Verification of Enrollment, Good Standing, or Graduation

Enrollment Verification and Letter of Good Standing

Enrollment verification is a standard letter indicating that you are currently enrolled (see below for loan forbearance verification). The letter will give your enrollment status (full-time, at least half-time, or less than half-time) and the dates of enrollment. This can also be used for a Letter of Good Standing if you have never been dismissed from the School of Law. You can use the Document Request Form to request an enrollment verification or you can email your request to lawreg@seattleu.edu from your SU 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.

Graduation Verification

Graduation verifications include your dates of attendance, a confirmation that you received a Juris Doctor degree, and your degree date. You can use the Document Request Form to request an enrollment verification or you can email your request to lawreg@seattleu.edu from your SU 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). This request takes two weeks to process.

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.
