Comprehensive Education Verifications

Education Verification Services

Verify that your applicant hasn’t overinflated their credentials with ScoutLogic’s Education Verification Service.  Degree checks are extremely important when validating the education backgrounds of employees who are in professional and executive roles.  Protect your brand and stay out of the papers by ensuring that key personnel haven’t lied about degree type or, even worse, lied about having a degree at all. Ensure that technical staff has the training and skills required to complete the job with a high level of proficiency.

ScoutLogic offers verification of education credentials that confirm degree received, course of study, and dates of attendance.  Our service is able to provide degree verification at secondary, collegiate, and post graduate programs.

If ScoutLogic is unable to verify a degree due to age or location of records we will reach out to the applicant at no cost to you to gather proof of degree in the form of a diploma or transcript.

License and Certification Checks

ScoutLogic verifies licensing and certification data at the source. These checks typically include license status, issuance dates, and any disciplinary actions.



How do you perform education verifications?

Education verifications are either very easy to complete because an applicant went to a large accredited university or they are really hard because the candidate attended a small college that has limited resources to assist with verifying degrees or you are trying to verify a high school diploma. ScoutLogic has improved challenging verifications in four ways. First, using ScoutLogic Analytics, we identify the challenging verifications are the start of the screen and begin the process immediately. Second, we only use US based verifiers who have a higher success rate of securing the verification. Third, we use an outbound calling and emailing solution that increases verifier productivity 300% via automated dialing and emailing for the verifier, leaving personalized voicemails from the verifier, local phone numbers on the employer’s caller ID, and analytics software that demonstrates trends in verifying we can use to adjust workload, call times, and much more.

How long do education verifications take?

ScoutLogic’s Education background checks take between 4 and 72 hours in most cases. That said, all education verifications have different turnaround times based on the school type and size, availability of records and time elapsed since the degree or diploma was awarded. Never believe it when someone gives you a “standard” turnaround time or even worse they “guarantee” an unrealistic turnaround time like one day for all searches. The reality is that some searches are just more difficult to complete. This is why we created ScoutLogic analytics. ScoutLogic Analytics breaks down all of the applicant attributes including school type, verification method, and date of degree or diploma to provide you with an estimated turnaround time for your specific case, not just a guesstimate based on the average of  thousands of different types of verifications.
