Degrees of Deceit: Understanding the landscape of counterfeit credentials and university admissions fraud

Join Jamie Carmichael and Sarah Elaine Eaton for a provocative session about counterfeit credentials such as fake degrees and tampered transcripts. Admissions fraud remains an understudied area of academic integrity and educational ethics. Learn about some of the telltale signs of admissions fraud in higher education.

This session will be of particular interest to those who handle admissions files for post-secondary institutions, including: academic leaders, registrarial staff, administrative staff, and academics who sit on admissions committees. Although this session is framed within the context of Canadian higher education, many of the concepts and tips will likely apply to those in other jurisdictions, as admissions fraud is a global concern.

This session will take place from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Mountain Time (Calgary, Canada) via Zoom. Login instructions will be sent to registered participants within one day of the live event. The live session can accommodate 300 participants, but everyone who registers will receive a link to watch a recorded version of the presentation after the live event.

By the end of this session, participants will:

  • Understand foundational concepts related to admissions fraud.
  • Be aware of the business models that thrive in this landscape, and the potential for blackmail with counterfeit credentials. 
  • Assess how those involved with admissions processes can better identify fraudulent documents.

Presenters:

Jamie Carmichael is the Associate Registrar, Carleton University, and is completing her Master’s research on contract cheating and academic integrity. She has presented or co-presented her work at the International Society for Professional Innovation Management (ISPIM) conference (2019) and the International Center for Academic Integrity annual conference (2020).

Sarah Elaine Eaton is an Associate Professor, Werklund School of Education and the inaugural Educational Leader in Residence, Academic Integrity at the Taylor Institute of Teaching and Learning, University of Calgary.
