Education Verification
 

Key words: education verification, background check, database, due diligence

When conducting education verifications here are some things to keep in mind-

• Colleges and Universities typically provide verification either in-house or through the National Student Clearing House or another third party service. If the University is registered with a third party service, the degree can often be verified that day. Third party services will charge a fixed rate for access verification. Some background checking agencies will add on to this rate while others will pass it on at cost.

• Typically, degrees are verified by background checking services within a couple, few days. The process may take longer if your candidate has either graduated some years back or is not listed in the database.

• Verification may also take longer over the holidays, semester break or the summer. Be prepared to allow for more time for verification.

• Verification from foreign universities inevitably will take longer than domestic verification. Typically, the rates for foreign verifications are significantly higher than charges for a domestic university. Be prepared to pay more and wait longer for the foreign verification.

• Some schools will ask for your candidate's disclosure and release form before issuing the verification.

• When providing your candidate's information to the University or third party service, it is best to include the years attended, the year graduated, the actual degree and major, and for large schools the campus where your candidate attended.

• If your candidate is a female, be sure the information you submit reflects the actual name with which your candidate graduated. Sometimes your candidate applies for the position under her married name and fails to provide her maiden name, the name she used while attending school.

• This may also apply for foreign students. Sometimes foreign candidates will change their names after graduation, to make them more accessible in the American workplace. But they may have attended school, using their formal name. Your candidate is known to you as "Ben," but in school he was still "Bao." This can complicate the verification process.

• If the school or the third party service is having a difficult time verifying y our candidate's degree, they may request a facsimile of his diploma or final transcripts.

• Be sure to keep your verification process uniform. You may decide to verify all degrees or only the highest degree obtained. Whatever you do for one candidate, you should do for all the rest.

• Make sure your background checking service stays in front of any complications that may arise in the verification process. Establish and maintain fluid communication channels so that the service can keep you informed and request additional information when needed.

Remember if for some reason and after all due diligence you are unable to verify your candidate's degree, it probably means he never obtained one. They may try to talk their way out of it, but hold firm and insist they provide any information that has been requested. There is nothing exceptional about this information for anyone who has truly graduated from an accredited college or university. If they can't provide that information, you may want to look for another candidate. Remember the axiom that if they lie about their degree then they'll lie when on the job didn't become accepted wisdom for no reason. Check them out before you hire.
