1324 Enrollment and Degree Verification

Return to: 1300 University Academic Regulations  

Enrollment verification is obtained via the web at no cost to students and takes approximately 7 business days to process. Official enrollment verifications can be requested after the second week of the term.

Enrollment Verification

To obtain proof of enrollment, students should access PAWS at paws.gsu.edu. At this site, students can do the following:

  • Print a Certificate of Enrollment that can be forwarded to a health insurer, housing provider, employer, credit issuer, or other student services provider;
  • View the electronic notification and deferment forms that have been sent to a lender; and
  • View a list of lenders and real-time student loan information detail, such as outstanding principal balance and next due date that some lenders provide.

Once a student drops a course, those hours cannot be used for verification of enrollment purposes. A student’s enrollment status may change if he/she drops or withdraws from a course or withdraws from the university. If a student is co-enrolled at another collegiate institution during the same semester he or she is enrolled at Georgia State University, only the enrolled hours at Georgia State can be used for enrollment verification purposes.

Degree Verification

To obtain proof that a degree has been awarded, students should go to http://registrar.gsu.edu/graduation/degree-conferral-and-diploma-information.

At this site students can provide proof of degree to such agencies as third-party verifiers, credit card companies, and credit approval agencies. This is a website of the National Student Clearinghouse. The Clearinghouse provides degree verification services to Georgia State students.

Additional information on enrollment and degree verification can be found on the Office of the Registrar web site at http://registrar.gsu.edu.
