Verification of enrollment provides proof of enrollment, graduation, student status, or other student-related information. It does not provide specific course information or grades, as found on an official transcript. Verification of enrollment is usually requested by a student's financial lender, insurance company, or sponsor. Current students can print their own verifications or can verify enrollment at the Registrar's office. Verifications are available free of charge to all current and former students.
Ways to request enrollment verification
On-line: Login to NOVASIS to utilize the verification services of National Student Clearinghouse. You may view your enrollment status, verification data, and print out your own official verification documents. Note: if you require verification of the current semester, make sure that Villanova has updated this information in NOVASIS.
If you cannot login through NOVASIS, submit an enrollment verification request using the online form.
In Person: Current and former students may order verifications of enrollment/degree in person from the Office of the Registrar (Tolentine 203). Office hours are 8:30 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday.
By Mail or Fax: Provide any forms required by the requesting agency(s), along with the information listed below. Illegible or missing information will prevent processing.
- Your name (printed) and any former names
- Your signature
- Student number (social security number)
- Specific information needed to verify enrollment (for example: semester(s) enrolled, full-time or part-time status, date of graduation, etc.)
- Number of copies needed
- Name and full address of each recipient. Verifications may also be distributed by fax (without official seal or signature), but is the responsibility of the student to determine acceptability.
