Enrollment and Degree Verification

Enrollment Verification

Central records produces letters regarding your student status on College stationery, stamped by the director of central records. Requests are generally processed within three business days. You may bring this enrollment certification form to the central records office, or fax it to 413.559.5736. Letters regarding good academic standing are prepared by the Center for Academic Support and Advising (CASA). Contact them at 413.559.5498.
