WES Evaluation Reports

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.

Document-by-Document Report

  • Identifies, describes, and provides a U.S. equivalency for each credential
  • Appropriate for employment and immigration

Course-by-Course Report

  • Identifies, describes, and provides a U.S. equivalency for each credential
  • Lists all subjects with their corresponding credits, grades, and a calculated GPA expressed in U.S. terms
  • Appropriate for admission to higher education, professional licensing, or any other purpose where a detailed course analysis is required
