Records
Certification of Enrollment/Degree

Current and past students can request a letter verifying their enrollment to be used for a variety of purposes, including visa applications, insurance verifications, and loan deferment. The letter certifies the semesters in which a student is or has been enrolled; the dates of those semesters; and the student’s enrollment status (full-time, half-time or less than half-time). Only past and present semesters can be certified. Contact Carlett Thomas directly at carlett.thomas@liu.edu. In the body of the email, please include the mailing address or fax number where the letter should be sent.

Graduates can request a letter verifying their status as a degree holder. The letter certifies that the student has completed the course work necessary to be granted their Bachelor of Arts degree and the degree date. Contact Carlett Thomas directly at carlett.thomas@liu.edu. In the body of the email, please include the mailing address or fax number where the letter should be sent.
