FirstPoint, Inc. has launched the StudentScreener.com Web site, a national background screening solution for institutions of higher learning to conduct background checks on students and prospective students.
According to M. Scott Hall, Sr. VP and COO for FirstPoint Information Resources, “StudentScreener.com was developed in response to the increased need of colleges and universities for a streamlined student background screening tool. As part of their commitment to campus safety, a rising number of institutions are routinely conducting across-the-board student screenings during the admissions process. In addition, some areas of study like healthcare require background checks before students are approved to work in certain clinical environments. StudentScreener.com eliminates the administrative burden of conducting screenings by managing the process from start to finish.”
By using StudentScreener.com, institutional clients can customize the type of background report they desire and then simply direct students to the Web site where they enter their own background screening information and pay for the screening online. The system securely generates the background report and delivers it to the appropriate institution. StudentScreener.com also allows students to check on the progress of their report and request copies for their personal viewing.
At launch date, FirstPoint already had several institutions across the country set up to use the system and are actively exploring relationships with additional technical schools, community colleges, and universities across the U.S. For information about the system call 1-800-288-7408 ext. 3037.
