General Information

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.

The official printed verification is provided by the Verification department of the Office of Academic Records and Registrar. There are two types of printed verifications: General and Restricted. Both types of verifications contain the following information:

  • Name
  • ID
  • Enrollment history
  • Enrollment status
  • Class level
  • Current degree objective (if any)
  • Units attempted by term
  • USC degrees earned
  • Expected date of graduation
  • Print date of the verification

The restricted verification also provides the semester and cumulative USC grade point average (GPA).

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 in person, by mail, online (third-party requests) or by fax. Currently enrolled students may view their enrollment histories on OASIS.
