Enrollment Certifications may be ordered through MyUWF, by searching for "Enrollment Certification". The official provider of enrollment certifications for the University of West Florida is the National Student Clearinghouse. Certifications can be used for insurance companies, student loan deferments, scholarships, good student discounts, prospective employment, and all other services that require proof of being enrolled at UWF.
Enrollment certification provides proof of enrollment for a student's financial lender, insurance company or sponsor. Each certification that the National Student Clearinghouse supplies is an official University document. Requests through the National Student Clearinghouse are processed immediately and are available to print or mail.
There is no charge for National Student Clearinghouse certifications ordered by and sent to students via MyUWF. Parents or authorized third parties may request an enrollment certification and have a confirmation sent for a fee of $4.00 per certification.
For information on how to request an enrollment certification, please see Ordering UWF Enrollment Verifications.

Enrollment Certification to Lenders
For enrollment certification to lenders, UWF submits a report of students' enrollment status to the Clearinghouse bi-weekly during the semester which, in turn, supplies certification of enrollment to lending agencies. The University of West Florida does not supply this information directly to lending agencies. If a student has registered late or has had an exception processed to the term registration, this information may not be reported until the submission of the next file.
