Your Questions, Answered

Yes, Certn can verify ongoing enrollment, but the results will come back as “Partially Verified” until the degree is obtained.

Yes! That’s a benefit of using a reputable third-party background screening vendor. Some international institutions require more information on the candidate and/or a wet signature.  Leave the work to Certn’s verifications team.

With Certn’s education verification, we prepare a report that includes information on: 1) The authenticity of the educational institution mentioned by the candidate, 2) The completion of a degree, diploma, or certificate at the educational institutions named by the candidate, and 3) The date(s) when the candidate began their course of study or completed their education. 

We cover more about the benefit of education verification and how verifications stop application fraud.

The turnaround time for education verifications depends on the availability of the records and the efficiency and responsiveness of the sources, but we generally tell clients that they can expect a response within 5 to 10 business days.
