Enrollment & Degree Verification
Students, alumni, and previous students may require verification of their enrollment and full-time or part-time status and degree verification for jobs, insurance, loans or a variety of other services and programs. As such, UMBC has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse as its provider of enrollment and degree verification information.

Previous Students and Alumni
Third parties (prospective employers or other agencies) can verify the degree(s) that you earned from UMBC by contacting the National Student Clearinghouse at 703-742-4200 or by visiting the website: www.degreeverify.org. Alumni can also request a verification of degree directly by visiting the same website: www.degreeverify.org. Current students and alumni can also request an official transcript that includes a notation of degrees awarded as well as semester and cumulative grade point averages and course information.
