Dean’s Certifications & Records Requests
The Dean's Certification process is utilized to provide verification of information located in a student’s personal FAU conduct records. A Dean’s Certification may be required by graduate and professional schools; state bar associations; government or independent agencies when applying for admission or employment. This process allows for the sharing of student conduct records with outside parties, with the permission of the student associated with those records. After approval to release information has been received, the Dean of Students’ office will provide confirmation of any violation of University policies, and subsequent University actions or proceedings that resulted from these violations.
Most institutions or agencies will provide you with a form for you to submit to the Dean of Students' Office for completion. You will need to complete, sign and upload that form to our system. Our office will then complete the form or send a letter of clearance directly to the institution or agency from which the request originated. If a form is not provided, the Dean of Students’ Office is able provide a general letter to verify good standing, or inform the recipient of the general facts of any incidents, violations, and sanctions, as applicable. Letters of reference will only be sent directly to a school or agency.
The certification process may take up to 15 days to complete. The requests are processed in the order in which they are received.
If you have questions regarding your records request, please contact Ryan Iocco in the Office of Student Conduct & Conflict Resolution at 561-297-3542 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
