USC Department of Verifications

Web Requests

Use this service for Official Verifications only. The University of Southern California has authorized Avow Systems, Inc. to act as its agent for the processing of Web-based verification orders. Avow collects all required fees and forwards the request to the USC Registrar's office, where the verification is printed and released.

At the ordering site you will be asked to create an account. First-time users must sign and submit a consent to release form before a verification order can be processed. When placing your order, please have your academic record ID (10-digit USC ID or 9-digit SSN) and the dates of attendance at USC. Also, have your credit card name, number, and expiration date available. Students must clear holds on their records before the Verification Department will process the order. Current and recently enrolled students may check for holds on OASIS. Avow requires a $2.00 processing charge for this service per order. Payment on the card will be preauthorized. However, your credit card will not be billed until the verification order has been fulfilled. E-mail confirmation will be sent to you when your order has been processed. Official verifications may be ordered any time through at Avow by clicking here.

For questions or difficulty with the Avow site, please contact the USC Registrar’s Office at (213) 740-9230 or by email at gtv@usc.edu. Important Note: If you want to delay the release of your verification until the assignment of pending grades, degrees, changes, etc. have been completed; check your OASIS account to ensure that this information is present before you place your verification order.
