Graduation Verification and Degree Verification

It should be clear that attending the commencement ceremony does not mean that you have officially graduated

The Academic Auditors will verify that you have met all your degree requirements when ALL  final grades appear on your transcript.   After your records have been evaluated, you will receive an e-mail from our office stating whether or not you have graduated and if not, which requirements remain unsatisfied.  

The Academic Auditors Office issues verification of graduation letters for graduates whose degrees are not yet conferred on their transcript. If you would like a letter verifying your graduation mailed to a graduate school, law school, or future employer, please e-mail the request to the Academic Auditors Office ( and a letter will be sent on your behalf.  The auditors can also fax these letters, but be aware that the University seal that makes the letter official will not appear on a faxed copy. 

Once your degree is conferred, it will appear on your transcript and only the Registrar's Office can provide a verification of graduation letter for you. If you need a letter that verifies your graduation after your degree is conferred, please contact the Transcripts & Certification Office at 734-763-9066. Please view the Registrar's Degree Verification FAQs.
