Enrollment & Degree Verification

Beginning September 19, 2011, official enrollment and degree verification is available only through the National Student Clearinghouse for all current and former UB students including SUNY Buffalo Law Students. SUNY Buffalo Law School will no longer provide verification in any other manner.

Enrollment Verification

An enrollment verification is an official document that can be used whenever enrollment verification of student status is required for scholarship purposes, medical coverage, jury duty, car insurance, etc. It does not include individual course or grade information and does not provide GPA. Enrollment verification through the National Student Clearinghouse includes term start date, term end date, enrollment status (full-time, half-time, less than half-time), expected graduation date, status effective date, and the date certified by the Law School for current and historical enrollment.

Organizations (such as health insurance companies and prospective employers) can request enrollment verification directly from the National Student Clearinghouse. Select the "Verify Current Enrollment" option in the middle of the page after logging on to the site. A fee of $2.50 is charged by the Clearinghouse for this service.

Students who have been at UB spring 2011 and later can generate a free Enrollment Verification Certificate via the National Student Clearinghouse. To do so, log on to your HUB Student Center (via MyUB), click on the Academics link, and choose the Enrollment Verification hyperlink on the bottom left side of the Academics page. Additionally, students can also request an official transcript through the HUB Student Center (via MyUB) to be sent directly to a third party.

Parents and former students may generate and print an Enrollment Verification Certificate via the National Student Clearinghouse website. Select the "Verify Current Enrollment" option in the middle of the page after logging on to the site. A fee of $2.50 is charged by the Clearinghouse for this service. Additionally, former students can also request a free official transcript (PDF) for this purpose.

**If the organization requesting verification has its own form, students or parents should complete the portion of the form with their information and then attach the Enrollment Verification Certificate from the Clearinghouse or an official transcript. SUNY Buffalo Law School does not complete such forms.

Degree Verification

NOTE: If you owe money to the University (such as an outstanding balance on your student accounts, Parking & Transportation fees, library fines or breakage fees) degree information cannot be released.

Organizations (such as health insurance companies and prospective employers) can request degree verification directly from the National Student Clearinghouse. A fee of $10.00-11.50 is charged by the Clearinghouse for this service.
