How does Course Hero verify educators?

We leverage a third-party service, SheerID, to complete verifications. SheerID checks teaching credentials by running user-provided personal information—such as first and last name—against their official online database.

As part of the verification process, we may also ask educators to submit a form of accepted documentation confirming their affiliation with an educational institution. Once the verification process is complete, personal information and documentation are completely purged. Learn more about SheerID’s privacy policy here.
