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.

General Information

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.  

Enrollment for a semester is officially reported to the National Student Clearinghouse at the start of a semester and then reported once a month throughout the semester to reflect changes in enrollment status (i.e. withdrawals, adds, etc...).  If the semester has not started yet and you need to verify your pending enrollment a Certification letter can be requested.   Requests for letters are NOT available for same-day pick-up and can take a minimum of 2-3 business days to generate during normal working times.  During Peak Times, i.e. end of a semester, it can take 5-7 business days or more to generate. 

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 $6.00** per certification.

**As of January 1, 2020, this fee will be increased to $10.00

How do I order/access my Enrollment Certification?

Enrollment certifications may be obtained through MyUWF. Once you log- in, search for "enrollment certification."  If your UWF account is not active, please see Activating your MyUWF/ArgoNet Account for instructions.

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.
