Education Verification & Background Checks

Processing education verifications ensures that an applicant’s listed information is true and correct. With so many job openings and so few candidates, it is imperative that you place the right people in the right job the first time. If a candidate will fabricate educational history, what other skills are they falsify on their resume?

Crimcheck’s education verification service is used to confirm what schools a job applicant attended. For colleges, Crimcheck will verify the duration of attendance. If the applicant was issued a degree or diploma. Crimcheck can also verify if the applicant graduated high school or virtually any trade school in the country.

What Does An Education Background Check Show?

  • Institution attended
  • Date of graduation/dates of attendance
  • Diploma earned
  • Major

Many post-secondary schools use special websites to house their education records, rather than releasing the information themselves. To use such websites, companies need to have a subscription or use a third-party verifier, like Crimcheck.

Even with sources, such as the National Student Clearinghouse to verify post-secondary education, many institutions, such as Harvard and Yale, require human to human contact to verify education credentials. Further, the majority of high schools still require an individual calling the school system to verify graduation. Crimcheck knows and understands this process. Our in-house education verification process will continue to pursue education verification as long as it takes to get an answer.

With today’s use of photoshop and other online technology, relying on a copy of a diploma for verification cannot be trusted. You still need to verify that your applicant actually earned that diploma.  Degrees can be bought online (diploma mills) photoshopped or altered so easily it is important to have someone check to confirm a degree was earned.
