The Background Check Program verifies academic credentials to ensure a highly qualified and competent workforce is in place to meet university needs.
Final candidates for faculty, EHRA non-faculty, SHRA, and post-doctoral positions
The University must verify the highest degree held by final candidates for faculty, EHRA non-faculty, SHRA, and post-doctoral positions prior to hire.
Final candidates for faculty appointments may also require verification of any additional graduate-level degrees.
If the degree that is subject to verification was obtained from an educational institution outside of the U.S, individuals are required to complete a WES (World Education Services) evaluation. For further assistance and instruction, contact the Background Check Program firstname.lastname@example.org or visit http://help.wes.org/.
Final candidates for temporary positions
The University may verify the highest degree held by final candidates for temporary appointments when appropriate or requested by the hiring department.
Current employees who would like to have their education information updated in MyPack as verified can complete the Education Verification Authorization form and return to the Background Check Program in order to make this update.
