  • Verifying of academic standing
  • Verifying graduation requirements for students applying to residency programs
  • Processing documentation related to medical license application or changes

Our office handles a high volume of phone calls, walk ins and emails. Although of course we understand that sometimes emergencies happen, we respectfully request that you give us 3-5 days to process any verification request.


The Student Records office is located in 303 Light Hall. Our office hours are from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM Monday through Friday. We know that it’s quite often not convenient to drop by our office. Visit the Forms page to find the form that will enable you to do what you need to do.

Especially helpful are the Quick Request Form and the Add/Drop Form.
