What is Education Accreditation?

Education accreditation is a process in which academic programs and degrees are recognized as accredited. Forgery and fraud in the higher education community is not a new concept. It exists as long as there is the idea of purported personal gain from misrepresentation of academic achievement. Credential evaluators, therefore, have the additional task of combatting this phenomenon in order to protect their institution, their professional integrity, and even those applicants who seek admission to programs for which they are inadequately prepared. Technological advancements have made combatting this issue more effective, but also present new challenges in detecting malice in the admissions process.

The first step in combatting forgery and fraud is detailed analysis of what is being evaluated. The potential for unintended alteration varies depending on how credentials are submitted. The most secure document submission requirement is to request original credentials to be sent directly by the issuing institution to the school or evaluation agency. The reason for this very common requirement is to prevent the credentials from being handled by the applicant. While this is typically the most secure method of document submission, it can present the most challenges due to costs, processing time, and staff availability among many other factors. Upon establishing that receiving documents directly from the issuing institution is not possible, one may request sealed original documents to be submitted by the applicant. If this is also impossible, the credential evaluator may elect to work with unsealed originals, or with photocopies, submitted directly or electronically. Each method of submission carries a higher risk of potential alteration. However, given application deadlines as well as various factors affecting the availability of credentials from various places, the process must remain flexible in order to equally serve adequately prepared applicants regardless of their origin.

Involving others in the credential evaluation process is an effective way of solving problems of questionable documentation or lack of availability of documents to be sent directly. Establishing relationships with institutions sending larger volumes of students to the United States can expedite the verification process of questionable credentials. However, even without established relationships, it is not beyond the scope of an evaluator’s job to request verification of credentials from issuing institutions. It is, after all, in the best interest of institutions to provide this service because it is damaging to an institution’s reputation when individuals’ (forged) credentials do not match their academic aptitude. The verification process often requires patience, persistence, and research, but more efficient processes are emerging at several institutions across the globe.
