Verification of Enrollment, Good Standing, or Graduation
Enrollment verification is a standard letter indicating that you are currently enrolled. The letter will give your enrollment status (full-time, at least half-time, or less than half-time) and the dates of enrollment. You can use the Document Request Form to request an enrollment verification or you can email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. The email must come from your Seattle University email account.
Enrollment Verification for Lenders
Seattle University School of Law participates in National Student Clearinghouse (NSC), which provides enrollment information to most lenders. Occasionally lenders require additional verification or do not participate in the NSC. If your lender has asked for verification of enrollment, complete your portion of the verification form (usually available for download on their website) and submit the form to the School of Law Office of the Registrar.
Letter of Good Standing
A letter of good standing is similar to an enrollment verification letter but also includes information on your academic standing. You are in good academic standing if you have not been dismissed or placed on probation for academic or any other reason. You can use the Document Request Form to request a letter of good standing or you can email us your request at email@example.com. The email must come from your Seattle University email account.
Graduation verifications include your dates of attendance, a confirmation that you received a Juris Doctor degree, and your degree date. You can use a document request form to request a graduation verification letter or you can email us your request at firstname.lastname@example.org. The email must come from your Seattle University email account.
Graduation Verification for a Bar
Each bar has specific requirements for certification of graduation. Please carefully review your bar's requirements before completing the Bar Graduation Certification Request form. Submit the Bar Graduation Certification Form to the School of Law Office of the Registrar (we will coordinate with the Dean if a dean's certification is required).
The Washington State Bar, and many other state bars will ask you to complete a release as part of the application packet. They will then request a certification of graduation directly from our office. If you are applying for admission to the Washington State bar, or another bar that requests certification directly, you do not need to complete a Bar Graduation Certification Request Form.
