Verification of enrollment is generally needed by insurance companies, credit card companies, scholarship agencies, rental management companies, Canadian student loan offices, and for loan deferment (see below). The Records & Registration Office completes these forms following Student Data Privacy Act guidelines.
When enrollment verification is needed by a student, the form needs to be completed, with the appropriate information, and submitted to the Records & Registration Office. It will be processed within one week.
Enrollment Verification for Loan Deferments
Loan deferment requests should be submitted to the Records & Registration Office. BSU processes deferments through the National Student Clearinghouse by providing them with student enrollment information throughout the semester. We notify the Clearinghouse once a month, beginning 10 class days after the start of the term. The Clearinghouse notifies a student’s lender(s) of their enrollment status. This process can take two (2) to four (4) weeks.
The National Student Clearinghouse website has a link for students with questions regarding the deferment process, as well as a Loan Locator, which lets students know who their lender(s) are.
Below is a list of what information the Records & Registration Office can provide with or without a student’s consent.
