Academic Certification

The University Registrar’s office provides verification of dates a student attended Penn and degrees awarded by the Schools of the University. There is no fee for this service except for express mail service if requested.

Your request may be submitted by mail, email, telephone, fax, or in person at the Office of the University Registrar (150 Franklin Building).

Please allow 3 business days for the processing of your request. Your Certification letter can be mailed to you, to a third party (full address to be provided at the time of the request), or may be picked up from the Registrar’s Office. If your request is to be mailed directly to another academic institution, please include a copy of the form requesting the Certification.

Requests directly from third parties including other academic institutions must be submitted by mail and must include an affidavit signed and dated by the student authorizing the release of the information.
