Background screening is an important part of the due diligence process to help keep campuses safe against acts of violence. Consistently checking for criminal records is a preventive measure that can protect a school’s reputation and safeguard against potential lawsuits.
More than 60 percent of colleges consider applicants’ criminal histories in admissions decisions, but less than half of those have formal policies for how to do so.
Applicants complete a simple online background form, provide their consent via e-signature, and receive the appropriate compliance documents, reducing data entry errors and administrative costs.
With the right planning and customized screening solutions, a student background checks policy can help institutions of higher education keep their students and faculty safe from harm.
