Degree and Enrollment Verification

Need to prove that you’re a student at the University of South Carolina or that you earned your degree? We have a few different ways we can help.

National Student Clearinghouse

The National Student Clearinghouse reports student enrollment and degree information as an authorized agent for the University of South Carolina. Participating guarantors, lenders or service providers will usually not require an individual enrollment verification letter from USC.

Enrollment Verification

Current Students

Enrollment verification is available to current students at no charge through Self Service Carolina. Choose the Student Records tab, then select Enrollment Verification Service. Here you can download a printable PDF copy of your enrollment certificate.

Alumni and Third Parties

The National Student Clearinghouse provides enrollment verification to alumni and third parties through their web portal. You may also reach the National Student Clearinghouse by phone at 703-742-4200.

Degree Verification

Degree Confirmation

To check the status of a degree being posted, alumni should view their Academic Transcript in Self Service Carolina (choose Student Records tab, then Academic Transcript). 

Alumni who wish to request a transcript or degree verification showing their posted degree should wait approximately 30 business days after graduation before submitting a request.


Alumni who require degree verification should request an official transcript.

Third Parties

University of South Carolina has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide degree verifications. They can be contacted through their web portal or by phone at 703-742-4200.
