Registrar: Degree Verification

We are excited to announce that Pacific University has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide electronic verification of Pacific University degrees.   For degrees from 2002 or later, this information is available instantaneously, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.  For degrees prior to 2002, there may be a turn-around of up to three business days.  NSC charges a small fee for this service; see their website at for more information and to verify a degree.

Graduates are reported to the National Student Clearinghouse within 30 days of the date the degree was conferral.

The Registrar’s Office at Pacific University does not maintain records that would enable it to certify information about student (or alumnus/a’s) character or qualifications to practice a designated specialty.  Requests for letters of recommendation or other such information should be directed to specific faculty or personal references of the student’s (or alumnus/a’s) choice.
