Using your W&M Username and password, current students and alumni may obtain free enrollment verifications online, twenty-four (24) hours per day through the National Student Clearinghouse:

  • Enrollment Verification
    • This is a basic enrollment verification for current and past semesters.
      • Will not appear on university letterhead
      • May not include pre-registration (future) information
    • If you need specific information as noted above, please do not obtain the free enrollment verification online. Instead, please submit the Enrollment Verification Request Form (docusign).

  • Pre-registration/Advanced Registration
    • Students needing verification of enrollment prior to the beginning of the semester may print a copy of their Advanced Registration Certificate to provide to a requestor. Advanced registration certificates include coursework for which a student is registered and are provided as a service to students before an official enrollment verification can be generated. Be advised, loan servicers and other organizations may not accept an Advanced Registration Certificate.
  • View all enrollment information filed for you with the Clearinghouse
  • View the student loan deferment notifications that the Clearinghouse has provided to your loan holders (lenders and guarantors)
  • View the proof(s) of enrollment that the Clearinghouse has provided to your health insurers and other providers of student services or products
