Options available to students when Requesting a Document for International Use
Education verifications are official documents from the Office of the University Registrar of UC Davis. They are printed on letterhead and include our legal seal and the University Registrar’s signature. Education verifications provide information regarding enrollment status and include your name, student identification number, start and end dates of the selected quarter, status (full time or part-time), and expected graduation date. The verification may contain other specific information such as GPA, enrollment history, or units for the term. See the Education Verification Request Form for a complete list of information available.
Education verifications are unique to the quarter they are requested for. Education verifications are not transcripts; they do not contain a complete list of courses, grades and GPA for each term. If this is the information you require, please see the Transcripts webpage.
Enrollment verifications are frequently used to verify enrollment status for eligibility for financial aid and/or services such as health insurance, car insurance, county agencies, subsidized child care, loan deferments and scholarships. You must be enrolled in classes for a given term in order for us to provide you with an enrollment verification for that term. If your fees have not yet been paid for the term, the following notation will appear: "This student is not considered a registered student for the term listed above. The student has enrolled in courses but has not paid fees for the term".
GPA verifications are often used for scholarships and good student discounts. We can provide verification including UC GPA once grades are official for the quarter, approximately two - four weeks after the end of the term.
Completion of Undergraduate Degree Requirements Verification
Completion of Undergraduate Degree Requirements Verifications provide information regarding the completion of degree requirements prior to the official posting of that degree to a student's academic record. This verification may only be requested by undergraduate students who have filed to graduate and whose final grades are available for the student’s last term of enrollment. This type of verification is available to undergraduate students only. Graduate and professional school students, please consult your college for more information regarding a similar service. This verification is frequently requested for purposes of employment, promotion, and military commission as well as admission to other programs, institutions or universities. Rush processing is not available for this request.
If you have been approved by your college for graduation and your degree has been posted to your record (approximately eight - ten weeks after the end of the term in which you graduate) you can order a degree verification. This type of verification will verify the degree you have completed without GPA, Course Titles or Grades.
If you have not yet been awarded a degree and would like some proof of the completion of your degree work, please consider ordering our Completion of Undergraduate Degree Requirements Verification.
