Verification Overview

An Official Academic Record Verification letter is a record summary that provides the dates of attendance at the university and any related statuses such as class level, full- or part-time enrollment, and degrees awarded. Individual course and grade information is not provided.

General vs. Restricted Verifications

There are two types of verifications: General and Restricted. 


With the exceptions noted below, all verification information for university-approved credit is maintained by the Verification department. Official academic record verifications are released in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and can be requested by mail, online (third-party requests) or by fax. Currently enrolled students may view their enrollment histories in OASIS.
