ENROLLMENT AT WESLEYAN

 

ATTENTION ALL OUTSIDE AGENCIES SEEKING DEGREE OR ENROLLMENT VERIFICATION:

Wesleyan University has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide degree and enrollment verification.  If you are an employer or background screening firm requesting this information, please contact the National Student Clearinghouse.  National Student Clearinghouse may be contacted at:

 

ENROLLMENT & GRADUATION DATES

The Registrar's Office responds to student requests for verification of enrollment and leaves of absences and handles the processing of certification of enrollment letters for undergraduates.  Graduate students in the M.A./Ph.D. and GLS programs should contact their respective offices.

New undergraduates and returning upperclassmen officially enroll in the university each semester by visiting a web site in their electronic portfolio from any computer on the Wesleyan campus. Students will also be asked to verify their personal data, which includes addresses, emergency contacts and parent information.

Please note that the Registrar's Office cannot verify enrollment for a given semester until students have officially enrolled in the University for that semester.  Therefore, certification of enrollment requests cannot be processed until after the first day of classes, provided that the student has officially enrolled.  The Academic Calendar provides the dates for each semester's first day of classes.   During peak periods, particularly at the start of the semester when we receive a high volume of requests, forms may take between 3 -5 days to be processed.

Students now have the option of printing out an official proof of enrollment through their electronic portfolio.  The Enrollment Verification link is located under Enrollment Status in the portfolio. PLEASE NOTE THAT CURRENT SEMESTER ENROLLMENT INFORMATION IS NOT SUBMITTED TO THE NATIONAL STUDENT CLEARINGHOUSE UNTIL THE DROP/ADD PERIOD HAS ENDED.  If you require enrollment verification during the Drop/Add period, please submit a certification of enrollment request to the Registrar's Office.

Certification of enrollment requests may be submitted electronically or, if you prefer, you can download the Certification of Enrollment Request form if other documentation needs to accompany the certification letter.  Enrollment request forms and additional documentation can be faxed to (860) 685-2601, or mailed to:

If enrollment verification is required between semesters, particularly during the summer months, the Registrar's Office can produce a provisional letter stating that the student is expected to enroll for the upcoming semester, provided that the student has been admitted to and accepted admission to Wesleyan for the upcoming year or is a continuing student in good standing. This provisional letter is typically accepted by insurance companies. The Registrar's Office will then follow-up with a letter confirming enrollment once the semester has started and the student has officially enrolled.  If you are requesting a provisional enrollment verification, please note this on the request form under special instructions. The Registrar's Office sends a list of all students who are expected to enroll in the University that semester, who have been admitted and accepted admission to Wesleyan or are continuing students in good standing, to the National Student Clearinghouse prior to each semester. This occurs on or about August 25 for the fall semester and on or about January 10 for the spring semester.

If you have been asked to provide evidence of having graduated in good standing from Wesleyan for a health professions school, please contact Peggy Carey Best, Health Professions Advisor, about securing a Letter of Academic and Disciplinary Clearance.

If you need a dean's certification letter of good standing for Law school, please mail a stamped addressed envelope for each law school to: Wesleyan University - Dean of the College Office - ATT: Lorna Scott - North College - 237 High St - Middletown, CT 06459
