Degree Verifications and Certificates of Enrollment

Credentials & Verifications

The Faculty of Arts and Sciences Registrar’s Office issues all official degree verifications through The National Student Clearinghouse. This convenient online service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

If you need help or have questions about the National Student Clearinghouse’s degree verification services, please contact them via email at service@studentclearinghouse.org or by phone at 703-742-4200.

Degree verifications are available for alumni who have received a degree. Degree verifications contain alumnus/alumna name, dates of enrollment and degree received. Degree verifications can be requested by the alumna/alumnus or outside organizations/individuals (HR offices, background check companies, etc.). There is an associated fee for this service. From the drop-down menu, be sure to select HARVARD COLLEGE for Bachelor degree verifications, or HARVARD GRADUATE SCHOOL OF ARTS AND SCIENCES for Master of Arts, Master of Science or PhD degree verifications. 

For general information about enrollment or degree verifications, please contact the Faculty of Arts and Sciences Information & Records Management team at registrar@fas.harvard.edu or at 617-495-1543. 

Note: Certificates of Enrollment for the Fall 2021 semester will be available in your my.Harvard account once you are officially enrolled in courses in late August. 

Certificates of Enrollment are available to active students in their my.Harvard account. Please log in to my.harvard.edu using your HarvardKey credentials. The certificate of enrollment is located in the Documents tab of your Student Home page. You must ensure that your browser allows pop-ups as an active pop-up blocker will prevent your document from opening. The Document Center menu in my.harvard is auto collapsed. The plus icon must be clicked in order to expand the menu and select forms to generate. Please see the below image for reference.
