World Education Services ECA Application

What is WES

WES, or World Education Services, was established in 1974 and is an American non-profit organization. It provides education certification for those who intend to study or work in the United States or Canada. It is the largest qualification evaluation company in North America, and its evaluation and certification reports are very commonly used in North American education institutions.

Usually WES certification refers to the WES academic degree evaluation and certification.

Applicable Individuals Why WES is Necessary

  • International Students

In recent years, more and more North American universities require international students to provide certified transcripts and degree certificates during the admission application process. In other words, they do not accept the transcripts that are stamped and put in a sealed envelope provided by the Chinese school, and they trust and recognize the transcripts and degree certificates certified by the third-party institutions. WES is the certification institution most students choose when applying.

  • Individuals who want to immigrate to Canada

In the process of Canadian immigration, many applicable programs require evaluations the applicant’s educational background. If the applicant’s study experience is completed in a country other than Canada, and would like to add more points via their educational background in the immigration evaluation process, then WES academic certification is an essential step.

WES Advantages

The WES degree certification process involves professional reviews of documents and the education system. Under strict document collection, verification, certification, analysis and quality management standards, more accurate certification reports can be made.
Strict review procedures have enabled WES certification to be recognized and favored by more than 2500 educational institutions, commercial institutions, authorized institutions and government agencies in the United States and Canada.

How to Apply

For students who have not completed their degrees, 2 parts are required to complete WES certification: WES official certification + CHSI certification;
For students who have obtained degrees, 3 parts are required to complete WES certification: WES official certification + CHSI certification + CDGDC certification

The WES certification process is extremely complicated. It not only involves WES, an international organization, but also Chinese Higher Education Student Information Network – CHSI and CDGDC. The required documents and materials are also relatively complicated. Many applicants who study abroad or immigrate have their certification process prolonged due to lack of related knowledge, which affects their education and immigration process negatively. Fortunately, we provide these types of professional service.


WES certification works by handing over the authenticity verification results of the school’s transcripts as well as the conversion of course credits to WES. WES works with CHSI and CDGDC to confirm the authenticity of transcripts and degree certificates, in order to counter the differences in the different education systems around the world.
After WES received the reports, they began to convert them into the American standard 4-point transcripts. In this way, the applicant’s intended school will know what level they are at.

How to Avoid Delays

To ensure the process of the WES degree certification application go smoothly, please refer to the following tips:

  1. Submit all required documents in accordance with the method specified by your country of education, written on the required documents page.
  2. Write your WES application number (reference number) on all envelopes sent to WES.
  3. Fill in your application form accurately and submit it after completion.
  4. When filling in the application form, make sure that your name is spelled correctly and your date of birth is accurate.
