Enrollment/Degree Verification

Degree Verification

Once all degree requirements have been met and degrees have been awarded, official transcripts issued by the University of Illinois Springfield will reflect degree completion. See the Requesting a Transcript page for details and order forms.  Please note that degree verification letters will not be provided.

The University of Illinois Springfield has also authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide degree and enrollment verifications. If you are an employer, credit grantor, insurance company, background screening company, etc., please send requests to the National Student Clearinghouse:

Enrollment Verification

Students may provide a copy of their UIS course schedule as verification of their enrollment. Schedules can be accessed via the Student Self-Service system.

The Office of Records and Registration can also provide signed enrollment verification letters for the purpose of insurance, employment, and scholarship applications. Please note that enrollment verifications (like transcripts) are released only if a student is in good financial standing and has no outstanding financial hold(s). Requests for enrollment verification should be directed to:

Office of Records and Registration

Springfield, IL 62703-5407

Fax: (217) 206-6620

Enrollment verifications are also provided by the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC). Enrollment information is sent to NSC by UIS periodically throughout the semester. The University of Illinois Springfield has authorized the NSC to provide enrollment verifications for our students, but UIS makes no guarantee that the verification will be accepted for all enrollment verification needs. Any fees charged by the NSC for its services are not to be mistaken for University related fees; these charges are assessed by NSC and are the responsibility of the student seeking their services. In order to use the NSC site you must have a Social Security Number and an active mailing address recorded in our system.

Student Loan Deferment

Students’ enrollment for loan purposes is verified to the National Student Clearinghouse on a regular schedule during each semester. The Clearinghouse then automatically updates students’ enrollment status with all lenders. If a lender does send a deferment form to a student and insists the form be completed, sign it as required and forward it to the Office of Records and Registration. We will then send it to the National Student Clearinghouse in order for them to update the appropriate lender. Students may also verify their enrollment status by going to the National Student Clearinghouse website. The National Student Clearinghouse can be contacted directly by calling (703) 742-7791.
