Requesting a Valparaiso University Verification Letter

Verification Policy

All verification requests are made through DataVU under the Enrollment Verification menu. Please note that all verification requests must be submitted with an original signature on the Verification Request form found on DataVU under the Enrollment Verification Menu. FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974) prohibits the release of your information without a written signature.

For students and alumni only requiring enrollment information (such as dates of attendance), you may use the NSC Login link under the Enrollment Verification menu. The NSC Login will direct you to the National Student Clearinghouse’s webpage where you may order a free enrollment verification letter that includes either current enrollment or all enrollment. As long as there are no pending outstanding obligations on your account, a PDF letter will be created immediately for you to save and print.

For students and alumni requiring additional information other than dates of attendance, you may use the Additional Enrollment Verification History link under the Enrollment Verification menu.

This link will direct you to two forms:

  • Domestic Student Verification
  • International Student Verification

Please select the appropriate form as each group has been identified with differing needs.

Verification letters for a third party, if processed by Registrar’s office staff, will require either a direct email address or mailing address and will be sent directly to that address. If submitting an insurance form, loan deferment form, guest student application, verification of degree, or other document, these forms must be accompanied by Valparaiso University’s Verification Request form.

We are unable to release verification letters to students or alumni with any outstanding obligations to the University. Please resolve any outstanding obligations with the applicable offices before placing a verification request order. Student restriction details are available to current students through DataVU under the Students menu.
