Verification of a Pending Degree

About the Verification of a Pending Degree

Students who have petitioned for a degree for the term may request a letter stating that they have a "pending" degree and that the degree will be awarded when all requirements for the degree are completed. This option is not available for students who have already been awarded a degree. Students who wish to have verification of an awarded degree should request a Degree Verification instead.
