Degree & Enrollment Verifications

The University Registrar's Office handles all verifications and other degree-related information. There are three types of verifications:

Degree Verification: Officially provides proof of degree(s) awarded, and/or graduation date, and/or expected degree(s), and/or expected graduation date.

Enrollment Verification: Officially provides proof of current enrollment at Carnegie Mellon University.

Early Completion Verification: A student's program completion date may be earlier than his or her graduation date, depending on program requirements; therefore, an Early Completion Verification may be requested. 

Request Verification

Choose the appropriate category:

Go to Student Information Online (SIO). You can download a PDF verification of enrollment and/or degree by selecting Request Verification under the Academic Info tab. You may also use SIO to request that a verification be mailed or faxed. Typical processing time is 2–3 business days. All non-faxed verifications are delivered in individual envelopes.

Former students may submit a signed Verification Request (pdf) form. The form can be submitted in the following ways:

Please note: We are unable to fax QPAs, as it is not directory information.
You may ask your student to request a verification letter through Student Information Online (SIO). Your student may also invite you to use My Plaid Student, which allows invited users, such as parents, guardians and others, to request verifications.
