Order Paper Verifications

Students are able to request hard-copy verifications online. Students with holds on their records will have their requests rejected, unless they are attempting to defer student loans. In these cases the requester must show the appropriate supporting documentation at the time of the request.

Current and recently enrolled students can check for holds on OASIS. Students should also check their OASIS accounts to ensure that any pending grades, degrees or changes have been posted to their records prior to requesting a verification.

This service, to be used solely for official verifications, is available only to students enrolled in classes in 1980 or later. 

The University of Southern California has authorized Parchment to act as its agent for the processing of online verification orders. Parchment collects all required fees and forwards the request to the USC Registrar’s office, where verifications are printed and released. 


  1. You will be asked to create an account on the verification site. First-time users must sign and submit a Consent to Release form before a verification order can be processed.
  2. When placing your order, you will need to enter your academic record ID (10-digit USC ID or nine-digit SSN) and your dates of attendance at USC.
  3. Have your credit card name, number, and expiration date available. There is a $2 processing charge per order. Visa, MasterCard and Discover are accepted. Payment on the card will be preauthorized, but your credit card will not be billed until the verification order is fulfilled by USC.
  4. Confirmation will be emailed to you when your order has been processed. Official verifications may be ordered any time through Parchment.

This service is available from approximately 12 a.m. to 11 p.m. Pacific Time. However, requests are processed Monday through Friday during normal business hours, except on holidays and during winter recess. 

For questions or difficulty with the Parchment site, please contact the USC Registrar’s office at gtv@usc.edu
