How to : Get transcripts from Anna University, Chennai for WES

****Guys, this process has changed! The process was all online . However, they changed it back and now you’ll have to go to the University to get the transcripts. Please check with your peers or contact the University directly to understand the most current process.*****

To get an Education Credential Evaluation from WES, you need to get transcripts from the university that awarded you the degree. Though the process

Anna University - Chennai

Anna University – Chennai

of getting the documents is almost the same for any purpose, there might be subtle differences. The scope of this post to explain the process of getting transcripts from Anna University, Chennai for getting a WES (Canada) evaluation for CIC purposes in extreme detail. It is a very easy and straightforward process (though you have to be careful sometimes since people there would miss to place a few documents in the envelope, I’ll talk about that a little later in the post).

I had a friend go get the transcripts for me since I was not able to go in person for personal reasons. I was familiar with the process by doing some homework (Forums, blogs etc.) but he wasn’t. So, I had to tell him every nuance from the working hours of the transcript office till the address to which the envelope had to be forwarded for evaluation. So, I sent a post (along with other required documents) so that he understands the process well and gets the transcripts on time. Read on to know how to get your transcripts from AU, Chennai.

General Information:

  • Go to the university as early as possible. The transcripts office is open from 9 AM to 6 PM. The office is always busy so expect to wait in a queue.
  • The entrance to this is before the Anna University bus stop when coming from Saidapet/Raj Bhavan side. You will see a Canara Bank ATM. As soon as you enter there is a temple to the left and just a little further down is the white building. You have to go to the transcripts section which is a small office behind this building.
  • The photocopy shop inside the campus is located behind the main canteen. PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS OPTION BECAUSE IT IS FAR OFF FROM THE TRANSCRIPTS OFFICE AND IS ALWAYS VERY CROWDED.
  • Please have the below mentioned number of photocopies for all the documents as mentioned below.
  • Remember, soon after you take the DD, make photocopies of it. Also, you would need to write the application number, register number and name on the back of the passport size photos.
  • While filling the application form, please tell them that this request for transcript is being made for the purpose of getting an ECA from WES for Canadian immigration.

Please note that the university will take one week to deliver the transcripts (if you provide the original documents) and one month (if you do not provide your original document).

BEFORE YOU GO TO THE UNIVERSITY

Documents required:

  • Degree Certificate – Original + Photocopies of front and back [2 copies]
  • Provisional Certificate – Original + Photocopies of both front and back[2 copies]
  • Consolidated Mark sheet – Original + Photocopies of both front and back[2 copies]
  • 10th, +2 Certificate – Original + Photocopies [2 copies each]
  • Passport – Photocopy [2 copies]
  • Your ID Proof – Original and Photocopy [2 copies]
  • The authorization letter given by me – Original
  • 3 Demand Drafts {DD} – [First DD for Rs.500, the second one for Rs.200 and the third one for Rs.200] Original + Photocopies. The Demand Drafts must be taken in the name of
    The Controller of Examinations, Anna University, Chennai – 25”. You must write your name, registration number on the back of all the DDs.
  • 2 letters (One to request Anna University to release the transcripts to WES and fill the “Academic Records Request form” for WES and the second one is a letter to WES “Non-issuance of transcripts for semester-wise mark sheets”). [I have included the format of the aforementioned letters below.]
  • Passport Size Photos – 2 photos (Write your name and registration number on the back of both the photos)
  • Academic Records Request form by WES – 1 filled in copies
  • Full Scale Envelopes – 2 (Write your name and registration number on the BACK OF ONE ENVELOPE ONLY)

AFTER YOU GO TO THE UNIVERSITY:

  • Please remember that people who have got the transcripts before have claimed that the officials in this division are very arrogant not helpful. It is important not to lose your cool otherwise it is going to delay the process. It is also highly essential that you understand what you are doing and what they are asking.
  • Please wait in the queue and talk to the official at the window. He’ll ask you for the original documents first. Show him the ORIGINALS of Degree Certificate, Provisional Certificate and the consolidated mark sheet.
  • After this, he’ll give you an application form that reads “Application for the issue of transcripts”. You will see an Application Number on the top right corner of the form (Appl. No: ). Please note this application number down for your reference. This is the only proof that you will have.
  • Please write the application number on the back of the following documents :
  1. All the 3 Demand Drafts
  2. Passport Size Photos
  3. The full scale envelope.
  • Please tell the official that you would need them to I) Complete, Sign and place a seal on the WES “Academic Records Request Form” and II) Sign and Seal the “Non-issuance of Semester-wise mark sheets” letter.
  • After this, hand over the ORIGINAL Degree Certificate/Provisional Certificate AND the Consolidated Mark sheet along with the other documents mentioned above to the official.
  • Please confirm with the official if you have given all the documents [ 2 request letters, WES Academic Records Request form, 3 photo copies of degree/provisional certificates, 3 photo copies of consolidated mark sheet, photos, DDs].
  • Kindly request the official to “Place the transcript, “Academic Records Request Form” and the “Non issuance of semester-wise mark sheets letter” in an official Anna University Envelope and SIGN ON THE FLAP”.
  • It is imperative that the official envelope is signed on the flap otherwise it will be INVALID. The below image illustrates an envelope that is signed on the flap.
Sealed envelope - Sample

Sealed envelope – Sample

WHILE COLLECTING BACK THE TRANSCRIPTS AND THE ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS

  • Please make sure you have your authorization letter, your ID Proof and your ID proof to collect the transcripts and your original documents.
  • Please collect the transcript envelope and check if it is signed on the flap.
  • Also, don’t forget to collect the original documents.

AFTER COLLECTION OF TRANSCRIPTS:

  • Please ensure that the transcript is available in the format earlier described. I am attaching a sheet with an illustration that shows how the envelope should be. Do not DO ANYTHING to the official transcript given by Anna University [other than writing your WES reference number on it]. Handle it very carefully; the seal on the flap must be intact.
  • Get a big cloth/fiber-like envelope [The one in which we used to get our exam question papers] and a standard A-4 Envelope.
  • In the standard A-4 Envelope, you must enclose the following :
  • A neat, legible copy of degree certificate
  • A neat, legible copy of provisional certificate
  • Cover letter with the subject “Need expanded last name in report
  • The copy of passport along with the cover letter
  • Please remember to write the WES REFERENCE NUMBER of ALL the envelopes.
  • Then, put the transcripts and the standard A-4 sized envelope inside the big cloth/fiber-like envelope. The final package [inside the large envelope] should contain the following :
  • The transcript envelope given by Anna University. [With WES reference number on it]. It must be strategically placed so that the flap remains intact and in good condition.
  • The regular A-4 Envelope containing the aforementioned documents with WES reference number mentioned on it]
  • Please seal the big envelope tight.
  • Please write the following postal address [on the big envelope] legibly.

WES Reference No: XXXXXXX
World Education Services
Attention: Documentation Center
2 Carlton Street, Suite 1400
Toronto, Ontario M5B 1J3
Canada

  • Write your address on the lower right of the envelope.

After this, the front of your envelope should look like it is illustrated below.

Final Envelope - Sample

Final Envelope – Sample

  • Send it to WES !

PLEASE NOTE :

Anna University DOES NOT seal the flap. It signs on the flap and gives the envelope to you. You are responsible for sealing the flap and sending it to WES.

Some of the above mentioned documents might not be asked by the University but it is always good to have them, just in case!

Good luck with your ECA process, guys!

For instance, if your name in academic records is Daniel S and you want Daniel Smith to be printed (as per your passport), while creating your account mention your full first and last name. They’ll print it like this: Daniel S (Smith).

  8. Hi,
    Very Nice of you to help others with their queries.
    I have some lengthy questions, please try to answer as much as you know. It will be very helpful for me.

    I am currently in USA and am planning to study Masters in Computer Science here. So i am going to authorize my friend to apply and collect transcripts and i am going to send my transcripts through WES to US Colleges.

    1) If i apply for 4 sets of transcripts with WES academic request form + Non-issuance, then i will be getting 3 separate sealed transcript envelopes and one sealed envelope with one set of transcript, WES form and Non-issuance form, right?

    2) Will we be able to verify the transcripts before University’s sealing and signing off?

    3) All the DD’s, Application form for 4 sets, WES form, Non-issuance form.., other documents will be put in one full size envelope? or in separate envelope for each sets?

    4) In the Application form, for Question “Whether the names and addresses of the Universities are written on the cover”, if i want to apply for say 3 universities, do i need to mention the addresses of all 3 universities, if so where to mention the address?

    5) In WES site, they say don’t send Original Transcripts. What does this mean? Is there anything like original transcripts and photocopies transcript? If i apply for 4 transcripts, then all the 4 sealed transcripts will be original?

    6) Can my Authorized friend be able to sign the Application form on my behalf.

    Also should my Authorization letter be sent to my friend physically (like courier) or can i send the scanned copy of the signed Authorization letter through email to him and he can print and bring it to the COE office.

    7) Is there any other forms/letters, my signature is needed?

    Thank you in advance.

    • 1) Yes, I guess this will be the case. I’m not very sure though.
      2) Anna University will not steal the flap. You are free to check the documents.
      3) I think they’ll give it in different envelopes.
      4) No clue, I applied for immigration purpose and I have no idea about applying to universities.
      5) What they mean is don’t send your original documents like your original degree certificate and original marksheet. You need to send what the university issues – no tampering.
      6) Your friend can apply on behalf of you if he has required documents plus the authorization letter. Sign the letter and upload it. Your friend can take a color print ( I sent a physical copy of the letter but I think it’s fine to print online copy).
      7) Authorization letter.

    • Authorization letter is a simple letter. Just write you are authorizing your friend to submit and receive documents on your behalf. As for the non-issuance letter, tell the person there to place a copy. They have a preprinted format there. The other letter is also a simple letter, just write to Anna University to issue you transcripts.

  13. Hi Raj

    I also have few more questions. Last year I got transcripts from Anna University for a different purpose (for pursuing part time Masters in US). But I didn’t apply to Masters and I still have the transcripts with me. I am thinking of using it to save time and also avoid bothering friends visit Anna Univ again.

    1) The seal has a date of 15-Sep-2015. Is it okay to use that?
    2) The envelope has been stapled instead of pasting. The stapling is very clean and the seal, signature are intact. My friend says the staff gave it that way and I am not sure why it was issued like that to me. The WES says that the doc needs to be sealed. I think I should be able to paste it applying gum in between stapling to make it appear sealed. Will there be any problem because of additional stapling of the documents?
    3) Is anything else needed inside the envelope apart from the transcripts? Like WES application or something? Or just transcripts are sufficient?

    Also, what happens in worst case if WES finds the docs unacceptable? Will we get a chance to submit them again or we lose the fee that was paid?

    Thanks.

      4) Not mandatory AFAIK but you do need a letter for non-issuance of semester-wise mark sheets and you should find that in the itranscripts interface.

      5) Again, depends. Took around 3 weeks to get mine back in June last year.

What WES issues is an ECA (Education Credential Assessment) which determines what your foreign education is worth in Canada. Anna University issues a “WES Academic Request form” which is an optional form AFAIK. You have to collect transcripts from University and send them to WES to get them evaluated.

    • 1) My last name is not expanded in my degree or mark sheets. The name on the ECA report has to match the name on your PP. So, sent them that to make sure the print my name in full.

      2) Non-issuance was required because my University doesn’t issue semester-wise mark sheets. I know that option has been removed from the website now. So I believe all you can do is write a LOE and explains that the university doesn’t issue semester-wise marksheets.

      3) The academic records request form is optional AFAIK. It is needed only to request your University to issue transcripts (some universities might need it mandatorily).

    I have completed my UG (BE) and PG(MBA) from Anna university Guindy campus. I donot have the consolidated marksheet for BE, but I have it for MBA.
    So can I request for transcripts using individual marksheets for BE and using consolidated for MBA?

  40. Hi Raj,
    It was very informative:)
    1) Doubt which i have is apart from transcripts provided university do we need to send degree certificate?
    2) If Yes, do we need to send original?(degree means convocation certificate?)

    • 1) Yes. You have to slide in a COPY of your degree in addition to the transcripts. You can add this in a small envelope, drop this and the transcripts into a larger envelope and send it to WES.

      2) NEVER! Never provide your original degree unless it is explicitly requested in writing.

    • Transcripts = Degree and consolidated Mark sheet attesteted by the registrar/Controller of Examinations from Anna University.

      In addition to that, you are expected to add a copy of your degree from your end.

      You might also need the “Non issuance of semester-wise marksheets” letter but I’m not sure if it is still required. Ask other readers who have gone through the process recently.

  42. Dear Raj,

    1. I have visited the web page http://www.annauniv.itranscripts.in and noted that application for transcripts for WES purpose shall be done by visiting the transcript office personally. I have confirmed the same by calling Anna Univ Transcript office. So online application does not work for transcript to WES purpose
    2. May i request a format for “Non Issuance of Semester Wise Mark Sheets” letter.
    3. Expanded name request letter shall be addressed to Anna University Transcript Office or WES i.e. expanded to be reflected only in the ECA Document or to be reflected in Anna University Transcript Letter itself
    4. Appreciate if you could provide me a format of expanded name request letter which you have used last time in your ECA evaluation. (Have you succeeded in getting the expanded name in ECA Document at without any further difficulties and without any further repetitive steps or requests ?)

    • 1) Okay. Thanks for letting me know.
      2) They’ll give you that letter. You don’t need the format.
      3) To WES.
      4) General letter. No specific format required.

      • Many Thanks Raj. Bye the way are they taking in any candidates under Federal Skilled Workers Program. I have notice that the current draw was only for Federal Skilled Trades Program (500 invitations) and Provincial Nominee Program (200 invitations). Have they stopped issuing ITA ‘s to the candidates of Federal Skilled Worker Program?

  43. Hi Raj,
    Thanks to your blog i have received my degree transcript, Academic Request Form, Notification on non issue of semester wise certificate and degree certificate copy attested from Anna University without much difficulty.
    I would be much grateful to you if you could clarify me on how to proceed with sending the documents to WES, Canada.
    1. Only the transcript alone should be placed in the sealed envelope or the WES Academic Request Form also to be placed in the sealed envelope along with other attested documents received from Anna University.
    2. Whether a copy of provisional certificate that has to kept in the A4 sheet should be attested by Anna University or just a copy.
    Thanks in advance.

  45. Hi Raj!

    A small update. Transcript office is asking 3 copies if TC (Transfer Certificate) as well in order to process and sign WES Academic Records Request Form. The reason is as an evidence to one field in theform course start date and end date i.e. from dd/mm/yyyy to dd/mm/yyyy. Also the staffs are insisting that the relevant field to be kept blank in order to be filled by the staff himself upon verifying start and end dates from the transfer certificate.

  47. Hi Raj,
    Your post is pretty much useful for lot of people even after years. I just need a clarification due to my poor understanding.. Sorry for bothering you

    I am requesting for below from AU with all supporting documents through my proxy.

    1. WES academic request form signed by Univ
    2. Non-issuance of Semwise mark sheet transcript
    3. Transcript of consolidated and Degree certificate

    Will they provide above all 3 together kept in a single “official Anna Univ” envelope or each in an “official Anna Univ” envelope?

    Do they seal/sign each in the flap but will not glue it? So we can verify and just glue it? (As WES rule says opened one..would not be accepted)

    When do they use the cloth cover?

    Thanks for your time

    • They wouldn’t have sent to back to the University, I guess. They would have emailed or contacted the University for verification. I have never heard WES sending the copies to the University – it makes no sense. Did WES mention they sent physical transcript copies to the University ?

      The University has to respond to them.

  57. Hello Rajkamalm,
    I would like to know how can i get IQAS done from Anna University. But as we are currently staying in Kuwait, it’s difficult for us to go and get the things done personally. Reason why i selected IQAS because i did my graduation from Sikkim Manipal University and WES will not assess my education credentials from Sikkim Manipal University. so only option for me to get my ECA done is by IQAS.
    may i know is there any option to do this online?

    I am in the process to send the ECA to WES. My Name Expansion in the degree certificate and transcripts is not the same as in my passport. Would that be a problem, how would I get my copy from university with my name expanded?

    • You don’t. You get transcripts from the University. When sending the transcripts to WES, add a letter of explanation and tell them that you would like the expanded format of your name printed on the report. You can attach a copy of your passport showing the full name. Also make sure your WES account actually has the full name (the order form on which your name is asked for)

  59. Dear Raj,
    First of all thank you so much for this post. you are very cool and acknowledge all the queries.
    I got Canada work permit VISA from my company. Most probably i will travel at the end of December month. Once reach Canada, six month later I’m planning to apply PR for that I have to get WES ECA. So I approached Anna University in person. They said just follow the post which they stick outside.
    1) Documents required for applying Transcript:
    10th/12th Marksheet – 1 Copy
    Photo ID Proof – 1 Copy
    Consolidated Mark Sheet – 1 copy
    Provisional/ Degree Cert – 1 Copy
    Demand Draft – 500 Rs (In favour of “Controller of Examination **********)
    2) Documents required for applying WES :
    Consolidated MarkSheet – 1 Copy
    Provisional/ Degree Cert – 1 Copy
    Transfer/Course completion Cert – 1 Copy
    WES form – 3 copies(Part A to be filled by Candidate)
    Demand Draft – 200 Rs (In favour of “Controller of Examination **********)
    3) Documents required for applying Non Issuance:
    Consolidated MarkSheet – 1 Copy
    Provisional/ Degree Cert – 1 Copy
    Demand Draft – 200 Rs (In favour of “Controller of Examination **********)
    Kindly Acknowledge all my below queries:
    ———————————————————-
    1) I am not having WES reference number. Since I haven’t completed the payment. I would like to do once reach Canada. So that I can’t able to apply for 2nd document (i.e WES Academic Request Form). It is mandatory document to submit to WES?
    2) In WES portal, I read the below documents are needs to be submitted:
    1) Degree Certificate Copy – Which is got from college
    2) Transcript – which University will provide after applying
    It’s single document or two document. What would be in transcript? Someone said it’s double(Degree Transcript and Consolidated Transcript). Please confirm.
    3) Is non- Issuance of semester wise marksheet letter is mandatory for WES?
    4) How I will send the document to WES? What are all the documents needs to keep in envelope?. What is meant by outer and inner envelope?
    5) What should I keep in inner envelope and outer envelope?
    Hope that inner should contain Transcript and Degree Certificate Copy.
    Outer envelope should contain concerned letter(Non issuance of Semester wise marksheet, Letter for given the ECA report with full name). Please confirm.
    I wrote this mail after so many confusion with my friends. Please acknowledge clearly.

    • 1) No
      2) Make a photocopy of your degree and submit it along with the transcripts obtained from University .
      3) I suppose it is; that has been the standard practice.
      4,5) Transcripts and degree copy. Transcripts envelope as-is. Place transcripts envelope and degree copy separately inside a larger envelope.
