Enrollment Verification and Degree Certification

Enrollment Verification

The Office of the University Registrar generates enrollment verification certificates through the National Student Clearinghouse.

Verification For Students

Current Quarter Enrollment Verification

Current (and some former) University of Washington students can download a free, electronic enrollment verification instantly via the National Student Clearinghouse after logging into MyUW with a UW NetId.

Future Quarter Certificate of Registration

The University of Washington only officially verifies enrollment through the National Student Clearinghouse once the quarter has begun. If you require documentation showing that you are enrolled for a quarter that has not yet started, as long as you have already registered for courses for that future quarter, you may download an advanced registration certificate instantly via the National Student Clearinghouse. Please make sure you are logged into MyUW with your UWNetID, then select the “Advanced Registration” option. This certificate will show that you are pre-registered for a future quarter at UW.

If you believe that enrollment verification certificate you have downloaded from the National Student Clearinghouse does not contain sufficient information for the entity requesting proof of enrollment, you must email the UW Office of the University Registrar Registration and Transcripts office at regoff@uw.edu. Please be sure to include:

  • The National Student Clearinghouse Enrollment Verification Certificate you downloaded through the link at MyUW.
  • A statement as to why this form is not sufficient for the entity requiring proof of enrollment
  • Your name
  • Student ID #
  • Date of birth
  • Mailing or email address where you wish the certification letter be sent
