A statement letter is an official document prepared by the Arts and Science Faculty Office, Student Services, used for various purposes, including degree verification, confirmation of enrolment and/or academic standing, ranking letters for professional schools and teacher qualification letters.
Statement letters may be ordered through Student Services by filling out the form and submitting it by fax or dropping it off in person (main floor, Dunning Hall). Payment must be received before the letter has been produced. Payment may be made online (using the "Pay Now" button below) or in person in our office.
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:
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.

Access to a student’s personal academic and financial status is privileged and confidential. Each student has the ability to authorize a third party (e.g., a parent or guardian) for access to his or her academic and financial information, but also has the right to maintain complete confidentiality in one or both areas. The default is for this information to remain confidential; a student must specifically designate an individual for access. If a student has granted you access to his or her academic data, we strongly encourage you to discuss with the student what your respective expectations are regarding the use of that access.
The student can access the Communication Release Form in the Personal Information section of their SOLUS account.
