Q12. Can the diploma be evaluated by WES or similar agencies, or can I get equivalence in my local country?

WES is mainly only able to evaluate certificates issued by government universities. This is also the case for various country-specific evaluation agencies and their policies vary greatly from agency to another. As we are a private school, agencies like WES, or country-specific agencies that provide equivalence may not be able to evaluate the certificates issued by JLI. As such any equivalence is not guaranteed. If you seek equivalence, then we recommend you to upgrade the JLI program (i.e. a diploma) to one of the master's degrees that we offer in collaboration with other universities via credit transfer.
