Degree or Enrollment Verification

DMU has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide letters of enrollment and degree verifications (a fee may be required).  State board forms must be completed by the Office of the Registrar, and there is no fee for this service.

For Currently Enrolled students (no fee required):


A student who has previously withdrawn from an academic program, or been administratively dropped based upon program guidelines, may petition to be reinstated in the academic program.  Please utilize the procedure and accompanying form to initiate such a petition.
