Enrollment/Degree Verification

Office Hours

We are working remotely during normal University hours of Monday through Friday between 8:30am and 4:30pm. You can join us virtually Monday through Friday, between 9:00am and 4:00pm. You can also send email to registrar@duq.edu.


An enrollment or degree verification (or certification) is a document which serves to prove that you are an enrolled student at Duquesne University or that you have graduated and earned a degree from the University. Such a document is often needed by lenders, insurance providers, or other organizations requiring proof of your enrollment and/or graduation.

How to Request a Degree or Enrollment Verification

Degree Verifications from Third-Party Organizations

Degrees are no longer verified through the Office of the University Registrar.  To conveniently serve prospective employers and other organizations requiring degree certification, Duquesne University has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide degree verifications.  This service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at DegreeVerify.

Enrollment Verifications from Third-Party Organizations

Duquesne University authorizes the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) to provide enrollment verifications to third-parties, such as insurance companies, credit card, or other financial services, etc. Third-parties must visit the National Student Clearinghouse Verification Services page to obtain enrollment verifications. Note: This service requires a membership with the NSC.

Current Duquesne University Students

Current students can use Self-Service Banner (SSB) to print their own enrollment verification to verify terms of attendance. In SSB, navigate to: Student Information > Enhanced Self-Service Banner (Version 9) > Student Profile > Print Enrollment Verification . This official verification can be shared with relevant third-parties.

This printing capability is available 24/7 based on our enrollment-reporting schedule to the National Student Clearinghouse. Fall term verifications are available in SSB after September 30th, and Spring term verifications are available after February 1st. After these dates, enrollment verifications can be printed by the student and mailed directly to the requestor.

If a student's request does not fit into the time frames described above, or if the verification must be sent directly from our office, please follow these instructions:
