Proof of Enrollment and Enrollment Verification

An Enrollment Verification serves as documentation that a student is enrolled at the University for a particular semester(s) as a full-time, three quarter-time, half-time, or less than half-time student. This document is frequently requested to prove enrollment to health insurance and housing agencies, employers, scholarships, or others.

Spring Semester: Available beginning at the end of November

Hints

  • Have your student print one for free from MyUAlbany (there is a section at the top of the Enrollment Verification for your student to add the insurance policy number).
