Enrollment and Degree Verification

The Registrar’s Office will provide verification of enrollment and degree by request from a student to provide to a third party.

The National Student Clearinghouse is the designated agent for the University for verification of enrollment and degrees for current and former students. The National Student Clearinghouse follows all federal privacy laws, such as the Family Education and Privacy Rights Act. These enrollments may be used to provide proof of enrollment for loan deferments, scholarship applications, employment opportunities, and other purposes. Enrollment and degree verification documents should not be confused with official transcripts.

Current Students

Current UMBC students may access the National Student Clearinghouse by clicking the National Student Clearinghouse Student Self-Service icon below. There is no charge for this service.
This will take current students to the National Student Clearinghouse website where they have the following options of free services:

Current students may also request a letter from the University verifying enrollment for the current or upcoming term in which a student is enrolled or to request a letter from the University verifying a degree. Before requesting a degree verification, please review your unofficial transcript to ensure your degree has been posted on your transcript. There is a fee for this service.
