Document Requirements for India

On December 1, 2018, WES modified the document requirements for applicants educated in India. WES requires all documents to be mailed directly to WES by the institution that issues them. WES does not accept documents in sealed envelopes that are forwarded to WES by applicants themselves, colleges, agents, consultants, or other third parties.

Why is this change happening?

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

Who is affected by this change?

This change applies to all WES 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 WES reference number was issued on or after December 1, 2018, the new policy applies to you. If your WES reference number was issued before December 1, 2018, the new policy does not apply.

What should you tell 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 WES.

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 WES receives the attested mark sheets directly from your institution.
