About the Degree Equivalency Tool:
The accuracy of your degree equivalency depends on the information you enter.
This tool includes degrees awarded by recognized degree-granting institutions. Our database is continuously updated with new information. If your particular degree or institution is not currently listed you may still apply for an official WES credential evaluation and our evaluation team will research your credential.
The free WES degree equivalency is for your information only. Since it is not based on verified documents, it may not be used for any official purpose or as proof that you have attended an institution or earned a degree.
The above does not change anything I have said so far. Nothing at all.
If when you checked you saw that your institution is not listed, why you would you still go ahead an pay WES......without first contacting them just to make sure that they will positively assess your degree?
You just went ahead an paid them your money....just like that?
The statement above clearly indicates:
"This tool includes degrees awarded by recognized degree-granting institutions.
"If your particular degree or institution is not currently listed you may still apply for an official WES credential evaluation and our evaluation team will research your credential.
So, not only was your institution not listed in the tool....but when WES did their research of your institution, their research confirmed that your institution is indeed "unrecognized" (which is likely why it was not listed in the tool in the first place) and hence why they stated in your report "Bachelor's Degree from non recognized Institution
The above statement from WES is essentially saying that if you have a degree from an institution that you know to be a recognized institution and the institution is not listed in the tool you can still feel free to go ahead and submit your degree for evaluation. Once the institution is indeed recognized, WES' research/investigation will show that your credential will be positively evaluated.
People who are using these ECAs expect to get a positive assessment from them, you on the other hand seem like you knew in advance that your institution wasn't a "legitimate/recognized" institution but still went ahead with paying for the evaluation hoping that the evaluation would say the opposite.
If you know that your institution is a legitimate/recognized institution, then all you need to do is contact WES to clarify this. Maybe you could have the dean and/or register write a letter confirm that the institution is indeed a recognized institution......good luck with doing that though.(a)
By the way, how long has this institution been around for?(b)
Does the institution have any accreditation from local authorities?(c)
Does the institution have any accreditation from international accreditation bodies? (d)
Does the institution have any ties with any internationally known university?(e)
Are degrees issued by the institution usually accepted at other foreign universities?
(there is also the option of using the other ECAs to do your evaluation.....which of course is gonna cost you more time and money)
