With National Student Clearinghouse, deverus will have access to 98% of student records for its background screening and background check services.

deverus, Inc., the leading provider of mission-critical workflow solutions to the background check industry, announced today that it has forged a partnership with the National Student Clearinghouse to offer an expanded array of background check services. Under this new alliance, which just launched today, clients of deverus can now quickly verify applicants’ educational history, including schools attended, degrees and certifications attained, and other key background data.

This new collaboration gives background screeners instant access to automated degree verification from 85 percent of North American colleges and universities. Instead of phoning background check companies and applicants’ universities—an arduous, time-consuming process that often requires extensive human input, paperwork and administrative tasks—the user now simply clicks a box and allows the system to do all of the work.

“This partnership is another exciting example of deverus automating and simplifying the background screening process by integrating the most popular data sources into one easily accessible system,” said Shane Long, CEO of deverus. “Administrative work comprises the vast majority of labor and its associated costs in the background screening process, so we are thrilled to take this huge step toward streamlining that process significantly.”

Jim Kathman, Vice President of Strategy and Business Development for the National Student Clearinghouse, added, “The Clearinghouse is pleased that deverus has identified our academic verifications as a way to complement its full suite of background screening tools.”
