Verification of Attendance
To order a Letter of Verification:
Students and alumni can request letters of verification by submitting the Request for Verification of Attendance form, or by sending a letter. The form or letter MUST contain the following. If the items are missing, the requester will be contacted in order to obtain them:
- Name used while at the Law School
- Current address
- Email address
- Date of birth
- Student ID number (current students only)
- Dates of attendance
- Degree received and year (alumni only)
We cannot accept requests over the phone or by email, unless a scanned copy of the form or letter is attached.
Since letters and forms need to be personally signed by the Registrar or Dean of Students, we cannot complete on-the-spot requests.
Forms Completed by our Office:
Generally, we can complete any form requiring the signature of a designated Law School official (the Registrar or Dean of Students). Fill out the Request for Verification of Attendance form, check “Complete the FORM ATTACHED,” and submit with your form. Forms are completed in the Registrar’s Office even if it requires the signature of the Dean of Students.
Forms that include a Release of Information (i.e. New York Bar Law School Certification form) do not also require a Request for Verification of Attendance form since your permission is already granted.
NOTE: We cannot complete Federal Loan Deferral forms. These forms need to be completed by the main campus Registrar’s Office, located at 120 Sproul.
Where to send the request:
1) Fax your signed request to (510) 642-2277
2) Email a scanned copy of your signed request (preferably in PDF format) to firstname.lastname@example.org
3) Mail your signed request to:
Office of the Registrar
