Students applying to graduate schools, particularly law school and medical school, may be required to submit a Dean's Certification as part of their application. A Dean's Certification requires that the University indicate if any disciplinary action has been taken against the applicant while they were a student.
Applicants who need a Deans Certification should either hand deliver, mail, or fax the signed form to the Dean of Students Office. The Dean of Students Office will check university records, complete the form, and email it directly to the school. If the applicants wish to mail the form via Priority Mail they are welcome to provide an envelope. Otherwise, the completed certification will be mailed via regular US Mail.
Infrequently, no form is provided, in which case applicants will be given a form authorizing the Dean of Students Office to check university records and release requested information. The applicant's name and signature should be included on the form. To expedite the process, always include your student ID number on any forms or communication to the office.
Please allow at least five (5) working days for Deans Certification forms to be processed.
Verification of dates of attendance at BYU may be obtained from the Records Office (B-150 ASB). The Records Office also provides official class records to those who have already graduated.
