Enrollment Verification

Plymouth State University has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) to provide all degree and enrollment verification. National Student Clearinghouse may be contacted at:

National Student Clearinghouse

13454 Sunrise Valley Dr, Ste 300
Herndon VA, 20171
Fax: (703)-742-4239


Enrollment Certificates may be obtained (at the earliest) two weeks prior to the start of the fall and spring semesters from the NSC website. For verifications prior to that, students should submit a copy of their online schedule to the requester. Students may access the service by logging into myPlymouth and choosing the Enrollment Verification link in Self Service.

For enrollment verification or certification purposes, the following categories are used for undergraduate students during the fall and spring semesters:

12.0 credits or more Full-time
6.0 to 11.5 credits At least half-time
Fewer than 6.0 credits Less than half-time

For enrollment verification or certification purposes, the following categories are used for graduate students during the fall, spring, and summer semesters:

6.0 credits or more Full-time
3.0 credits At least half-time
Fewer than 3.0 credits Less than half-time
Categories are based on the number of credits in which students are enrolled on the date the verification or certification letter is prepared.

Graduate Students

Continuing Education student is one who is not matriculated (not admitted into a degree program).  A continuing education student may enroll in PSU credit-bearing courses as long as you have met the eligibility requirements.


The eligibility requirements for enrolling in credit-bearing courses include:

  • a high school diploma or equivalent
  • demonstrated successful academic performance
  • successful completion of all course prerequisites

*The University reserves the right to restrict registration to those who can demonstrate the completion of the above requirements and to withdraw a student who upon request fails to provide proper documentation or who demonstrates unacceptable performance once enrolled.

Student Course Load

Continuing education and part-time students may register for a maximum of 11.5 credit hours during the fall or spring terms, 6.0 credit hours during the Early Spring term and 9.0 credit hours during the summer term.

If you want to take a course from the regular schedule for your own interest or development but not for credit, you may register to audit a course. You will not be required to complete the normal class requirements and you will not receive a grade. An auditor pays one-half of the course tuition plus the mandatory fees per credit. Exceptions are skill, studio and professional courses, for which full tuition is charged.

Continuing Education Loans

Continuing Education Loan (if needed) may be borrowed if a student is not admitted into a degree program and therefore not eligible for Federal loan programs. These loans should only be applied for as a last resort. For non-degree Continuing Education undergraduate students (early spring or summer terms), payment for classes is due at the time of registration. We strongly recommend that you apply early for your loan to ensure that it’s in place by the billing or registration due dates.

For general counseling and information, continuing education students (non-degree) should contact the Office of the Registrar, or call (603) 535-2345.
