A WES evaluation is recommended for international transcripts, however, you may simply submit your transcript/degree certificate if the degree earned is equivalent to a US degree (e.g., 4-year Bachelor).  

http://www.wes.org/

For undergraduate degrees, a WES evaluation is generally not required if all of the following are true:

  • Your degree title is or translates to “Bachelor”
  • Your degree was completed as part of a 4-year course
  • Your degree was earned from an institution accredited by the official regional accreditation board for your country or region

For graduate degrees, a WES evaluation is generally not required if all of the following are true:

  • Your degree title is or translates to a degree title recognized in the US (e.g., “Master”, “Doctor”, etc.)
  • Your degree was earned from an institution accredited by the official regional accreditation board for your country or region

 Regardless of whether a WES evaluation is needed, all documents must be provided with an official English translation when the original document is in another language.  Such translations are typically provided by the issuing institution; however, you may also obtain a translation using any of the following methods.

Please note, the Graduate School reserves the right to request a WES evaluation later in the admissions process if we are not satisfied with the information in the submitted documents upon their review.  A subsequent request for a WES evaluation will delay the processing of your matriculation, as your application package will not be finalized until it is received & reviewed.

 It is recommended if you have confirmation that your transcripts and other documents are received by Graduate School, please inform us (the department) via email at  ESMandCME_GradAdmissions@stonybrook.edu so we can follow up to expedite your matriculation process.
