Enrollment Verification

Degree and Enrollment Certifications

Canisius University has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide degree and enrollment verifications.  If you are an employer, employment agency or background screening firm, please contact the National Student Clearinghouse.

Canisius University Student Enrollment Certifications

Canisius University students can obtain their own enrollment certifications through the National Student Clearinghouse.  These enrollment certifications can be used for health insurers or general proof of your Canisius University enrollment. Students that do not have a social security number in the college database will not be reported to the Clearinghouse and cannot use this service. This service is available to our students 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
