Note: Enrollment certification for future terms

Bowling Green State University considers registration for future semesters unofficial until the opening of classes. Therefore, we do not report enrollments to the National Student Clearinghouse until the first day of the semester's  classes. If you need a verification of class registration prior to the opening of classes for a given term, you must request a letter of registration verification (see below). Self-service enrollment verification certificates will be available via MyBGSU and the National Student Clearinghouse by approximately the third or fourth day of each fall/spring term. Letters of enrollment verification may be requested after the first day of classes each semester.  

Obtain a self-service enrollment verification certificate

If you need to verify your enrollment at BGSU, self-service enrollment certificates may be obtained by logging in to MyBGSU, by clicking on the "Enrollment Verification" link in the left navigation area, and by proceeding to the web site of the National Student Clearinghouse. Your BGSU enrollment information has been provided to the Clearinghouse, and you can view or print that information at any time, via secure log-in. Enrollment certificates printed from the Clearinghouse web site can be used as official verification of enrollment for insurance companies, scholarships, and other agencies.
