Certifications

Request Form

Students may obtain a letter of certification of their enrollment from the University Registrar. Please use this Certificate of Enrollment Request Form to request certification.
 

Eligible for Certification

The University Registrar is unable to certify enrollment if a student is an incoming first-year or transfer student until registration has been completed. Instead, we may write a letter of acceptance. We may write a letter of pre-registration once a student has pre-registered. This letter is only valid for pre-registration and not for students currently enrolled for the upcoming semester. We may certify past enrollment but not beyond the current semester. An expected date of graduation can be stated.
 

Ineligible for Certification

The University Registrar is unable to write letters of good standing. Please see your Dean. Information concerning tuition payments, cash, etc., must be directed to Student Accounts. Information concerning non-credit enrollment must be directed to the School of Continuing Studies or the Center for Professional Development.
