Degree Verification for Employers

UC Davis has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) to act as its agent for purposes of degree verification.  This service is available only to students who are not All Records Confidential. The student’s name when enrolled and date of birth are required for identification purposes. For information, instructions, & fees, contact the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) by phone or website.

Student degrees are posted to student records approximately eight-twelve weeks after the end of the term in which they are graduating.

Degree Verification for Students

If a student has been approved by their college for graduation and a degree has been posted to their record (approximately eight–twelve weeks after the end of the term in which you graduate), the student can order a degree verification. Degree verifications display the degree completed without GPA, course titles or grades.

Many campus offices are involved in facilitating the degree awarding process, taking several months after the last day of the term to process in full, and therefore the Office of the University Registrar is unable to expedite or rush degree verification letters before all students graduating that term are officially degree awarded. The Office of the University Registrar promptly processes letters after all campus offices have worked together to degree awarded students.

If the student has not been awarded a degree and needs proof of the completion of their degree work, see Completion of Undergraduate Degree Requirements Verification, below.

Completion of Undergraduate Degree Requirements Verification

Completion of Undergraduate Degree Requirements Verifications provides information regarding the completion of degree requirements prior to the official posting of that degree to a student's academic record. This verification may be requested by undergraduate students only who have filed to graduate and whose final grades are available for the student's last term of enrollment. Graduate and professional school students should consult their college for more information regarding a similar service. Completion of Undergraduate Degree Requirements Verifications is frequently requested for purposes of employment, promotion, and military commission; as well as admission to other programs, institutions or universities.

Verifications cannot be approved/processed until the student's final grades are in and all their courses needed for graduation are completed. For example, if a student is graduating and taking required courses towards their degree during their last term of enrollment, graduation cannot be approved by the student's dean's office until final grades are reported; usually about two weeks after the last day of finals. If the student's course work is not completed, the Office of the University Registrar is unable to expedite or rush verification letters. The Office of the University Registrar promptly processes letters after all final grades are reported and the dean's offices approve each student's graduation.
