Are college graduation records public?

Say you're an employer and you're looking to verify that someone's alleged degree on their resume is in fact legit. Is this information public like on a website or something?

I'm not lying on my resume or anything; I'm just wondering.

Are they held on colleges' websites?

they can always call your college and ask if you were a registered student at any point in time. its not online, not in any sort of database at least.

usually they might ask you for your college transcript if its a first job or if youre a fairly recent grad. transcripts have to be notarized and are usually sent from the college to be considered "official".

but if youve been out of college for like 5-10 years i dont think they even ask for a transcript anymore. all thats for is a reference to get a sense of your background. if you've had a job since then, they would rather use that to gauge your compatibility. its really too much trouble to go and verify every degree a person might have on their resume, particularly because a lot of people might have gotten their degrees overseas.
