What you need to know

A subject registration letter provides proof of your current enrollment status and subject registration. Subjects do not appear on transcripts until the term comes to an end and final grades are recorded. If an insurance company, scholarship organization, or other entity requires written evidence of your in-progress subjects, a subject registration letter will satisfy this need.

Some key points to remember:

  • You can order a subject registration letter in person, by email, or by mail. Choose to pick it up at the Registrar's Office in Room 5-117 or have it sent by U.S. mail.
  • It will include your name, start and end dates of the current term, your level (U or G), and registration load status, as well as the numbers, titles, and units for each of your current subjects.
