For Students - Graduation Verification

Occasionally a student may need communication from Empire State College verifying that they are an Empire State College graduate. We encourage students to request an official transcript as the official transcript is a verification of the degree awarded. If it is not possible to send an official transcript, the college can provide a letter verifying that the student is a graduate.

If you request a verification of your graduation, it is imperative to include all of the following information:

  • your name
  • your student ID number or social security number
  • the name and complete address of the organization to which the graduation verification is to be sent (Note: letters cannot be emailed.)
  • a daytime telephone number and your address where you may be contacted in case there are any questions
  • your handwritten signature.

The graduation verification letter is not a substitute for an official transcript.
