Alumni Relations

Proud of our past. Creating our future.

Since 1884, tens of thousands of alumni have graduated from Woodbury University, becoming trailblazers throughout Los Angeles, California and the nation. Woodbury strives to foster a lifelong community of alumni connected to each other and to the institution with the goal of generating private financial support and engagement with the university.

We work in partnership with alumni to advance a positive image of the university, promote university and alumni accomplishments and provide opportunities for alumni networking. You are members of an elite group of innovators that has created history, and for that you should be very proud!

  • Employers or background screening firms who need to request this information please visit the Degree Verify website.

Degree Verify


Enrollment Verification

  • The University Registrar’s Office is responsible for certifying student enrollment. The university registrar maintains both past and present student records but cannot verify future enrollment. Students are not considered Woodbury University students unless they are currently enrolled at Woodbury.
  • Students can request enrollment verifications in person by coming to the Registrar’s Office in Miller Hall. Certification letters are usually prepared within three business days.
  • If the enrollment verification requires the completion of a form where grade-point average information is required, your request must include your signed release.
  • *Note: We will officially certify your enrollment only for the term(s) in which you are actually enrolled. Enrollments for a future term are processed after the first day of the new term. We only indicate “anticipated” enrollment for future terms if a verification needs to be sent prior to the start of a term.
  • There is no fee for this service.

Diplomas will be issued to students upon completion of their degree requirements (December, May, or August). The diploma will show the student’s official or legal name as it appears on the degree application unless changed in writing by the student prior to the graduation date for that student.

  • Woodbury’s longstanding policy is to have only one diploma extant. A replacement diploma in the name of the student as it appeared at the original time of issue will be provided upon written request of the student, return of the damaged diploma, if possible, and payment for materials and printing (replacement fees are currently $50.00). The replacement will be provided in the current format and with current signatures. Requests for a replacement diploma must include a daytime mailing address since a delivery receipt signature is required.
  • If a student’s name has been legally changed by court order, or gender change, a new diploma may be issued upon written request, including legal proof of the change, payment of the fee, and return of the original diploma.
