ISWDRES Determination Letter

Issuance of Letter

When all of the determination application documentation is received, the application will be reviewed. The ISWDRES determination is communicated to the applicant in a formal letter. If the degree is recognized, each applicant is entitled to two copies of the letter. The applicant has the option to have both letters mailed to the mailing address listed on the application form or have one letter mailed to the mailing address on the application form and the other to a second address of his or her choosing in the determination letter section of the application form. If the applicant's degree is not recognized, the applicant will receive an email notification.

The applicant can generally expect to receive the formal determination letter informing him or her on the degree recognized within 45 days of ISWDRES receiving all of the documentation listed in steps 2 and 3.
