Document Requirements for Indian Citizens as per WES official Website:

On December 1, 2018, WES Evaluation modified the document requirements for applicants educated in India & requires all documents to be mailed directly to them by the institution that issues them. This means that they will not accept documents sent by colleges (except autonomous colleges), applicants themselves, third party agents, or anyone else.

Why did this change happen?

Due to this increased incidence of fraudulent documents, they have decided to only accept documents in sealed envelopes that are mailed directly by the institutions themselves.

Who is affected by this?

This change applies to all applications for evaluation of Indian credentials submitted on or after December 1, 2018. This is the date you received a WES reference number. If your reference number was issued on or after December 1, 2018, the new policy applies to you. If your reference number was issued before December 1, 2018, the new policy does not apply.

What should you request to your institution?

Please request your institution to mail your attested documents directly to WES in a sealed envelope with institution stamps/seals on the back flap. The institution must mail the sealed envelope themselves. They should not give the sealed envelope to you or a third party to mail to us.

What happens if WES receives mark sheets sent by me or a third party?

The documents will not be accepted and your file will be placed on hold until we receive the attested mark sheets directly from your institution. We only accept documents in sealed envelopes that are mailed directly by the institutions themselves.
