What is a certification letter?
A certification letter provides official proof of your University enrollment. You may need to certify your enrollment for student loan deferment, insurance discounts, or for requests related to your scholarships or your visa.
A certification letter can include any of the following:
- Your attendance (for all terms or only the most recent term)
- For each term, your enrollment will be listed as full-time, 3/4-time, half-time, less than 1/2-time, or no units
- Cumulative GPA and credits (for all terms or only the most recent term)
- Expected graduation date (provided by the student)
- Degree/Certificate awarded
- Degree GPA (GPA as of the date your degree was conferred; available only for undergraduate degrees)
