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,

    I got email from WES stating that they sent re verification email to university in the month of May 2020. It’s almost 4th week now but I didn’t receive any email from my university for the verification payment. How can I check a status from University? Is there any way they will contact me.

    Thank you.

    1. Usually, they should contact you via email. However, due to lockdown, there might be delays. You can check with the university to know the status.

    2. Dear Anjan, did you complete your wes. When did the college contact you for payment. I am in the same situation almost a montha nd MG have not contacted me yet.

  2. Hi, WES asked for secondary verification from MGU on 19th May. I got the email from MGU (BCom) on 22nd May and I made the payment on the same day itself and shared the receipt with them. I called them after a week and was told that they replied to WES on 26th May. However, my application status still shows On Hold – awaiting verification from University. Any idea why this hasn’t changed to In Process?

  3. I received WES email for re verification on 23 March 2020. But not received any email from MG university for payment request so far. I have been trying to contact univeristy via phones and emails for weeks, but no positive responds. B.Tech civil engineering. Anyone here facing similar problems ? Any suggestion.

  4. hey
    i did wes re-verification payment and its for my BSc Computer science degree , Do any one knows to which mail i can send my documents please . Thanks

    1. University will contact you for the re-verification payment. You need to send it to the same email. The email is different for each department.

      1. They didnt contacted me for verification i went there and i did the payment by myself. I had 2 degrees mca and bsc . Mca re verification is been done and only bsc is pending i believe the staff forgot to do that . I tried to contact them mailed them i do have the receipts. But no replies yet. Without my bsc degre re verification my mca wont be accepted . I mailed my issues with fee receipts of my payments to couple of depts amd no repies yet.

  5. WES had asked for re verification on 4-03-2020. I kept calling university every other day and followed up with them. MGU sends a email to me asking for payment on 10-03-2020 and I did on the same day($50). And sends the verification back to WES on 11th March itself. MGU acted very promptly.

  6. Hi All,

    What i understand about the re-verification scene is that, on enquiry MG will ask to pay 50$ each for transcript and Degree certificate (so total of 100$), but the mail from MG asks for 50$ and all we need is to pay $50..right.. Thanks

      1. I had to pay $150 for Degree, Mark lists and Transcript – and for three courses, I had to pay $450. Paid the fee in the first week of February and the University kept it u touched till my friend went directly to inquire. Now, they have sent emails for 2 degrees and yet to send one.

        I have been waiting till last September!

          1. I had to pay 450 in total. The people in the section were not aware of the total fee and they just told I had to pay 450. I was forced to.

          2. I was forced to pay $450 for Degree, PG and B Ed as the people in the counter had different opinions. I pad $150 online for one course as I received the following mail from the University regarding MA in February.

            With regard to your application of Official Transcript and Attestation of M A **** degree Marklists, genuineness verification of MA **** Degree certificate and Official Transcript of M A **** markslists, I hereby inform you that WES has forwarded the documents submitted by the university for reverification. For further processing of the documents you are requested to make online payment of 150 USD in the M G University e-payment portal and submit the Fee receipt.

            They didn’t send a mail for the other Degrees, but when my friend went to the Uty counters, they told I was supposed to pay the fee. Someone in the counters said I had to pay $50 for each paper in the package from WES! Somehow, my friend managed to make it 450. He had to go a few times to push the people send mail to WES.

            I will tell you the problem, there is no clear instruction as to how much should we pay for WES re-verification. And the people in the counters Do Not Care about the students at ALL!

      2. Hai,

        Question is related to WES

        During online application request for issuing Official Transcripts of my B.Com degree to WES, I had paid Rs 4465 and for Genuineness Verification of each copy of my B.Com, I had paid rupees 2785
        to M.G University.

        Total I paid Rs 7250

        Now do I need to pay extra 50 $ to M.G . University for re- verification of the same documents ? Why ?

        When I have already made the payment for all these documents, why are they demanding more money from s candidate ?

        That’s too much.

        Can anyone confirm it ?


        1. First of all, you only need to pay for Official Transcripts. The others are not required.

          If WES asks for re-verification, then yes you need to pay $50 to the university to process it. University staff need to work on the documents requested by WES and send it after getting seal and signature from the register and exam controller. University is charing for their time and effort involved in this.

        2. Have u done this through online process..Did the university people asked you to do Genuiness verification of Degree certificate and mark sheets for WES….???When we approached them ,they told transcript would be enough ..

      3. Mkerala, are u sure abt this, cos they asked me to pay $200 for ug and pg degree certificates and OTs. And when i paid them they are saying only OTs can be verified cos i did not apply for verification of degree certificates…do i have to now apply and pay for degree certificates verification again?? I read a post by Anand Madathil that only OTs need to be verified even if WES asks for Degree certificates also….pls help on this matter….i have already paid extra $100 to mgu…i do not want to waste any more money if there is no need be….thanks mkerala for this amazing blog…..this is indeed a great service u r doing…..God bless you

        1. The problem is WES is asking for re-verification of all documents. However, University has issued only your official transcript. Hence, they are asking to apply for genuineness verification if it need to be re-verified. Check with University and complete as per their direction.

  7. I am really concerned.
    As per my agency WES has contacted university since October but I am yet to receive any email from university.
    Is there any id through which I can enquire about this.
    Since it is been more than 4 months I am really concerned.
    I have tried to contact via phone but it never got through.Since I am abroad these are my only options.
    Any help is appreciated

  8. 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 $ 100 (Hundred 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 amount.

    1. Hi Binoy,
      is this email from the MG university? How long did they take to send this email after u received email from WES? also what is the email id we need to send the payment receipt to? we received email from WES 3 weeks back and still no response from the university

  9. I’m confused about the below two fields:
    – Reg No/Ref No. : Is this the university reg no. or WES ref no?
    – address for communication: mine or WES?

    Any help appreciated. Thanks

    1. It should be your Registration number which can be found on your degree certificate. You should always mention WES reference number in the address of the recipient.

  10. Any idea whether there will be only verification for Master degree alone or bachelor degree also by wes, if both are from MG university. I have received notification from MBA alone from MG for fee submission. wes status changed on 29 jan for reverification.

  11. Hi,
    WES has asked for re-verification but the university hasn’t contacted us yet. Do you know which email id we need to send the receipt at, or any contact number where we can get the information?

  12. Wes has asked me to reverify Both Transcript and Degree certificate. I was informed by the university that i have to pay 50$ for each set of verification. That would be 50$+50$ for both documents

      1. Hi,

        WES requested re verification for both Degree Certificate & Transcript for my B-Tech Degree on Feb 7th.

        I received the below memo from University today.

        “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

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

        Hope this helps.


          1. I would like to add few observations from my experience and others who are facing similar re verification issue.
            – If university can send the Transcript & Degree certificate in the same package, chances for Re-verification is less.
            – In most of the cases, re verification happens when transcript is sent from university to WES and sending Degree certificate directly to WES saperately.( which is fine as per WES).
            – If you are planning to sent the degree certificate separately, please make sure both transcript and degree certificate reach almost same time frame.

            Above observations are from my personal experience and people who have already gone thru different scenarios.

            Feel free to reach out to me for more queries.


        1. Hi KJ,

          Thanks for your input.

          Could you also provide answers to below queries?

          1. How long does it take for the university to contact us after WES initiates re-verification?
          2. From which email address will university contact the users?


          1. Hi,

            Please find my comments to the 2 questions posted.

            1 – For me WES updated the status for re-verification on Feb7th and i got the email from university on Feb 17th. So it took 7 working days. (heard it differ from course to course).
            2 – For B-tech it came from Again it is based on the course.

            Hope this helps.


        2. Hi,

          Is there any official fees details from MGU regarding this? Because for me they are asking $100 for Transcript and Degree certificate (B-tech) course.

      2. yes, in my case there was reverification for both bcom n mcom, n had to pay 200usd.
        I applied on oct 1st week, univ sent doc on nov 3rd week, wes updated 24 dec for reverification, univ called me Feb 2nd week, i paid 200usd, n they told me they have sent it. Still waiting for wes update, only guesses now, no idea whats gonna happen.fed up

  13. Respected authority

    how long i need to wait for the university to mail ,i have received a mail from WES for secondary verification.

    Do i need to contact the university for inquiring about the same,


  14. Hello Admin,

    How long I should wait for the University to mail me.

    Is it possible to contact the University ,if I didn’t receive any mail from the University.

    I had received mail from WES .

    I’m afraid that University does not have my contact details.

    Please reply.

  15. Hi Admin
    I have received the email to remitt 50 dollars for verification. So how much amount we need to submit as fees. Should we convert the current conversion rate on the day ?
    For example should i remitt 3550 INR (71 INR = 1 USD).
    Or we need to use submit 50 X 50 ie 2500 INR (The fees pay portal shows multiple of 50 as USD)

  16. Hello Admin
    I got mail from WES regarding reverification. In which email id MG university will contact us. Will wes share our email id to university to contact us.

  17. Should we pay $50 for degree final certificate and $50 each for 6 degree mark sheets for each semester( which makes it a total of $350) ? Or should we pay only $50 combined for both the degree certificate and mark sheets re verification?

      1. I am a little confused here. I was informed by Wes that both my degree certificate and official transcript require verification by the MG university. So as verification fees of 50 USD means for both documents combined or 50 dollars each making it a total of 100 dollars.
