Verification Requirement for all Enrolling Students
We are committed to ensuring the integrity of our admissions process and the reputation of our educational programs. We also want to protect and enhance the value of the degrees that we confer. The purpose of the background check is to protect all stakeholders of our programs (students, faculty, staff and alumni) from those who would falsify their backgrounds to gain an unfair advantage in the admissions process. We have made the decision to implement an independent verification process of all application materials for any master's student enrolling in the Heinz College. We believe that this verification will support our efforts to ensure integrity throughout the program. Upon admission, you will receive more details about this process.
