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.

MG University Process for re-verification

MG University will send below email to candidates for payment of reverification fee of $50 each for transcript/degree certificate. If WES ask the university for both transcript and Degree Certificate fee it will be $100. Else it will be $50 for just the transcript. This will be mentioned in the email from university.

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 you via email within two weeks and asks to pay the re-verification fee.
  4. Visit the online payment portal and pay US $50 or $100 ( This will be the amount mentioned by the university in the email)

6. Sent the payment receipt to the email mentioned by the university in the memo.

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 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.

Special thanks to Sreejith, Amal & KJ for their inputs.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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?

  4. 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.
