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 partner with a third-party provider, ProVerify, Powered by Application Verification, Inc., to verify the information provided in applications for admission. Heinz College reserves the right to require all admitted students to successfully complete the Credentials Verification Process to be eligible to enroll. 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. Students required to complete a verification will be notified by the Heinz College Office of Admission.
