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A student who has previously withdrawn from an academic program, or been administratively dropped based upon program guidelines, may petition to be reinstated in the academic program.

Replacement Diplomas

DMU replacement diplomas may be requested by completing our online request form.

  • Please note replacement diplomas are issued in the format currently used, listing the institution name as “Des Moines University”, display the signatures of the current University officials, and the degree as originally conferred.


DMU transcripts may be requested using the online transcript request form. Current students and alumni are not assessed fees for these services.

Name and Demographic Change Requests

Students and alumni submitting a name change request must submit a copy of the new SSN card and legal name-change document (e.g. marriage certificate, divorce decree, court order).  Please note that it will take several weeks to receive a new card following a request to the SSN office.

Students and alumni submitting a change to their legal sex designation must submit documentation (e.g. court documentation, updated birth certificate, driver’s license, etc.).
