Enrollment Verification

Enrollment Verification

An Enrollment Verification Form serves as documentation that a student is currently enrolled at the University for a particular semester(s) as a full-time, half-time, or less than half-time student.  This form is frequently requested to prove enrollment to health insurance and housing agencies, employers, or others.  
Registered students may obtain Enrollment Verifications (proof of enrollment) from the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) via MYUAlbany according to the following schedule:

Spring Semester: Third week in November
Summer Semester: First week in May
Fall Semester: Third week in April

NOTE:  Graduate Assistants, Research Assistants and students without a social security number may not use this service. Please visit the Registrar's Office, Campus Center B-52.

Steps to generate and print an NSC Enrollment Verification Certificate:

PARENTS:  Parents may generate and print an Enrollment Verification Certificate for your student via the web at http://www.studentclearinghouse.com/.  Select the “Verify Current Enrollment”  option in the middle of the page after logging on to the site.  A fee of $2.50 is charged by the Clearinghouse for this service. 
• 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).
• If your insurance company has its own form, complete the portion of their form with your policy information and then attach the Enrollment Verification Certificate from the Clearinghouse. 

LOAN DEFERMENT: Enrollment Certificates should not be used for deferment purposes. Most lenders and loan servicing organizations that participate in the NSC also participate in our paperless deferment process. With this process, no paper forms need to be completed by either students or schools. Students must simply call their servicer to request deferment. The servicer then posts a deferment to the student's account after the student's verbal order is matched against the NSC electronic data verifying in-school status.
