A verification provides information regarding a student's enrollment status, dates of attendance, degrees sought or awarded, and program of study. This information is often needed by lenders, insurance carriers, sponsors, etc., to determine eligibility for loan deferment and continuation of in-school benefits. 

 

Can I come to the Office to have a form completed or request a custom letter?

Request for a custom letter, form or form completion must be submitted in TUportal. The completed document will be sent to the recipient directly by the Office of the University Registrar. For privacy and security reasons, we do not accept requests for form completion or letters via in-person, email or fax.

     

    What should I know before I submit my request?

    The Office of the University Registrar will process your request in the order received. Once the form or the letter is completed, we will send it directly to the recipient. The name appearing on the document will be your legal name we have in our record. Please note the following:

    • Because Temple University participates in automatic enrollment reporting, the Office may not complete loan deferment forms from lenders.
    • Completing the form may take longer than 14 business days depending on the time of the year, information needed, or pending volume.
    • Combine multiple pages into a single PDF document.
    • If the PDF file is password protected, please be sure to provide the correct password. Inaccessible forms will be discarded.
    • The quality of the scanned document should be legible. Documents appearing skewed or blurry will be discarded.
    • Your portion of the form must be completed. Incomplete forms will be discarded.
    • If you are requesting a signed letter, provide the recipient's name, address, phone number, and email address.

     

    Loan Deferment

    Because Temple University participates in automatic enrollment reporting, the Office may not complete loan deferment forms from lenders. However, you may request an Enrollment-Degree Verification- eDelivery letter sent directly to the agency. Optionally, you may refer your loan servicing agency to contact the National Student Clearinghouse for an enrollment verification.
