Employment applicants with a verifiable education are considered with more trust and respect by employers.
An Important component of employment screening
Educated people tend to have a better judgment of their impulses and thus, are considered less likely to commit any criminal acts in the workplace.
Why should an employer verify former education?
While a college education can empower a potential employee in many ways, there is always a small percentage of applicants who lie in their resumes. One particular area is their former education degrees. Oftentimes, an employment candidate may try to exaggerate by claiming to have received a graduate degree when in reality, they simply attended the school briefly without obtaining a diploma.
Beware of a diploma mill degree
A diploma mill (also known as a degree mill) is an unaccredited higher education institution that offers illegitimate academic degrees and diplomas for a fee. These degrees may claim to give credit for relevant life experience, but should not be confused with legitimate prior learning assessment programs. They may also claim to evaluate work history or require submission of a thesis or dissertation for evaluation to give an appearance of authenticity. Diploma mills are frequently supported by accreditation mills, set up for the purpose of providing an appearance of authenticity.

Education Verification Report
The vast majority of colleges and universities outsource their registrar records to a handful of national repository companies incurring an additional charge of anywhere from $6 to $24. We have no way of knowing that added charge until you place your order. Once we contact the educational institution, we will advise you of additional charge, if any. This search is for employment screening purposes only and a signed background check authorization must be uploaded when placing order.
