How to Order a Verification

Official Verifications


UC Santa Barbara's Official Verifications are printed on security paper with the Registrar’s signature and only display select enrollment and degree information for the student. Specific courses taken and grades are not listed on a verification. To order an official verification please select one of the following options:

  • Current students (registered and paid for the current quarter):
    Ordering instructions and pricing for official verifications can be found by logging into GOLD.

  • Non-current students, alumni, and current students:
    Ordering instructions and pricing for official verifications can be found by using The National Student Clearinghouse.

  • Unofficial Verifications


    Unofficial Verifications are available free of charge to all current and former students through GOLD.

    Please note - students who attended UCSB prior to 1987 may need to contact the Office of the Registrar before this option is available to them. Please send an email to Transcripts for more information.

    Free Verifications for Public Access


    The Public Verification service is designed for 3rd party entities to verify a student's directory information.
