Enrollment Verification

Enrollment information is updated throughout the semester. Please refer to the Reporting Schedule for further details. The first update of the semester is typically submitted during the 3rd week of the month and will be available approximately the 4th week.  Students needing an enrollment verification sooner may submit a  Request for Letter Form  (Google form).

Please note: Zero (0) credit only enrollment is not considered official enrollment. Students enrolled in zero credit only classes will not be reported as actively enrolled. At least 1 credit hour is required to be considered actively enrolled in any given semester.
