Education Credentials Assessment (ECA) for all degrees?


Post 1 month applying to WES, my case was kept on hold last week as they want my 4 year B-Tech certificates too which was from India. When I called WES, they asked me to send a message from their contact page requesting to remove bachelor’s degree details from my WES account and I did send them a message. But today the same WES sent a mail saying “Applicants submitting a Master’s Degree or Postgraduate Diploma for evaluation, must also provide bachelor’s degree and WES cannot complete an evaluation without these documents. The only exceptions where your bachelor’s degree documents are not required are: Master of Education, Master of Engineering, Master of Philosophy, and Master of Technology.”

This is strange, where WES is requesting doc’s differently from person to person and not sure why USA Master of Science degree isn’t added to their list of exceptions.


Try another agency concurrently (BCIT, Univ. or Toronto etc.) and see what they say.


Thanks for posting this. Hopefully people will read his before submitting Docs to WES.


What is the timeline for getting only Masters degree from US evaluated compared to getting both Master and Bachelors ( India ) evaluated ?


Depends on how slow the Indian university is in mailing the transcript. Otherwise it’s almost the same.


Thanks for the information


Hi Harsha,

Did you get any response from other agencies? Did they also asked about your bachelor degree.



I Have Completed my BSc Chemistry (3 Years) from Magadh University- Bihar and then MCA (3 Years) from VTU - Bengaluru.
I would like to know whether both my degree transcripts would be needed or my MCA alone would do.
The problem is that there is very less support from Magadh University regarding the issuing of the transcript.
Now what I’m looking for is whether of the 5 designated organizations evaluating eca, is there any 1 which would just evaluate based on my MCA and not ask for my BSc transcripts. If so please do let me know which one of them.
Would be of great help.
