How to check a fake degree?

There are two ways that a person can check a degree to know if it is fake or not.

Contact the university or institution

Contacting a university or college to check a fake degree is among the most common options most people do when checking someone’s educational background.

The first step you need to do is contact the university by calling or mailing them their official contact information.

Make sure you check online about the university before contacting the university from provided degree because if the degree is fake, the contact information mentioned there is probably the same.

It’s better to send an e-mail or letter to the university rather than making a call because it may take some time to gather the details if the documents are old.

Note:- While writing a mail to the university, remember to include all the details such as Roll Number, Registration number, Enrollment number, and other details included in the documents because this can help the university to find the degree if it is original or not.

Check online

There is another instant option if you want to do it yourself and don’t want to wait for a couple of days.

You can check the degree online using the roll number of the person who has submitted the degree.

Just go to the university’s website and look for the result section as most of the university has them in their website and now every institution provides the online result.

But there’s one problem

Steps to check a fake degree online using results.

  • Visit the official website of the university of college.
  • Search for the result option.
  • Look for the year you are interested in.
  • Input roll number or name required and get the result.

After doing this, if you don’t get the result, it means that the degree is fake. Because all the results first publish on the website, their original copy with a degree is provided by the university or college.

Remember one thing that most universities keep the records of results 5-10 years. If you look for results much older than that and don’t find them, you can go with the first option.
