Definition and Description
Verifications of enrollment status, graduation, and other information to lenders, employers, or insurance agencies are completed by the Office of the Registrar (320 Carrington Hall, 836-5520). Verifications are normally processed within 24 hours. The Office of the Registrar also participates in an enrollment verification program through an organization called the National Student Clearinghouse. The Clearinghouse is a source for instant verification of post-secondary student enrollment and graduation data. This service is paid for and utilized by lenders, guarantor, health insurers, credit issuers, employers, background screening firms, and other organizations so they can efficiently and accurately verify academic status of their clients. Students and organizations may contact the National Student Clearinghouse by email at email@example.com or may call 703-742-7791 to learn more.
A standard enrollment verification letter will list the student's status (full-, half-, or less-than-half-time) along with the dates of the semester. Additional information, such as a parent's name or insurance ID number, or other types of verification (expected graduation date, enrollment history, etc.) may be added to a standard enrollment verification letter upon request.
The privacy of student information is protected under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Therefore, Missouri State can release only selected information about a student, designated as "Directory Information," without the student's written consent (or as otherwise specifically allowed under FERPA). Refer to the Notification of Student Rights for a listing of the categories of information that have been designated as directory information at Missouri State University. As a student at Missouri State, if you wish to have non-directory information included in your enrollment verification letter, please print, complete, and sign a Request for Enrollment Verification Letter Form. This form may then be mailed, faxed or hand delivered to the Office of the Registrar for processing.
