I have to get my college diploma accredited and I have heard many people using SpanTran. It seems convenient because they don't require the original documents. Do you guys recommend using their service compared to ECE or WES?

Greetings!

SpanTran is a member of NACES, so it is legit though  I used ECE as it was the one suggested by a friend.

Here is the link where in you can view all NACES members and I could see that Span Tran is a member.

Note: If you are applying for more school always secure extra copies as it is very expensive.

My best regards, NG

I used them in early March.  They were absolutely fine.  More expensive than most, but they were more convenient.

What did you have to provide to them?

Had to email undergraduate university transcript (from England), and my "high school" GCSE/A-Level results (from Ireland).

 

They'll provide an email copy of the equivalency, then hard copy mail out one as well.  The first copies will note that the evaluation for the legitimacy of the documents are "pending" (and I sent that one on to USCIS because they were asking for "equivalency", not for an accuracy check).  About a couple of weeks later Spantran sent out hard copies verifying the documents themselves (same document as before, but with the "pending" bit removed).   

I paid them twice (for high school and university), but I think if you send your university one in, they then ask for the high school stuff, and you don't have to pay twice.

No problem.  Make sure to check with them before sending stuff in that both the high school/university equivalency is one payment.  I wouldn't want you to send in university stuff, then for them to not request the high school stuff.  

 

They're quick (and it's great to be able to do it electronically), but I'm having to ask them to refund what I see as a double-payment.

I was happy with the results overall though.

We used SpanTran recently and would recommend them. They were fast. Expensive though.

Looking back through my emails, for a college degree equivalent and high school diploma equivalent, looks like I paid $220, plus $130 for translations.
