When requesting a verification by mail, please be sure to provide the following information:

  • Full name and any other name used while at St. John’s University
  • "X number" - If you don't know this number, give us the last four digits of your Social Security number.
  • Dates of attendance
  • Division of the University you attended
  • Degrees you received
  • Address and a phone number at which you can be reached
  • Best times to call you
  • The name and address of the person to whom you want us to send the verification
  • Please be sure to sign your request.

Please note we only verify your dates of attendance, degrees and honors received, and your major. If you need verification of the courses you took, the grades you received, or your GPA, you must request a transcript.

Current students can view their entire academic record and student advisement report from UIS. You can also print your record from UIS, but it will not show your name or any other information that will identify you.

Social Security Number

A Public Notice about Social Security Numbers
New York State Education Law prohibits the use of the Social Security number for identification purposes. Additionally, the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) prohibits the release of the Social Security number without a student's prior written consent. Neither the State of New York nor the Federal government requires the release of Social Security numbers except in a few carefully defined situations, chiefly related to verification of entitlement to financial aid.

Because of the above and because the Social Security number is not a part of a student's educational history, the Office of the Registrar at St. John's University does not confirm or in any other way make reference to or reveal a student's Social Security number.

When we confirm or verify a student's enrollment or the award of a degree, we certify academic information that our records contain, information that originates with us and that we have authority over. If, for example, we confirm that St. John's University awarded a Bachelor of Arts degree to Jane Doe on May 15, 2002, we assert that our records indicate that a person with this name received the degree indicated on the noted date. We do not, nor should we, authenticate anyone's identity.
