General information regarding ECE® documentation requirements:
ECE requires the most secure and reliable educational documentation available to prepare evaluation reports. When possible, we rely on verification and authentication services, provided either by the issuing institution or by a reliable entity charged with authenticating official documentation in the country. When a verification or authentication service is not available, we require official documents in sealed envelopes prepared by the issuing institution. If it is not possible to obtain official documents in sealed envelopes prepared by the issuing institution, then we require the original official documents to which you have access, such as those that were issued to you upon graduation or completion of your period of study/enrollment.
Please note that we will retain official documents submitted to us in sealed envelopes. Original documents that are not received in sealed envelopes will be returned to the applicant.
We will contact foreign educational institutions to verify educational documents when necessary.
