Am Having Issues With Wes by ruky8(m): 6:11pm On Apr 06, 2016
Hi guys . need your help on this. I applied to Wes to have my transcript evualated, paid the required evaluation fee, about 290 dollars after which my school sent my transcript to Wes via dhl. Five days later Wes sent my credentials back to my school for verification and my document has been with my school for a week now. So I went to my school to find out why they've not verified and replied Wes, they said Wes is suppose to pay them 100dollars before verifying my credentials so they emailed Wes to remit the money to the school account two days ago but Wes is yet to reply my school. So today I called Wes on phone with the number on their site, told them my reference number and my problem, but they said they don't pay schools to get verification done ,that they have never paid any school and they are also yet to see the email my school sent. No my problem is Wes doesn't pay school and my school is wait on them to remit a hundred dollars if they don't see d money in the schools account they won't touch my document. Please how do I go about it?? And has any one had similar issue in the past. Please your advice urgently needed because the schools am applying to is waiting on my verified transcript from Wes and application deadline is almost near. Thank you.

Waiting from verification from your institution means Wes has sent your certificate and raw scores to your school to verify. Your documents is currently with your institution and they need to write verify on it stamp and email it back to Wes. You will have to go to your school to ensure they send it back to Wes. Mine went through same verification process , spent two weeks at my institution because my school wanted Wes to remit 100dollars to the schools account, I called Wes and they informed me theyve never played any school for verification that candidate are to make payment if the school insisted. I ended up paying my school a 100 us dollars after paying wes 291 dollars for the initial evaluation. It was after I payed my school that they verified my document and emailed it back to Wes. After which it took Wes 7 working days to complete my transcript evaluation. So my dear go to your school and tell them Wes has sent ur credentials back for verification and you don't know why they haven't verified. Same office for applied for transcript will tell you what do so it will be verified. All the best.

Hi Boss
Although this post is more than a year old, I am happy to have come across it as I am currently in this same situation you were in last year.
After paying $302 for WES to evaluate my transcripts, they informed me just on 17/07/2017 that they have sent verification request to my schools after a week of receiving my documents. I am aware that WES sometimes send email for schools that make use of that for verification) and regular hardcopy mail too.
Please from your experience, it takes how many days/weeks for the regular hardcopy mail from WES to get to the school in Nigeria? I need to know this so that I can know when to go and sit on their neck in my schools so that they can verify and reply WES on time as I'm having less than 3weeks deadline for the school I'm applying to to receive the evaluation report from WES.
Thank you in anticipation

Re: Am Having Issues With Wes by NeeYoh(m): 7:54pm On Jul 19, 2017
FYI: You can send your Degree certificate photocopy via fax to WES (No need for courier or Postal service). It's easier and economical also. Just download a fax app from Google playstore or Apple app store, buy credit units for sending fax document, get WES fax no from wes.org, include your WES Ref no in the cover note and document. Make sure the document is in black and white NOT coloured and less than 20mb. After sending the document, your document should be received and accepted by WES latest the following day.


You can try HelloFax app for Android, I haven't used it though but a friend confirmed it worked for her even with a coloured scan

@Neeyoh

I assume you have gone through WES verification process which they do by sending duplicate copies of the documents they received back to the issuing school to verify and confirm the authenticity.
Please from your experience, it takes how many
days/weeks for the regular hardcopy mail (request for verification) from WES to be received in Nigeria?
Any idea if WES makes use of Courier services 'speed post' or the ordinary snail mailing?

From my experience. about a week from when WES update your profile to awaiting verification from your school, you should notify your school about verifying your transcript. It's also better and faster if you have someone on the inside say an assistant registral. It will make it easy since you close to the deadline and verification may require you paying to your school again.
Hope this helps.

@NeeYoh, referring the bolded statement above, is it compulsory to have the document in black and white? Reason I am asking is because I already have a scanned copy of my degree certificate(coloured) and I intend to just upload it and send to WES through free fax services online. Please guide me with your knowledge.

2. Also, how do I include my WES Reference number with the degree certificate using the fax route?
3. Assuming I made a photocopy of my certificate, is it advisable and acceptable to use a pen to write my WES Reference boldly on it?
4. Would it be sufficient to type my Reference No in the the "Fax message" column.

Thanks for your time.

@manlikegb Anwering your questions:
1. The fax service requires that you upload a black and white scanned copy (based on the fax app I used). So you need to re-scan your degree certificate in black and white.
2. You can rename your scanned degree certificate photocopy as YOUR_NAME_WES_REF_NO (this was what I did).
3. I personally would not advise you write your WES Reference No on the photocopy.
4. Yes, you should also include your WES Reference No in the fax message short note.

You should receive an update say in about 1-2 days about your degree certificate being received and accepted by WES.

I'm still on it. After speaking with one of their CSRs last Friday I was told to ask the schools for an alternative email address where they can resend it. I contacted the schools again and sent it to WES yesterday Monday and followed it up with a call, but I was told it will take 3 working days to review the email addresses and get back to me.
Were your documents for WES USA or WES Canada? If it's USA, then it seems their is an issue with WES USA mail delivery to Nigeria as it doesn't take this much time for WES Canada mail to get delivered..."my observation so far"

Dear Ruky8 and Everyone experiencing the same problem, so sorry to know you are having this issue with WES Canada. I was in this same condition too but, I just got mine resolved. Here is the path to follow;
first, when you see awaiting verification from institution, it means WES have sent a request to your School and you will also see the VDR request mail in your inbox. Please note that WES mostly sends the VDR to your School my email. if you require hard copy to be sent to your school, WES will charge you for Courier service.
Confirm from your school academic office if there is any fees to send the verification document. if no fees then you are lucky, the officer in charge will send the document by email or fax without you even asking. If there is a fee to be paid, they will let you know. Just follow the school's procedure to pay such fees after which the officer in charge will send the request by email or fax.
If you want WES to receive the verification document from your school in a week time, then request from your school that they send through Courier service and you pay the money for the courier service and viola.
I wish this little information will be of help to everyone.

Please do you have an idea of the Courier service that WES normally use to send verification request if one pay for it? Is it trackable, as in, will WES give tracking number? Please I want to know as I'm required to pay $150 for courier service to send the VDR to my undergraduate schools.
WES is really frustrating me
Re: Am Having Issues With Wes by stripes16(f): 10:19am On Aug 16, 2017
Guy please I need your advise. I helped a friend verify his WAEC result and paid for posting to WES through UPS. 3weeks later, I visited ups website to check the status with the tracking number I was given by the agent but it was still saying last activity was in Ontario Canada pending. I contacted the agent and she told me to contact WES if the package was delivered to them. I sent a mail to WES with the tracking number I was given, still not gotten a response for over a week now. I don't have a number I can contact WES with. All other documents sent after then through another courier service has been verified except the WAEC result. Please what do I do

I just received an email from WES today 31, August 2017 about the Completed Evaluation of my academic transcript which has also been sent to the selected schools. So I guess it took like 2+ weeks for my undergraduate university to verify( A notification was sent to me by WES on 01,August 2017 stating that they already sent my transcript to my university for verification).
