Enrollment Verification

Enrollment verifications show the number of credit hours a student is enrolled for a current semester. Our verifications show all semesters a student has ever enrolled at KCC; the dates of the semester(s), and whether they are full time, half time, etc.

Students might need an enrollment verification for:

  • Students need to verify that they are in at least six credit hours to defer their student loans.
  • Students need to verify to their apartment complex that they are enrolled in college courses (usually includes financial aid for this one).
  • Current employers or prospective employers do an authorized inquiry about student’s enrollment.
  • Insurance companies also ask for this information.
