My file has been placed on hold for verification. What does this mean?

World Education Services (WES) sends documents back to the issuing institution or authority for verification under two circumstances:

  • The received documents do not match the documents that are typically received from that system of education or institution due to differences in the format, content, or signatures.
  • In some countries and under certain circumstances or periods of time, a high number of fraudulent documents had been submitted to WES. As a routine part of our evaluation process, WES must obtain verification of the authenticity of the academic documents.
