Transcripts and Enrollment Verifications

Official Transcripts

All students enrolled in coursework at UB after January 1, 2011 (spring 2011 semester) must request official transcripts VIA their HUB Student Center. However, if additional documentation is required to be submitted concurrently with your transcript (LSDAS report, statement of Rank) or if you are sending an expedited UPS label, please continue to use the Law School Transcript Request Form (PDF) and drop off, mail, fax (716-645-6378) or email (law-records@buffalo.edu) the forms together to Records and Registration in 304 O'Brian.  

Students whose last enrollment was prior to Jan. 1, 2011 (fall 2010 semester) should use the Law School Transcript Request Form (PDF), as you do not have access to the HUB Student Center. If additional documentation is required to be submitted concurrently with your transcript (LSDAS report, statement of Rank) or if you are sending an expedited UPS label, send the forms together. Drop off, mail, fax (716-645-6378) or email (law-records@buffalo.edu) the forms together to Records and Registration in 304 O'Brian. 

Records for the schools of Undergraduate/Graduate/Pharmacy, Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, and Dental Medicine are maintained in those schools. If you are a current or former undergraduate, graduate, or pharmacy student, please contact the Office of the University Registrar.

Unofficial Transcripts (Student Copies)

Beginning June 20, 2011, all students enrolled in coursework at UB after January 1, 2011 will be able to print their own unofficial student transcripts via their HUB Student Center. Records and Registration will no longer accept requests for unofficial transcripts from students who have such access. Requests for unofficial copies of transcripts for students who do not have access to the HUB Student Center will be honored by filling out the Law School Transcript Request Form (PDF).

Financial Service Indicators/Holds and Transcript Release

We are not permitted to provide transcript services to any current or former student who owes money to the University (tuition/fees, penalties, parking fines, library fines, telephone charges, etc) as designated by the service indicator codes above. Additionally, we cannot release transcripts for students whose names appear on the NYS Student Loan Service Center Loan Default list.

Official transcripts will not be released for students who have university financial obligations, indicated by BAG (No Access to My Account Info), BCA (No Access to My Account Info), BIL (Unpaid Bill), BJD (No Access to My Account Info), BNT (No Access to My Account Info), BPW (No Access to My Account Info), BWO (No Access to My Account Info), DEN (Dental Medicine), FIN (Department Financial Obligation), ILN (Institutional Loan Issue), LAW (Law School), and PAR (Parking Ticket) Service Indicators.

Expedited Requests

We are only able to send expediated transcript requests via UPS. Please note that UPS will not deliver to P.O. Boxes

If you have an urgent request for an official law transcript, come directly to Records and Registration, 304 O'Brian Hall and describe your situation. We can try to help you meet your deadline, including sending your transcript by UPS delivery service if you pre-pay for the shipment. Please note, we cannot guarantee same-day processing, even if a UPS label is provided.

The expedited request option is also available in HUB Self-Service for students enrolled during spring 2011 or later. All other students can select the expedited request option on the Transcript Request Form (PDF).

To purchase a shipping label, you can visit any UPS store, or go to the UPS website. Please view our instructions on filling out your prepaid UPS label (PDF).

Once purchased, please email your prepaid UPS shipping label to law-records@buffalo.edu or fax it to 716-645-6378. Be sure to include your UB person number and/or date of birth on all communications.

Apostille

Students may need to apostille (PDF) or legalize their transcript and/or diploma for use in a foreign country. The university Office of the Registrar assists students with this process by notarizing the document, and coordinating with the offices of the Erie County Clerk and New York State Secretary of State to complete the apostille. Please contact the university Office of the Registrar for additional information on completing an apostille for your transcript and/or diploma at 716-645-5698 or email to UBregistrar@buffalo.edu.

Enrollment Verification

An enrollment verification is an official document that can be used whenever verification of student enrollment 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 (NSC) 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 UB for current and historical enrollment.

More information regarding enrollment verification, including FERPA and when NSC records are updated, can be found on the University Office of the Registrar website.

Students Prior to Spring 2011, Parents, & Third Party Enrollment Verification

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 After Spring 2011 Request for Verification

Students who have been at UB spring 2011 and later can generate an Enrollment Verification Certificate via the National Student Clearinghouse. To do so, log on to your HUB Student Center (via MyUB), within the Academics section, select Enrollment Verification (within the “other academic” drop down menu). Follow the link to the National Student Clearinghouse Student Self-Service site.

Letter of Good Standing

If a letter of good standing is required for an application send an email to law-records@buffalo.edu.  The email should indicate who the letter is addressed to, the address, and if you would like the letter mailed, emailed, or you would like to pick-up the letter in person.

Degree Verification

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. Students who enrolled at UB since spring 2011 or later can view and pay their balance on their HUB Student Center (via MyUB).

Current and former students can obtain proof of degree or additional degree-related information (such as GPA) by requesting an official transcript.

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 an official transcript or indicate that degree verification is available through the National Student Clearinghouse.

Organizations (such as health insurance companies and prospective employers) can request degree verification directly from the National Student Clearinghouse. A fee is charged by the Clearinghouse for this service. Be sure to select the correct school:

  • University at Buffalo, SUNY – School of Law for JD and LLM degrees
