I'm just curious how UpWork is able to validate college degrees? I have two myself, but I've never been asked by this site to provide transcripts, which would prove my enrollment, graduation, and GPA...is there a plan on doing something like an educational background check for this in the future?

If they did, they'd kill off like 80% of freelancers from certain places cuz all of them have a masters in computer applications.

 

You're in the US, so they can call and verify your degree. You don't have to supply anything for them to check.

 Given the current issues surrounding the verification reliability of UPwork personnel, this would likely grind the Upwork pipeline to a halt. 

 

(Though I understand others perspective on the matter.)
