Requests for Information (Dean's Certifications and Disciplinary Checks)

The Office of the Dean of Students often receives requests for Dean's Certifications and student disciplinary information from third parties (i.e. a job application, an application to be admitted to the bar, a transfer application, etc).

Normally, student disciplinary information requested by a third party will only be released with the written permission of the student about whom the inquiry is being made.

The Student Records Policy outlines the specific conditions under which information can be released to a third party.

Please note our office only provides information on student conduct/disciplinary history; if you exclusively require academic verification (i.e. – dates of enrollment, grades, academic dishonesty, etc.), you will need to forward your documentation to the Office of Enrollment Services.

The Office of the Dean of Students accepts requests to release disciplinary information through the following means:

  • Online here
  • In person
  • By postal mail

The requesting party must provide a copy of the student's written authorization that the disciplinary records may be released. It is strongly encouraged that the dates of the student's attendance at Catholic University are included in the written release of information as this will aid in the processing of the request.

Requests for information are normally processed within 5 business days.
