Verification of Enrollment or Graduation
You may request official verification from the PSR registrar of either your current enrollment status or your alumni status at any time during the year. Requests for letters must be sent in writing to the PSR Registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org. These services are currently free of charge.
Verification of Current Enrollment
Often during the year, you may receive requests from various institutions such as loan officers (SallieMae, your bank), scholarship funds, immigration agencies, or school districts for verification of your status.
Note that if you need enrollment verification for a loan agency, PSR and all GTU schools report these enrollments officially through the National Student Clearinghouse at least six times a year: three times spanning the Fall and three times spanning the Spring. So if you have a loan payment that needs to be deferred, wait until those reporting times. Otherwise, if you have a pending payment due that can't wait, download a deferment request form from your loan provider website for your registrar to sign. Please remember to fill out and sign your portion of the form before giving to your registrar.
Usually churches and other agencies giving scholarships or other forms of funding will require an official letter signed by the registrar on letterhead. Email email@example.com to request one, and a secured pdf of the letter will be emailed to you or the email destination you provide. Please indicate if you require hard copy only if pdf will not be accepted, and also please ensure you are actually registered for the semester you are requesting verification of enrollment by checking "My Class Schedule" before making this request.
For current students, the most common pieces of information included in a basic enrollment verification letter include:
- your name
- your current degree or certificate program
- your full- or part- time status based on your registration load as of the date of the letter issued
- your anticipated graduation date which is always calculated as the expected program time as published in your program manual, and if you have exceeded that, the next available conferring date, regardless of your own projected plans to stay in the program longer.
- dates of semester inquired about
Additional information you wish to be included in the letter may also be requested but not guaranteed. For example, you may request that the letter include the actual number of credits currently registered for or your denominational affiliation information at your explicit written request. Information that the PSR Registrar may refuse to include at your request might include registration confirmation for registrations that have not yet occurred or registration confirmation for registration at a non-GTU consortial school from which you plan to transfer credits later.
Verification of Graduation or Alumni Status
For alumni, the most common pieces of information included in a basic graduation verification letter include:
- your name
- the degree or certificate program from which you graduated
- the date or term/year in which the degree/certificate was conferred
- confirmation that you graduated from PSR
While we normally issue these verification letters for graduates, we also offer a similar letter verifying pending graduation in cases which students may have completed all graduation requirements early and are just waiting for the conferring date to have the notation reflected on their official transcript. These letters are also usually issued as secured pdf's unless hard copy is specifically requested.
