The process of verifying an applicant's educational qualification starts with collecting information about the degree and institution that the candidate claims that they have attended. The documented education institution is then contacted to verify the authenticity of the candidate claims.

This information helps in determining whether or not a person is qualified for the position at hand. This process can be time-consuming if done manually, however it can help employers save time by avoiding hiring candidates who are not qualified based on their education.
