International Education FAQ

All applicants with international education are required to submit a third-party evaluation report. 

We recommend obtaining a WES ICAP evaluation. For additional information on WES please refer to their website. 

Please see <> for information regarding internationally trained accountants. 

A study permit is not required to request a transcript assessment; however, a study permit is required to enroll with CPAWSB for anyone who is not a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.

If your document is not in English, please have a certified translation sent by mail to

Or emailed from the certified translation service to: transcriptassessment@cpawsb.ca 

The third-party evaluation service and CPA Western School of Business are different organizations. The fee you paid for the third-party report is to verify your international education and identify the Canadian degree equivalency. The CPAWSB transcript assessment reviews the courses you completed and grades received, as identified on the transcript, to determine whether any CPA prerequisite exemptions can be granted. 

Due to privacy policies, we can only return your transcripts to you. Please ensure your My CPA profile information is correct and contact transcriptassessment@cpawsb.ca.   

Please provide the following information: 

  • CPA number 
  • Current shipping address 
  • Name of the document requested 
  • Telephone number 

Reports must be sent to CPAWSB directly from the Canadian third-party evaluation organization. Please arrange to have another copy sent directly from the third-party evaluation organization to:
