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.
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 can use Self-Service Banner to print their own enrollment verification or to request that an enrollment verification be sent directly from our office.
Students can print their own enrollment verification for Fall or Spring terms based on the schedule below.
- Fall term verifications can be printed after September 30th.
- Spring term verifications can be printed after February 1st.
This printing capability is available 24/7 based on the dates above, and enrollment verifications can be printed by the student and mailed directly to the requestor.
If a student's request does not fit into the time frames described above, or if the verification must be sent directly from our office, Self-Service Banner can be used to request an enrollment verification.
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 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 the National Student Clearinghouse Verification Services page to obtain enrollment verifications.
