How does DegreeVerify participation help prevent credentials fraud?
It is estimated that up to half of all resumes contain fraudulent information*, including educational achievements. Those who falsify information count on the verification process being so difficult that employers and others will not attempt to verify educational claims. DegreeVerify makes educational verifications so accessible and affordable that thousands of employers, recruiters, and background screening firms use it each year, making it the preferred degree verification service in the U.S.
