Step 3: Apply for an international document assessment

Choose from one of the options below:

a) World Education Services (WES) Canada

Visit WES Canada to apply for an International Credential Advantage Package (ICAP). WES guarantees results within one week, providing all of the necessary documentation is included. To ensure a complete assessment, submit all levels of education to WES, including high school documents. For assessment types and fees, refer to WES Canada.

Once your WES evaluation has been completed, your ICAP package will be forwarded electronically to SAIT on your behalf. If you included high school documents, SAIT will assess the authenticated documents provided by WES to determine the equivalent Alberta high school subjects and grades.
