What you need to know

An enrollment certification is an official document proving your current enrollment at MIT. You can obtain one — sometimes required for scholarships, insurance, internships, or employment — from the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) or MIT’s Student Services Center. To receive your certification instantly, use NSC. If the requestor requires a paper copy, you must obtain your certification from the Student Services Center.

An enrollment certification generated at MIT includes:

  • Your legal name (from your student record)
  • Start and end dates of the current term
  • Your level (undergraduate or graduate)
  • Your registration load status for the current term
  • The degree you are pursuing
  • Your expected graduation date

By request, it can also include your cumulative grade point average (GPA), undergraduate quartile class rank, and statement of good academic standing.

An NSC certification includes only the following:

  • Your legal name, as found in your student record
  • Start and end dates of the current term
  • Your registration load status for the current term
  • Past enrollment, loan, and loan deferment information
