Request Verification-The HUB - Carnegie Mellon University

Request a Verification

Current Students

Currently enrolled students may order verifications on Student Information Online by clicking on "Request Verification" under the Academic Info tab.

Verifications can be mailed, faxed, or ordered as a .pdf. Typical processing time is 2-3 business days. All non-faxed verifications come in individual envelopes.

Verifications can include any of the following information:

  • Name
  • Local address
  • Class
  • College
  • Field of Study/Major
  • Attendance date(s)
  • Graduation date(s)
  • Degree(s) awarded
  • Semester/Cumulative QPA
  • Good academic standing (undergraduates only)
  • Maintenance of minimum QPA required by college (undergraduates only)
  • Enrolled for the current semester
  • Registered for the current semester

Note: We CANNOT fax QPA's, as it is not directory information.

If a student has submitted a Directory Information Restriction (.pdf) form, Carnegie Mellon will not release directory information without the student's consent. Third parties (insurance companies, other institutions, etc.) who request an enrollment/degree verification for a student will be unable to do so unless the student provides them with a signed release.

Alumni

Former students may submit a signed Verification Request (.pdf) form. The form may be submitted by the following methods:

Alternatively, students can send a signed letter with the following information:

  • Former names (if any)
  • Where the verification should be mailed, number to which the verification should be faxed, or request HUB pickup

Parents of Current Students

Have the student order a verification letter through Student Information Online.

Third Parties

Inquiries can be made through the National Student Clearinghouse.

Carnegie Mellon, in accordance with FERPA, defines directory information as:

  • Student Name
  • Local Address
  • Local Phone Number
  • E-mail address
  • Class
  • College
  • Department
  • Attendance Dates
  • Graduation Date(s)
  • Degree(s) awarded or expected

For any other information (including QPA), a signed release from the student is required. In addition, students may request that their directory information not be released without their consent. In such cases, a signed release is required, even if the information requested is directory information.

Verifications by Phone

We can only verify directory information about a student over the phone. In addition, students may request that their directory information not be released without their consent. In such cases, we cannot release the information, even if it is directory information.
