Based on numerous reports and CS internal studies, education credentials are the single most common item embellished on a resume. Standard verification is of the highest degree claimed by the candidate, but can be customized to meet your specific requirements. Information reported will include, when made available by the school, but may not be limited to; dates of attendance, course of study, degree, and graduation date. CS will always attempt to obtain verification on institutions that are defunct or closed. Additionally, if the candidate claims graduation and the registrar claims otherwise we will re-verify through the alumni office. CS also has the ability to identify diploma mills and bogus accrediting agencies not recognized the U.S. Department of Education. All discrepant information will be obtained in writing from the source.
