Request Dean's Certification

When academic institutions or employers request confirmation of the disciplinary record of students or alumni, the Dean of Student’s Office will prepare a Dean’s Certification letter. For federal reporting purposes, the Dean of Students Office retains disciplinary records in accordance with the Student Rights and Responsibilities Manual. The student’s discipline record, including a summary of the outcome and sanction, will be the source for the summary provided to the requesting institution. The Dean does not need to meet with the person requesting the form.

To request a Dean’s Certification letter, students and alumni must download and complete the request form. The completed request form, and all accompanying documents, should then be submitted in one of the following ways:

  • Email to Tery Ortega at t.ortega@miami.edu
  • In person to Dean of Students Office, located in UC2250

Letters are written in the order received from applicants. Please allow 5-7 business days for your request to be processed.
