Enrollment Verification

What is Enrollment Verification?

Enrollment Verifications serve as proof of your status as a student. Insurance companies, loan agencies and other organizations may require a verification in order for you to be eligible for certain benefits. In some cases, verification may be necessary to prove that you did not attend College of DuPage.

Status is defined in the College of DuPage Catalog as:

  • Full-Time Status - 12 or more credit hours per term*
  • Part-Time Status - less than 12 credit hours per term
  • Three-Quarter Status - 9 to 11 credit hours per term
  • Half-Time Status - 6 to 8 credit hours per term
  • Less Than Half-Time Status - 1-5 credit hours per term

*Dropping below full-time status may affect such items as insurance eligibility, loan deferments and financial aid.

Summer semester only: Full-time status is 6 or more credit hours. Be advised that having just 6 credits might affect your financial aid.

Military students: The Veterans Administration determines statuses.

Types of Verifications

Enrollment Verification

Request your Enrollment Verification online through your myACCESS account at myaccess.cod.edu. Select Enrollment Verification from the Academic Profile menu under myACCESS for Students. There is no fee for this service. Verification requests are completed within 5 business days. During peak periods, such as the start of the semester, requests may take up to 10 business days.

Loan Deferment

Students needing to defer their loans should contact their lender for specifications on requesting a loan deferment.

Loan deferments forms can be accessed through your lender’s web site. Send your signed form to the College of DuPage Office of Student Records at verifications@cod.edu or by fax or mail (contact info below), which will then be forwarded to your lender. While you are in deferment, it is your responsibility to notify your lender of any changes. 

Good Student Discounts

Good student discount programs are generally offered through auto insurance companies for policy discounts. Insurance companies have different and specific regulations for granting good student discounts. Check with your auto insurance agent/company for eligibility requirements. Read all insurance forms carefully.

Good Student discount forms can be acquired through your insurance company. Send your form to the College of DuPage Office of Student Records at verifications@cod.edu or by fax or mail (contact info below). Please specify to whom and how we should deliver your document.

Secretary of State

Students requesting a restricted driving permit from the Secretary of State, must verify their class schedule at College of DuPage

To do so, submit the documentation provided by the Secretary of State’s office to the College of DuPage Office of Student Records.  You may email it to verifications@cod.edu or submit by fax or mail to the contact information below.. We will then send verification of your schedule directly to the Secretary of State’s office.

If your schedule changes, it is your responsibility to contact the Office of Student Records. Upon notification, the Office of Student Records will send an updated schedule directly to the Secretary of State.

Third Party Verification

Third party verification occurs when a request is made by someone other than the student, (i.e. a potential employer or insurance company), regarding enrollment status, degrees earned or terms of past attendance. The College of DuPage has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide verifications for all third party requestors. Go to www.degreeverify.org.
