Enrollment & Degree Verification

Enrollment & Degree Verification

Concordia University has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) to act as its agent for verification of student enrollment and degree status. Several times per semester, the University submits a report of students’ enrollment status to the NSC which, in turn, supplies verification of enrollment to lending agencies.

*NOTE: Deferment requests and enrollment verifications CANNOT be completed prior to the start of the term but can be held for completion until after the last day to drop a course. 


For Businesses and Professional Organizations

The National Student Clearinghouse provides instant electronic verification of student degrees and student enrollment to employers, employment agencies, credit card companies, background search firms, and various other businesses that offer products or services to an enrolled student. (Students cannot use this service.)


Contact the National Student Clearinghouse directly for your verification needs.

For Current Students, Graduates, and Alumni

The Registrar's Office can provide verification of your enrollment at Concordia University, as well as other information, such as GPA, graduation date, major(s), full-time status, etc. Verification requests must be made in writing, because we need your signature to release your records. If your lender has provided a form, please email it to us at registrar@csp.edu or fax it to us at 651-603-6144. Otherwise you may fill out and email or fax our Enrollment Verification form. Requests will be processed within 2-5 business days upon receipt of the completed and signed form.

Enrollment Status

Your full-time or half-time status is based upon the number of credits in which you are enrolled and your student level
(undergraduate vs. graduate). You are considered “registered” by scheduling classes for a specific term. You move from being “registered” to “enrolled” after the last day to drop a course without notation. Note: Courses taken as audit do not count towards a student’s enrollment status. Also, summer enrollment is considered optional and may not affect your deferment status. Check with your lender to confirm.


Full-time student status is defined as follows:
Undergraduate students – 12 or more credits per semester
Graduate students – 6 or more credits per semester

Half-time student status is defined as follows:
Undergraduate students – 6-11 credits per semester
Graduate students – 3-5 credits per semester
