Enrollment Verification

How to get verification of your IUPUI enrollment

At some point, you may need to prove your current or past enrollment status as an IUPUI student. You may need this verification for several reasons, including:

  • Getting or keeping insurance (for example, to get a good student discount on car insurance or to stay on your parents’ health insurance)
  • Deferring your loans until after you graduate
  • Informing employers or screening firms of your education
  • Responding to calls for jury duty

You can use the Enrollment Verification Certificate in One.IU to print your own enrollment certification and check loan deferment information that has been sent automatically to your lenders. IUPUI has partnered with the National Student Clearinghouse to make this information available.

You won’t be able to get your enrollment verification if there are any holds on your account. If you have questions about enrollment verifications, contact the Office of the Registrar.

Note that an enrollment verification isn’t official until the beginning of the second week of the term, after the 100% refund period ends. Good student verifications will be available approximately three weeks after a term ends.

What does an enrollment verification include?

When a third party requires an enrollment verification, they usually just need confirmation of your current enrollment, your enrollment status, and your expected graduation date. Good student discounts through your insurance company are based on your grades and GPA. Other discounts may be based on conferral of your degree. You’ll have the option to request any available information you want to provide to the third party.

About your enrollment status

Verification of your enrollment status is based on the number of hours you’re enrolled in a term. Full-time enrollment is often required for you to be covered by insurance. At least half-time enrollment is often needed to to defer loan payments. Make sure you consider all possible consequences before you drop below full-time status.

Undergraduate enrollment

  • Full time: 12 hours
  • Half time: 6 hours

If you’re working on an undergraduate degree that requires at least 120 credit hours, you should plan to complete 15–16 hours per semester in order to graduate in eight semesters.

Graduate enrollment

  • Full time: 8 hours
  • Half time: 4 hours

For some graduate students, typically those doing dissertation work, fewer hours may be required to maintain full-time status.

Enrollment for veterans

To receive veteran benefits services, veterans must be enrolled in the following number of credit hours.

Undergraduate veterans

  • Fall/spring: 12 hours
  • First/second summer: 4 hours each

Graduate veterans

  • Fall/spring: 8 hours
  • First summer: 4 hours
  • Second summer: 3 hours

Undergraduate students receiving US Department of Veterans Affairs educational benefits, except for the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill, have additional certification levels of one-quarter time, less than half time, half time, or three-quarter time, which are determined by actual days of instruction.
