Education Verification

For jobs requiring specific certifications, levels of education, etc., this is the ideal search. We will contact education institutions, certification boards, etc. to verify receipt of diplomas, degrees, certifications, and dates of attendance.

Scope:  Highest Degree Earned.

Turnaround time (average):  2-4 Business Days.

Type of Source: Third Party Providers and Education Institutions.  Additional charges may apply when a third party provider is required to conduct the search.

Required Information:

  • Name
  • Date of Birth (DOB)
  • Social Security Number
  • School Attended
  • School Address
  • Dates dipolma/degree earned
  • Years attended

Method: When we verify an applicant’s educational credentials, steps are taken to validate that the institution is not a diploma mill. This is done by checking with the council for higher education, checking with state education departments, and/or performing an internet search of the academic institution. When providing verifications of education which are not public, we 1) obtain confirmation of identity through verification of SSN, full name, and/or date of birth; 2) obtain confirmation of information source name, address, and contact details; 3) Solicit information from the source rather than providing leading information. It is BLI’s policy to make a minimum of one solid attempt per day for three successive business days to obtain results from the established verifying party. After three solid attempts, BLI will close the order as unverifiable.
