Hello,

I am interested in applying in Masters degree from USA. I have pursued B.Com degree and along with it pursued this professional course called Chartered Accountancy till IPCC ( Intermediate level AKA IPCE ). Usually most of the USA universities require a 4 year US equivalent degree. So my doubt was will IPCC be considered as a degree? I am only asking for USA masters degree evaluation only.

Hello,
I have completed a degree in Batchelor of Fine Arts from RLV college which is affiliated with MG university My course was a total of 4 years from India.


In our college's academic system, 1st and 4th-year transcripts were issued by the MG university and the middle two years’ exams were conducted by the college internally, based on the university guidelines. Hence the mark list was issued by the college itself.


I have submitted 1st and 4-year university transcript and 2 and 3-year college transcript together for WES evaluation and it got rejected twice.



I then contacted the WES Canada help center, and got the following reply:
“World Education Services (WES) requires annual mark sheets / statement of marks issued and attested by the institution that conducted the examinations. The mark sheets / statements of marks must be sent directly to WES by institution in a sealed envelope that is signed or stamped across the back flap by the appropriate authentication officer. WES will not accept documents sent by colleges, students themselves, third party agents, or anyone else.”
With much difficulty and processing, I contacted the officials in my college and university and was able to send the requested files by mail to WES, abiding by all the requirements.



Does anyone know how to resolve this?

Hi. Writing from PH. I have a quick question. I just completed my Masters degree and ready to do WES now. As I was checking their tool for degree equivalency, I noticed that we need to indicate the years of our study. The problem is, instead of finishing my degree within 2 years -- allotted time of the University. I ended up earing it in 5 years. What should I indicate? The allotted time or the time I spent completing my degree.

Hello Moderator,

I did B.A,LL.B (5 years integrated) and was given a dual bachelors (4 years) evaluation by WES.
It freaked me out originally because I expected my ECA to give me a 'professional degree' evaluation.
But body of evaluation shows as follows:

Credential: Bachelor of Laws
Status: Recognized Institution
Major: Law

Then i did some research and realized that a 4 years bachelors evaluation by WES doesn't imply I found the following answer:

No matter what WES evaluation says, if it gives you an assessment of Bachelors in Law, it will be considered as a professional degree. Thereby implying that it is not up to WES to give you a professional competency. It's up to CIC.


I would appreciate for quick response.
Thank and have a good day

Hi there,

Thank you for sharing your question and situation with us.

"Credentials" often refer to academic or educational qualifications, such as degrees or diplomas that you have completed or partially-completed. "Credentials" can also refer to occupational qualifications. Credential evaluation is a process in Canada where a third party organization assesses the equivalent Canadian credential to your certificate, degree or diploma. You may wish to contact the organization you received your evaluation from, since there are a few different organizations that provide credential evaluation for school and for work.


If you are concerned about the process at WES, it is best that you follow the steps above and contact WES directly for information specific to your case. You can also find other organizations that provide credential evaluation services in Settlement.Org articles about credential evaluation for school and for work.

Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.

Sincerely,

Hi,

Me and one of my friend are from the same university & same course, also we have been to the university together to get our transcripts and the university provided the sealed envelopes to send it through the university's post office. We both followed the same process and we did everything simultaneously, we collected the sealed envelopes and sent it through the university's post office together like on same day and same time.
But my envelope gets rejected by the WES saying that it is not properly sealed and sent by the university and on the other hand my friend's envelope get accepted by the WES and is approves.

I am so confused and clueless that how it is possible. Please can anyone suggest what to do now, can I ask my university to provide me the payment slips as a proof or should I ask my university to mail WES that yes we have sent the documents. Or do I have to re do the whole process again and spend so much money again because I really don't want to spend so much money again.

Please help.
