Students may need verification of their enrollment status for purposes such as eligibility for insurance coverage or deferment of student loans. Shippensburg University has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) to provide these services to students:
- Print a certificate of enrollment that can be forwarded to a health insurer, housing provider, credit issuer, or other student service providers.
- View enrollment information that may have been provided to a student services provider.
- View the electronic notifications and deferment forms that have been sent to their lenders, servicers, and guarantors.
NSC may be contacted by logging into the myShip portal. After logging in, click on Student. Under My Student Resources, select My Enrollment Verification. This service can be used even when a letter or a form requires completion. Print the enrollment verification provided by NSC and attach it to the form the company has provided.
Enrollment will be verified for the official dates of each semester and will be available within two weeks of the beginning of the semester. Undergraduate students will be certified as full-time if they are registered for 12 or more credits. Those with fewer than 12 credits will be certified as at least half time or less than half time. Graduate students will be certified as full-time if they are registered for 9 or more credits. Those with fewer than 9 credits will be certified as at least half time or less than half time.
Official verification of enrollment may also be requested through the Registrar’s Office. There is no fee for this service but the office requires a one-week turn around time. It is more efficient and timely to use the NSC service. If you have a form that needs to be completed, you may print the verification the NSC provides and attached it to your form. The Registrar’s Office would follow that same process. If you still would like the verification from the Registrar’s Office, you may use the online form or pick one up at the Registrar’s Office, Old Main 111. You will need Adobe Acrobat to view, fill in, and print this form. You can download Acrobat free from Adobe's website.
No requests will be taken over the phone and no request will be processed without the student’s signature.
