Alumni and Former Students

The University of California, San Francisco has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to act as our agent for all verifications of earned degrees and student enrollment. Employers or authorized 3rd-parties should visit the Clearinghouse online at or contact the Clearinghouse by phone at 703-742-4200. Graduates tasked with providing a degree verification should order an official transcript.

UCSF is a graduate-level health-sciences campus. We offer professional degree programs in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, and nursing, as well as graduate academic programs.

Some commonly requested verifications that cannot be fulfilled by this office are:

Postdoctoral, Internship & Residency Programs

School of Nursing


Please contact The National Student Clearinghouse to verify degrees and certificates. If, after seeking a verification from the National Student Clearinghouse (see above), additional elements of a graduate's record require verification, please email [email protected] for guidance.  


Post Masters graduates prior to Fall 2019: Please email the School of Nursing, at [email protected].

Individuals requiring:
     An out of state (not CA) licensure form completed;
     CGFNS/ NNAS certification requests;
     Confirmation of a specialty (for MS graduates prior to the fall 2013 term);

Please email [email protected] for guidance. For most situations, you will be asked to order a transcript and submit any required forms along with your Transcript Request Form. The Office of the Registrar will forward the transcript and any accompanying forms to the School of Nursing.
