Degree and Enrollment Verification

Degree Verifications

The College of Charleston has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to act as our agent for providing Degree Verifications.  Degree Verifications can be ordered by visiting www.degreeverify.org.

Alumni should also note that awarded degree information is also reflected on an official transcript.  For information on ordering an official transcript, please visit our Official Transcripts site.

The Office of the Registrar at the College of Charleston does not generate customized letters verifying information otherwise available through National Student Clearinghouse or on an official transcript.  If you require additional information that is not available on your official transcript or from the National Student Clearinghouse, please contact the Office of the Registrar.  Note:  The College of Charleston does not maintain class rank information.

Enrollment Verifications

Current Students

Students may obtain a free certification of enrollment (or proof of full-time enrollment) for insurance, scholarship and loan purposes by logging into MyCharleston and selecting "Enrollment Verification" from the Banner Self-Service menu. Enrollment verifications are available immediately following the drop-add deadlines for spring and fall terms. Questions about verifications should be directed to the Office of the Registrar.

Attention Military Students:  As of July 1, 2016, enrollment verifications include an anticipated graduation date (AGD).  This eliminates the extra step of having to contact the Office of the Registrar for a paper form.  Please note that the anticipated graduation date (AGD) is based on a formula that estimates completion from overall earned hours.  It may not be accurate if the student has changed their major, failed courses, or been readmitted.  It is not a guarantee of graduation.

The process for obtaining proof of enrollment is as follows:

  1. Login to MyCharleston (my.cofc.edu).
  2. On the Academic Services tab, click on Banner Self-Service in the Banner Self-Service channel.  Click on the Student folder and then Student Records.  Choose Enrollment Verification.
  3. This will take you to the National Student Clearinghouse website. Please follow the instructions for obtaining your proof of enrollment.
Employers, Background Screening Firms, and Other 3rd Parties

Third parties must use National Student Clearinghouse for verifications of student enrollment.  The Clearinghouse can be contacted at:
