An Academic Transcript Check goes one step further than a Qualification Check by providing confirmation of the grades achieved for the overall degree and/or specific modules, the qualification held and post-nominals as indicated on the candidate’s resume. With the applicant’s permission, we will reach out to the institution to verify their academic transcript so you can rest assured your applicants are the right people for your company.

Why should you conduct an Academic Transcript Check?

An Academic Transcript Check should be conducted for the following reasons:

  • Verify your applicant’s education history and level of education obtained
  • Safeguard your company and staff from poor hiring decisions that could have long term consequences
  • Identify any falsified records prior to onboarding a new employee
  • Peace of mind that you’re hiring the right applicant for your company

How long does an Academic Transcript Check take?

On average, you can expect to receive the results of your applicant’s Academic Transcript Check within one to two business days.

Turnaround times are an estimation only based on our experience. Where ProbityPeople is reliant on third parties to provide information, it may take longer for information to be supplied.

  • The level of education obtained by an applicant
