From the Registrar

August 10, 2022

The Registrar's Office shared information on how to obtain enrollment verification certificates, transfer credits, and more.

On behalf of everyone in the St. John Fisher University Registrar’s Office, welcome to Fisher! We hope you will find your transition to college to be a smooth one. There is a lot to know, and many details to cover, and we are here to help you every step of the way.

Families: Is your health insurance provider looking for verification that your student is a full-time student? Are they applying for a student credit card? Does their current employer want proof of their enrollment? Do they have a scholarship that may require verification that they are a matriculated student?

If you answered “yes” to those questions, then read on! The Registrar’s Office has made it easy for students to obtain enrollment verification certificates through the National Student Clearinghouse’s web-based Student Self-Service program. Students can print their certificates, at no charge, through the intranet, which they can now access. Currently, students would choose the Advanced Enrollment Certificate. Once classes start, students would choose Enrollment Certificate. Because of this user-friendly and secure system, the University no longer provides these verifications. Students will need their Fisher ID number and pin number. Instructions on printing an enrollment verification can be found on the Registrar’s website.

Inter-Institutional Opportunity

The University offers full-time students the opportunity to take a class covered under their tuition at participating institutions during the fall and/or spring semesters. If interested, students can contact the Registrar’s Office for the registration form and additional information.

Transfer Credit from Other Institutions (Taken during High School or Summer Courses)

In August, the Registrar’s Office begins the review of all incoming first-year academic folders. At that time, we will post any transfer credits earned by the student. Once posted, an email is sent to the student indicating that a change has been made to their record. The folders are done alphabetically and if all academic transcripts have been submitted to the University, your students’ folder review will be completed by November.
