Frequently Asked Question

  • Can I pay the fee directly at the university or anywhere nearby?

Ans: No, MG University has made all fee payment online. You could pay at the nearby internet cafe, but they may charge you extra and there will be a long wait time at busy hours.

  • Can I ask the university to send the transcript directly to WES or any institutions?

Ans: Yes, however, if the institution is outside India it can take up to a month to reach them and you won’t be able to track it. Therefore, it is always better to get the transcript to your address and use DHL or another good courier for faster delivery with tracking.

  1. I am based outside India and need the transcript of BSC degree marklist from MG University Kottayam. Will they accept by post my application?Which address can I send the documents by post? I only need the marklist so should I still be sending the degree certificate too.

    1. It is a very busy place and not sure if you send by post it will reach right department. Better ask someone here to submit the application on your behalf. Only copies of certificate required, not the original.

    1. WES is an educational credential validation service for US and Canada. I don’t think it is required for any other countries.

  2. Do I need to apply transcript again for WES if I already have one ,but not attested? Or i should only apply attestation of all marklist / each year degree certificates ??

    1. As per the new WES process, they will accept a transcript sent directly by the university. So yes, you need to apply for a new one and ask University to sent it to WES.

  3. For WES application transcript which option do i need to select…. option for attestation/genuineness varification of each copy of marklist OR each copy of degree certificate ???

    1. As detailed above you should go for Official Transcript/Genuineness Verification: each copy of degree certificate

  4. Does MG university give transcripts in sealed envelope directly to the applicant ? Does the transcript needs to be typed and given to the section in CD?

    1. Sorry, my last responce was incorrect. You need all sem marklist + degree certificate both side + attested copy of SSLC book.

  5. Hi,
    I am taking the transcripts for the second time as it was sent directly to Wes by me the last time.
    1. Is there is fast track option ( any other courier service other than Indian Post ) to be sent to WES directly from the University ?
    2. I remember creating the CD last time , Is it not required anymore ?
    3.What is maximum timeline that the transcripts would reach WES canada with the current option available?
    4. Is the document list to be carried to the university different from the post that you have initially mentioned? ( Copy of All sem marksheet + degree certificate + Attested SSLC certificate + Wes academic form)

    1. 1. MG University uses only India Post. You can ask them if speed post is available.
      2. No CD required
      3. 3 weeks for University to prepare it and another 3-4 weeks for India Post to reach Canada.
      4. It should the same.

    2. Hello Shilpa,

      What is the reason you are requesting for transcripts the second time ? Was it rejected by WES when you had sent it to them directly ?
      I am planning to obtain the transcripts from MG University and send it to WES directly via a good courier service.


  6. Hello MKerala,

    Request you to advise on the following two points:

    1. I need to obtain the transcript of my B-Tech mark-sheets from MG University, Kottayam. In the e-payment portal of MG university for the fee payment, I could see the following 2 possible options:

    Attestation/Genuineness verification of each copy of Degree certificate
    Fee for official transcript of marksheets/syllabus/Academic transcript

    Which option should I choose for the fee payment ?

    2. Does the above options really matter, as the fee for both the options are the same – Rs.2000 ?

    1. It depends on your purpose. For WES select “Genuineness verification of each copy of Degree certificate”. Check with the institution who asked you to submit the same.

  7. Hi,

    Thanks for the above information. I am completed 10th grade under CBSE, So what can be submitted instead of
    “Gusseted officer attested copy of SSLC Certificate”

      1. Great! Thanks. One more question.

        WES requires only ‘Marksheets/Statement of Marks’ to be submitted directly from University, Hence the drop-down menu to be selected should be
        ‘Fee for official transcript of marksheet/syllabus/academic transcript’ right?

    1. They didn’t ask me for it. Only photocopies are needed. But it is good to carry at least Degree certificate with you.

  8. Attestation/Genuineness verification of each copy of Degree certificate
    Fee for official transcript of marksheets/syllabus/Academic transcript.
