FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

  • BSI continues to provide NCC with tools to stop the sharing of log in passwords
  • BSI’s revolutionary technology helps combat financial aid fraud and academic cheating
  • BioSig-ID meets all Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) Federal Title IV security and authentication requirements

DALLAS, TX – August 09, 2017 - Biometric Signature ID, the leading developer of biometric ID verification software solutions, announced that Northampton Community College (NCC) has renewed their contract to use BioSig-ID and BioProof-ID as they take steps to deter academic fraud and ensure compliance with HEOA accreditation and Office of Inspector General regulations.

“With over 8,000 students already using the software, we are thrilled to continue our partnership with Northampton Community College,” said Jeff Maynard, President / CEO, Biometric Signature ID. “As the stakes get higher to pass courses and FSA grants become easier to obtain, more students look for ways to engage in academic cheating and financial aid fraud. Our biometric technology ensures that those students who signed-up for a class are the same individuals completing the work throughout the course. It’s a huge win for higher-ed institutions and stops those looking to cheat the system.” BioSig-ID also incorporates next-level technology that can identify cheating and financial aid fraud rings.

Twice patented, BioSig-ID™ provides the strongest method of identity authentication on the market today: multi-factor authentication. With no additional hardware to purchase, BSI’s software provides an innovative, cost effective solution that can be used on any mobile, tablet, or PC device.

With a traditional pin and password solution, it is too easy for students to cheat the academic system and get others to do their work. Most students will not cheat while being watched with proctored exams for fear of being expelled. Consequently, the cheating opportunity occurs in all non-proctored assessments since they are only password protected. This means others can access and complete work on behalf of the student easily. BioSig-ID is ideally suited to stop the sharing of passwords and stop the cheating.  

In addition to authenticating students, NCC has adopted BioProof-ID to verify government issued ID. Using remote agents and web cams, NCC students can call at any time to confirm their ID and have a witness watch them complete their BioSig-ID password before they have access to their course. NCC is a leader in deploying student ID verification and using remote agents to verify government issued ID.

BioSig-ID eliminates concerns about academic integrity, student aid fraud and privacy, while helping higher learning institutions maintain accreditation and compliance standards.
