Education Background Screening Solution

ESR provides education background screening services specializing in schools, colleges, and universities.

Employment Screening Resources (ESR) provides education background screening services specializing in schools, colleges, and universities. ESR helps verify the certification, training, and educational claims such as dates of attendance and graduation, degrees or certifications obtained, and majors studied of a job applicant. ESR protects against false educational claims.

Along with standard ESR background screening services, solutions include:

  • Helping Colleges and Universities Hire Safe Employees and Faculty Members
  • Diploma Mills and Degree Mills Checks
  • Student Background Checks

If a school is not accredited, a search of databases listing known false schools is conducted.

Employers should keep in mind that there is no comprehensive, up-to-date list of fake schools that can be set up overnight and these schools are now setting up fake accreditation agencies. If a school cannot be validated, it does not necessarily mean the school is fake since there are legitimate distance learning schools, vocational schools, and theological schools that can grant degrees.

An experienced background screening firm like ESR will always take steps to determine if a school is authentic.
