Disciplinary Checks / Dean’s Certification

Dean’s Certification

A dean’s certification is required by some law schools, State Boards of Law Examiners, medical/veterinary schools and several state and federal agencies. The certification is used for verification of academic dishonesty/disciplinary actions during a student’s tenure with the University. It may also be used to assess the academic, co-curricular and/or financial status of the student at the University. Depending on the length of the form and the number of departments needing to complete the form, the certification process can take several weeks.

In order for the law, medical or veterinary school and federal/state agencies to receive your application by the deadline for admissions or position, we highly recommend a minimum of one month notice for any dean’s certification.

Guidelines and Timeline

Each certification should be accompanied by a stamped, pre-addressed envelope to each

individual entity.

  • Separate forms MUST be used for each area of interest:
    • Discipline/Academic Integrity – Office of Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution
    • Grades/GPA/Courses – Registrar
    • Financial Records – Student Business Services
  • After processing, the forms are mailed directly to the entity – NOT the student

You should submit your forms to the appropriate department at least one month before the schools, agency’s, Board’s deadline.
