Background Screening for Colleges and Universities

Get Our Updates

In an educational environment, hiring practices are hugely important to providing a secure and inviting atmosphere for learning. With comprehensive background checks, HR pros can get the clearest picture of each candidate. When you work with Atlantic, you can rest assured that you are getting that picture quickly and accurately.

A Commitment to Education

We’re members and supporters of the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources (CUPA-HR), an association created primarily to assist HR professionals in higher education with trends, research, and discussions about all aspects of human resources. We’ve also completed the HEVCAT (Higher Education Community Vendor Assessment Toolkit) and will be happy to provide it per request.

Integrates With HR Tech

As frontrunners in all things technology, we also know how important integrating all of your ATS, HRIS, and HCM technologies is. It’s why we partner with some of the top systems out there, including industry favorites like PageUp, UKG (Pro and Ready), and Cornerstone OnDemand. With 50+ integrations currently offered, we’re sure there’s one that aligns with your team’s needs!

Background Screening for Colleges and Universities

Criminal Background Checks

We provide a full line of quick, compliant employee background checks for employers looking to hire the best talent. Our criminal background checks are verified by humans, not AI. Our deep experience serving educational institutions ensures that you, your candidates, and your community will benefit.

Social Media Screening

Ten years ago, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) confirmed social media screening is just another part of a consumer report, which means it falls under the Fair Credit Reporting Act. This means you can’t just be scrolling on Twitter during your lunch break, trying to find suspicious tweets from your latest applicant. That’s where we come in. Using third-party guarantees that you are getting certified results from trained analysts, with personal and protected information redacted: you’ll only receive results of flagged content belonging to the candidate.

Criminal Monitoring

Even when you do a thorough background check when you hire, what happens after they secure a spot with your institution? Ongoing criminal monitoring could be the answer to identifying and mitigating risk before it affects your community.

Verification and Credentialing

No matter what type of credentialing you’re looking for, chances are Atlantic is more than happy to offer it! Looking to grow your provider network so you can continue to provide the best care from healthcare professionals? Or perhaps you’re interested in Anti-Money Laundering (AML) or Know Your Customer (KYC) for your screening needs? Read more about these emerging searches in our industry!

Drug Testing

We offer an electronic Chain of Custody 5-panel, 10-panel, and DOT drug screening for your convenience. With an all-inclusive fee including MRO review, Atlantic utilizes all Quest and Labcorp locations across the United States and internationally. We also offer the ability to customize panels, such as removing THC from showing in a drug screening.
