Enrollment & Degree Verification

Requesting Verifications

Enrollment/degree verification provides proof of enrollment and/or degree for a student’s financial lender, insurance company, good student discounts, scholarship application, jury duty, etc. 

Requests are processed on a first come, first served basis, and usually take two to five business days to complete. However, because of a high volume of requests at the start of each semester, verifications can take as long as one week.

Loan deferments are handled through the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC).  Please refer your lender to NSC.

Current Students and Alumni

Enrollment/Degree Verifications can be ordered through OPUS for current students and alumni 2000 to present.  Alumni prior to 2000 can request verifications through email.
