Requests for verifications are received by the Registrar's Office
from external agencies such as credit card companies, prospective
employers, lending institutions, state departments of higher education,
government agencies, students, and others. In order to expedite
processing the large number of verification requests received, a
standard computer generated form letter has been adopted to provide
information generally requested by external agencies instead of
completing every specialized form received individually. The Office of
the Registrar will not complete agency supplied verification froms, but
instead attach our form letter to the original agency supplied form and
mail it out.

Students who have exercised their rights under the Family
Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) to withhold any and all
information from being released will also be required to either mail or
fax a signed release to the Registrar's Office before the request for
even directory information may be processed.
Please allow approximately five (5) working days for an email or
written request to be processed from the time received and include the

increase by several business days due to the high volume of requests
received. However, if there is no response within that period
of time, contact the Verifications Department of the Registrar's Office
by calling (848)445-3220 or write to the above address.
