Degree & Enrollment Verifications
The University Registrar's Office handles all verifications and other degree-related information. There are four types of verification: Degree, Enrollment, Early Completion and Course Description. Learn about each and find instructions for requesting a verification. All verifications are produced in PDF format and delivered via email.
Degree Verifications officially provide proof of degree(s) awarded and graduation date, or expected degree(s) and expected graduation date.
Enrollment Verifications officially provide proof of current enrollment at Carnegie Mellon University.
Students whose program completion dates are earlier than their graduation dates may request Early Program Completion Verifications.
Please choose the appropriate category below to find instructions for making your verification request.
