evaluation Reports

Government agencies, academic institutions, professional licensing bodies and employers partner with WES to evaluate the credentials of candidates educated abroad. WES provides candidates with a convenient online application where they can obtain detailed instructions regarding required documents and track the status of their evaluations anytime. Completed WES Evaluation Reports can be accessed through AccessWES®, our secure online delivery system, or they can be mailed to you.

Evaluation Types

WES offers two types of credential evaluation reports: Document-by-Document Reports and Course-by-Course Reports. WES credential evaluations are based on authenticated documents received directly from the institutions that issued them. When necessary, WES sends documents back to the institutions that issued them for further verification.
