Academic Records FAQ

For current students, access PAWS with your Campus ID and password. (CampusID is first initial, last name, and usually a number, such as JSmith108. It is the first part of your Georgia State email address, such as JSmith108@student.gsu.edu.)

If you were previously a student and do not have a Campus ID, use GoSOLAR to order a transcript.

Third parties must send in a written request with the student’s signed release. The third party can mail the Consent to Release Records to Third Parties request form [PDF], along with a $10 check or money order and the student’s signed release to:

Office of the Registrar
Georgia State University
P.O. Box 4017
Atlanta, GA 30302

The easiest way to get your enrollment verification is to print it from the National Student Clearinghouse. You can access your information in their system through PAWS.

If you need enrollment verification for health insurance, scholarships, auto insurance, current attendance or past attendance, for which, in some cases, the document printed from the National Student Clearinghouse will not be accepted, you may come into the Enrollment Services Center at 227 Sparks Hall to request your enrollment verification to be generated manually. You are required to submit documentation from the organization/company requiring this information along with your request.

We are contracted with the National Student Clearinghouse for all third party inquiries. Please visit their website at www.degreeverify.org or call them directly at 703-742-4200.
For security and legal purposes, a legal document, such as a drivers license, social security card, marriage license, divorce decree, adoption papers, certificate of name change at naturalization, or other court order indicating change of name, must be presented with the official Change in Name, Marital Status and/or Social Security Number form [PDF].
You will need to bring your original social security card to the Enrollment Services Center in room 227 Sparks Hall.
You will need to contact the professor of the class in question. View our page on Grade Changes for more information.
