Verification of Enrollment or Degree

Enrollment/ Degree/ GPA Verification

The Registrar’s office will provide verification letters for students. The four types of letters available are:

  • Enrollment verification, see Enrollment Status details.
  • Grade Point Average (GPA)
  • Pending Degree (student has applied for graduation)
  • Degree (after degree awarded)

Walk-in Services


Students may request a verification letter for themselves from Window R in the Student Services Center.   The staff will print the letter(s) while the student waits at the counter.

All the third parties (such as other universities, potential employers, licensing boards, etc) must place their requests through National Student Clearinghouse (NSC). Note:

  • Requires an online account with NSC. 
  • Verification services are normally available 24/7.
