Instructions

CES will only issue the Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) report once all supporting documents and the official academic record have been received and verified.

Your application requires both scanned copies of documents provided to CES within your online application (see below) and Official Academic Record sent to CES directly from your awarding institution (Step 4).

You must complete your online application and obtain your CES Student Number prior to having official documents sent to our office.

Notes

  • Submitting an incomplete application and/or documentation will delay the assessment process. 
  • Complete documentation must be provided for the program(s) of post-secondary study you wish to have assessed and verified. In most cases, CES will assess the credential selected without requiring documents for credentials you have previously earned. We do, however, reserve the right to request documents related to credentials earned prior to a higher award if we feel they support the assessment. 
  • CES reserves the right to contact the issuing authority at any time during the assessment process to obtain information about the program completed and/or verify the documents, irrespective of the method by which they are received. 
  • All documents submitted become the property of CES and will not be returned or released to you. 
  • Contact Us if you require clarification of our requirements.
