MG University WES secondary re verification process


Based on the feedback we had on our last article How To Apply For Transcript From Mahatma Gandhi (MG) University, Kerala, we are detailing the process of WES asking for re-verification once you submit the transcript.

Why WES asking for secondary verification?

Below is the screenshot of an email from WES received by many applicants after submitting the transcript to WES.


As you can see, WES states “increase of fraud” as the primary reason for re-verification. WES directly contacts the university to evaluate authenticity of the documents submitted by both emails and by post.

How to complete the re-verification process?

  1. WES will let you know by email when it has asked the university for secondary verification.
  2. MG University will receive the request both electronically(email) and via post.
  3. MG University contacts the candidate via email within two weeks and asks to pay the re-verification fee.
  4. Visit the online payment portal and pay US $50 per course/degree re-verification fee.

6. Sent the payment receipt via email to MG University by responding to the payment request.

Example email from University

“As per reference, a candidate has to remit $ 50 (Fifty U. S dollars) each for sending re-
verified Official Transcript/Marklists/Degree Certificate, per course, to WES.

Hence you are directed to remit $50( Fifty US dollars) through e-payment mode and
send the soft copy of the receipt to the email ID of the section given below immediately. Your
reverification statement will only be sent to WES after receipt of the e-payment receipt for the above said

Note: Pay $50 for one course (Official Transcript/Marklists/Degree Certificate). No need to pay $50 each for degree certificate, Transcript for the same course.

How long does it take to complete the whole process?

WES typically asks for secondary verification within 2 weeks of getting a transcript from MG University. University should contact you in another two weeks time for the payment. Once you made the payment, it takes about 3 weeks for the university to respond to WES and another week for WES to process. So in total, it can take about 6-8 weeks to process your WES evaluation.

Example timeline:-

11-Dec – WES asks university for re-verification

24-Dec – MG University sends the email for payment (within 2 weeks)

25-Dec- Online payment made and receipt submitted

15-Jan – MG university respond to WES email request (within 2-3 weeks)

22-Jan – WES process your evaluation report (within 1 week)

Do I need to visit the university for completing re-verification?

Not required as the university only need the fee to be paid online and receipt sent to them via email. Also, University will be responding to WES via email and no physical documents are prepared or send. This is a verification process between the university and WES. We only need to pay the $50 re-verification fee online.

Note: Above article is based on crowdsourced information from other applicants and readers of this blog. As the process could change from time to time, please check with university information counter.

  1. Hi Mkerala. MGU made me pay extra 100 USD for re-verification of my degree and PG certificates also…i requested them that only OT’s need to be re-verified but they insisted..later on they said degree cert’s cannot be re-verified as i had not applied for its verification in the first place…i did that also….in total i paid Rs. 33000 to MGU ( OT+Degree cert, OT+Degree cert) , half of which was not needed but still i did for getting the process done. Today i got a call from MGU stating that they re-verified OT’s which i had applied in 2015 for my WES ECA and not the OT’s i applied this year…. ARE THEY FOR REAL ??? They are saying WES asked them to re-verify the OT’s MGU had send in 2015 which they did, and today they got another re-verification request from WES for the current application which i made in the beginning of this year…Anyways i am planning to go to the university in the days to come and officially raise a complaint against the lackadaisical efforts of the concerned people…LORD HELP ME….

    1. Part of the problem is with WES too. Even though WES asks for only Transcript from university and aks us to send a copy of the degree certificate, when they ask the university for re-verification, they ask to verify both transcript and certificate. Since the copy of the degree certificate was not issued by University, they will not verify the same and hence ask you to apply for genuineness verification.

      Hopefully, you can sort out everything at the university directly.

      1. I submitted two separate applications. One for Official Degree Transcripts and the other one for Degree Certificate Genuineness. Both are at the processing stage.

      2. I have taken up the matter with the VC’s office. Hopefully i will get justice…will keep u posted… Thanks for the guidance

      3. Official transcript re-verification happened in less than a day’s time after all the mess up and status updated in WES account also….When i send email as grievance to the VC’s office out of desperation, things happened super fast…..I am still very angry that they made me pay extra 17k on account of degree certificates verification… took 6 months in total… section is hopeless…..The Section officer is an entitled rude person who finds sadistic pleasure in testing our patience……PPl don’t budge to these people’s polite with them, but if they purposely mess with u like what happened with me, escalate the issue with higher authorities….Best wishes

        1. Hi, can I get the email ID of VC office? My situation is also same and at present I am in out of Kerala. It will be helpful if you share the contact details so I can get in touch with them. Thanks in advance.

  2. I have submitted the receipt for re-verification of degree certificates on 17 March to
    as mentioned in the mail sent by MGU .How do i get an update on this?The University number is not reachable either.
    Can someone help me out.

    1. You can try to contact university through phone or email. If they are not responding, visiting the university to enquire is the only option.

      1. You can contact the Assistant Registrar of M.G. University @ 9495063375. He will direct you to the concerned department after noting your queries or the concerned department will contact you back and will let you know the current status of your application. You can save that phone number and later on keep contacting them for getting further updates.

        Hope this will help you. Let me know if it helped you.
