Verifications is located in:

The Registrar's Service Center

Walk-in hours: 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday

Enrollment verifications are requested for a variety of reasons including loan deferment, health insurance, good student discount for auto insurance, international student IDs and employment. Most lenders require loan repayment to begin six months after a student's last date of enrollment. Verifications can be obtained in the following ways:

Students can now print their own verifications for:

  • Enrollment (health insurance)
  • Semester GPA (good student discount for auto insurance)
  • Test scores
  • Degree(s) earned

These functions can all be performed through a student's ISIS account.

Commercial Verifiers should contact the National Student Clearinghouse or phone 703-742-7791.

Verification letters can also be obtained in person at the Registrar's Service Center, 17 Calvin Hall.

Most loan deferment is now done through the National Student Clearinghouse. The University of Iowa updates current semester enrollment with the Clearinghouse monthly. If you have a lender who does not participate in the National Student Clearinghouse, contact us.

The information supplied to the Clearinghouse includes your anticipated date of graduation. It is very important to be certain your anticipated date of graduation reflects your current plans. If the date is not accurate it could result in lenders expecting you to start repayment of loans. For further information, you can contact Verifications at 319-335-0229.

When do you expect to graduate?

Your anticipated graduation date is very important. If you have any type of Financial Aid, the University of Iowa routinely sends reports to guarantors of student loans informing the guarantor of the student's current enrollment status and the anticipated graduation date. A graduation date that is earlier than your actual graduation date may put you in a situation where you are expected to start repaying loans.

You need to input your anticipated graduation date when you first enroll at the University of Iowa in a degree or certificate seeking program.  Since individual circumstances and plans vary, it is important for you to be certain your anticipated graduation date reflects your current plans. The University and any lending agency simply want to know your best estimate of when you plan to graduate.

There are several ways to check and update your anticipated graduation date: If you are a currently enrolled University of Iowa student, you can view and update your anticipated graduation date on ISIS. To do this, log on to ISIS using your ID and password. "Anticipated Graduation Date" can be found under "Student Records" on the ISIS Quick Menu. If you need help with your password or logging on to ISIS, contact the ITS Help Desk at 319-384-HELP(4357) You can call the Office of the Registrar (335-0229) to check this information and request that any necessary changes be made. You can also stop at the Registrar's Service Center, 17 Calvin Hall and verify this information and request that it be changed if necessary.

All changes to student records are made only by authorized University personnel or at the request of the student.
