About CertiFile

ApplyWeb has partnered with Educational Perspectives (EP) and Digitary Inc/My eQuals/MyCreds.ca|MesCertif.ca to ensure that your educational credentials are accepted as accurate and authentic by the institution(s) to which you are applying.

CertiFile allows you to order educational credential certifications and evaluations from within this application, to be attached to your application and delivered directly to the school. You can use your CertiFile credential certification or evaluation unlimited times for a single one-time fee, including attaching your CertiFile certification or evaluation to multiple ApplyWeb applications.

In addition, you retain access to your CertiFile certification or evaluation via Digitary CORE for use in other situations such as job applications requiring degree verification.
