Certification of Enrollment

Certification of Enrollment is required for many purposes-–medical or legal associations, licensure, insurance companies, employers, loans, etc. The Office of the University Registrar is responsible for certifying student enrollment status. The Registrar maintains both past and current student records, but does not verify future enrollment. Pre-registration is considered future enrollment until the end of the drop/add period for that semester. A student is not considered a CWRU student unless he/she is officially registered.

A Certification of Enrollment does not include courses taken or grades attained while a student at CWRU; that information is only obtained through ordering a transcript. Your Enrollment Certification will include the following:

    1. Enrollment Status, semester basis (i.e., full-time, half-time, less-than-halftime)*
    2. Anticipated Graduation Date
    3. Term Dates
