Verification of Enrollment and Degrees

The Registrar’s Office provides verification of current or past enrollment and verification of degrees conferred.

Enrollment Verification

Upon written request, the Registrar’s Office will provide verification of enrollment, at no charge to the student. The standard verification includes the units and enrollment status for all current and/or past terms of enrollment at Dominican. Other information, such as the grade point average (GPA) and/or anticipated graduation date, can be included in the verification by request. Enrollment verifications may be picked up in person by the student; or may be mailed, faxed, or emailed (PDF only) to the designated recipient.

Enrollment verification request forms are available in the Registrar’s Office and on the Registrar's Office web page. A signature on the form is required before an enrollment verification will be provided. Alternatively, a student may request a verification of enrollment in writing. The request must include the following information: name, student ID number or SSN, recipient information, and a signature. Requests may be submitted in person, by fax, or by email to the Registrar’s Office.

Further information, including processing time, can be found on the Registrar’s Office website at www.dominican.edu.

Degree Verification

A degree verification includes the degree(s) conferred; the month, date, and year of conferral; and field(s) of study. The verification may sometimes also include the dates of attendance, though without detailed information regarding units or enrollment status.

Degree verification is done online through the National Student Clearinghouse. The Clearinghouse provides a PDF copy of the verification, which is available for download and/or printing, once the request has been processed. If the Clearinghouse or the Registrar’s Office are unable to verify the degree, the verification will instead show the dates of attendance for the student.

Please note that if a student has applied to graduate, and a degree verification request is placed before the degree has been conferred, the verification will indicate No Degree Awarded—Attendance Only. Please time any degree verification requests so that a pending degree will have been conferred at the time of the request.

The degree verification portal on the National Student Clearinghouse website can be accessed at nscverifications.org.
