Frequently, you will be called on the verify the educational record of a prospective employee. The information to be verified might be whether a particular degree has been earned or whether a specialized, non-degree course of instruction has been completed. The attached file contains a sample letter that may be used to request information from an educational institution. The contents of the letter should be modified to include requests only for the information that you need. As noted in the letter, you will want to include a copy of a release form, signed by the prospective employee, that authorizes the school to release the requested information. Such a form is available elsewhere in this area.
The file is in rich text format (RTF) that is suitable for use with most word processing programs used in the Windows environment.
