Graduate Support Office
NOTE: WE ARE ONLY ABLE TO COMPLETE VERIFICATION REQUESTS FOR DEGREES EARNED FROM THE COLLEGE OF EDUCATION. IF YOUR DEGREE WAS Earned FROM ANOTHER COLLEGE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH FLORIDA YOU WILL NEED TO CONTACT THAT COLLEGE DIRECTLY WITH YOUR VERIFICATION REQUEST.
The Graduate Support Office (GSO) can assist College of Education alumni who need degree verification forms completed for job purposes. In most cases, the hiring institution provides a form where the Graduate Support Office can provide pertinent degree information.
The USF Registrar's Office can stamp the university seal, if required, by the hiring institution. In some cases, the hiring institution requires detailed information such as internship hours, specific core classes taken, and endorsements. Some institutions require an additional letter from the department. In rare cases, a unique letter can be provided upon request if the hiring institution does not provide a standardized form.
The degree verification process usually takes 5 to 10 business days, depending on the amount of detailed information required and if other offices need to provide the Graduate Support Office with additional detailed information.
All verification requests forms and requests can be sent to Krystal Baehr at the Graduate Support Office by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via fax at 813-974-9989. For faster service, please be sure to use "Degree Verification Request" in the subject line.
In the body of the email, please include the following
- Your full complete name (include the last name used while enrolled if you've had a name change)
- Your USFID (U Number)
- Date of birth
- The address where the completed form should be mailed
If you need an additional letter from the department, make sure to indicate this with the original request.
