Credentials Verification Process
Heinz College is committed to ensuring the integrity of our admission process and the reputation of our educational programs. We also want to protect and enhance the value of the degrees that we confer. Because of this commitment, we have hired a third-party provider, Application Verification, Inc., to verify the information provided in each student's application for admission. The purpose of this verification process is to protect all stakeholders of the program (including students, faculty, staff and alumni) from those who would falsify their backgrounds to gain an unfair advantage in the admission process.
We view this process as a partnership with our incoming students in maintaining the high ethical and professional standards of Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz College. Our verification process includes validating academic information, professional work experience including duration/title (we do not verify salary data), and recommendation information.
