WES is a professional education evaluation service that determines educational equivalency to US programs. Georgia Tech provides its own in-house education evaluation service also required of international students. WES evaluation is a requirement specific to the MSPO program and is mandated by prosthetic and orthotic accrediting and certification bodies. Additional questions may be addressed to NCOPE or the American Board for Certification in Orthotics and Prosthetics.
