Enrollment/Degree Verification

Duquesne University offices will be closed for the holidays beginning Wednesday, December 24, 2014 through Sunday, January 4, 2015. All transcript requests* and enrollment verification requests* received by 11:00am on Tuesday, December 23 will be processed the same day. All requests received after 11:00am will be processed when University offices re-open on January 5th. The last express mail shipment of 2014 will be sent from our office on Tuesday, December 23 at 11:00am. The first express mail shipment of 2015 will be sent on Monday, January 5, 2015.

When we re-open on Monday, January 5, 2015, the processing of requests will resume. We will have a large volume of requests to sort and process, so we ask for your patience as we fill the requests. Please avoid calling the office on Monday, January 5, if possible, so that we can fulfill the requests as quickly as possible. Processing time will be extended to 2-4 business days during the first week of the year.

Degree verification is handled online at www.degreeverify.org year-round. Transcript requests for current students can also be submitted through DORI and Self-Service Banner. Former students can fax transcript requests to our office in our absence.

Thank you for your cooperation, and enjoy the holidays.

*Requests will be completed provided that the student transcript data resides in our student system and not just as hard-copy. Other provisions include the receipt of signed requests and that there are no issues involved that would prohibit timely processing.

Requests for verification cannot be accepted over the phone, by email, or by a third party.

How to Request a Degree Verification

Degrees are no longer verified through the Office of the University Registrar.  To conveniently serve prospective employers and other organizations who require degree certification, Duquesne University has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide degree verifications.  This service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at Degreeverify.org.

If you are a Duquesne University graduate and require a degree verification for your own purpose, download, sign, and return the Enrollment Verification Form at the bottom of this page.  Indicate that you are requesting a degree verification.

How to Request a Verification of Enrollment

An enrollment verification (or certification) is a document which serves to prove that you are an enrolled student at Duquesne University. Such a document is often needed by insurance providers, lenders, or other organizations requiring proof of your enrollment at Duquesne.

Current Students

Current students can print their own enrollment verification using Self-Service Banner depending on the date it is needed. More specifically, they can be printed based on the time frames below.

  • Fall term verifications can be printed after September 30th.
  • Spring term verifications can be printed after February 1st.
  • Summer term verifications can be printed after August 31st.

This printing capability is available 24/7 based on the dates above, and enrollment verifications can be printed and mailed directly to the requestor.

If a student's request does not fit into the time frames described above, Self-Service Banner can be used to request an enrollment verification. Such a verification will be mailed directly from the Office of the University Registrar to the recipient.

To print or request an enrollment verification, log on to DORI, and click on the Self-Service Banner tab. Follow either of these paths:

Print enrollment verification:  Student Information > Student Records > Print Enrollment Verification

Request enrollment verification:  Student Information > Student Records > Request Enrollment Verification

Selecting the PRINT option will take you to the National Student Clearinghouse website, our authorized provider of enrollment verifications. Once on their site, choose either "Current Enrollment" (current semester), or "All Enrollment" (all semesters), and click on the "Obtain an enrollment certificate" link. Your enrollment verification certificate will open as a PDF document that can be printed from your web browser.

Former Students

Former students can download, sign and return the Enrollment Verification Form.

Please provide the following information:

  • Your full name
  • The last four digits of your social security number
  • The years of attendance you wish to verify
  • The address to which the verification should be sent

Duquesne University authorizes the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) to provide enrollment verifications to third-parties, such as insurance companies, credit card, or other financial services, etc.  Third-parties must visit http://www.enrollmentverify.org to obtain enrollment verifications.
