Enrollment and Degree Verification

Enrollment and degree verification provides confirmation of enrollment status or degree(s) conferred. Verification is used to confirm this information to insurance companies, lenders, employers, and other organizations.


Current and recent students may access enrollment and degree verification letters by logging into the MSU Student Information System. After logging in, click on the Academic Records tile and then select Enrollment Verification in the left-hand navigation.

All students, current and former, may use the National Student Clearinghouse Student Self-Service Site, which provides additional services to students at no charge:

  • Generate enrollment certificates
    If you choose to use the National Student Clearinghouse enrollment certificates, please also print a copy of MSU's authorization letter to send with the enrollment certificate. Some professional and business organizations may require proof of this authorization to accompany a certificate.
  • View enrollment history
  • View the proofs of enrollment sent to student service providers
  • Learn when deferment notices were sent to student lenders
  • Obtain a list of student loan holders
