Student Letter Requests

A statement letter is an official document prepared by Student Services in the Faculty of Arts and Science, including degree verification.  Proof of enrolment, formerly processed through Student Services, is now accessible by students through SOLUS.

Statement Letters

Statement letters may be ordered through Student Services in person or by paying on-line and requesting the letter. Statement letters are considered confidential documents and therefore cannot be ordered or released to anyone but the student unless authorized by the student to do so. Once we receive the request the processing time is 5 business days.

Standard statement letters available upon request:

  • Certification of degree requirements ($12.00 plus $5.00 per additional signed original copy)
  • Dean's Certification Form and/or Letter (Comparative ranking standard for BAH; BSCH for professional schools) ($12.00 plus $5.00 per additional signed original copy)
  • Qualifications Evaluation Council of Ontario (Teacher qualification services) ($12.00 plus $5.00 per additional copy).  The original letter is normally mailed directly to QECO.
Specialized statement letters

There are times when a normal statement letter is insufficient to address a current student or graduate’s needs.  These types of letters are complex and require significant time and research to complete.  Once we receive a request for a specialized letter we require a processing time of 20 business days.  

Fee will be $50.
