How does CredentialCheck verify education?

Our verification team contacts the schools an applicant included on their resume and/or application. This includes high schools, colleges and trade schools. We verify the following information:

  • Institution attended
  • Dates of attendance and graduation
  • Degree obtained
  • Major field of study

Some information cannot be verified because of school policies. This often includes GPA and disciplinary actions.

Custom verifications with specific requirements are available upon request.
