2. Students not currently enrolled may verify their enrollment online using the National Student Clearinghouse. This service is available 24/7 and you are able to print a certificate out immediately.
The following information is verified on enrollment verifications:
|Fall / Spring / Summer Semester Enrollment Verification Guidelines|
|Student Type||Full Time||Three Quarter Time||Half Time||Below Half Time|
|Undergraduate||12 or more hours||9 - 11 hours||6 - 8 hours||5 or fewer hours|
|Graduate||9 or more hours||7 - 8 hours||5 - 6 hours||4 or fewer hours|
Note that classes taken for audit are included in total enrolled hours.
Independent learning courses are not considered for enrollment verification purposes.
According to policy in UPPS 01.04.00 (Attachment 1, “Glossary of Terms”) a person becomes a student for FERPA purposes when:
Any individual who is registered for the current or a future semester by official registration methods and appears on a class roster is considered “in attendance” and a student.
Therefore, a person would have FERPA rights when (1) registered for a current or future semester; and (2) named on a class roster. A person becomes a student for FERPA purposes when they are “in attendance." FERPA states that we can release “enrollment status (actual hours enrolled, undergraduate, graduate, etc.)” but it does not state that this must be an Official Enrollment Verification. Texas State will provide our students an Official Enrollment Verification Letter after their name appears on the 1st day roster and they have attended their first class.
