I received a degree. Why wasn’t I able to verify it?

Most requests are confirmed instantly. When a degree isn’t verified, it’s usually due to one of the following reasons:

  • Your degree is new. It can take several weeks after they are awarded before new degrees are posted and available for verification. If you submit a request to verify your degree BEFORE it is posted, you will not get an immediate confirmation. Instead, DegreeVerify will automatically send a request on your behalf to your school to verify your degree. As soon as the school adds your degree to our system, you will receive your verification via email.
  • You submitted incorrect information and/or selected the wrong school. Check your information and submit your request again with the corrected information.
  • Your record has a hold or privacy block on it. Contact your school to find out how to have the hold or privacy block removed so your degree can be released for verification.
