Ryerson University Degree Verification Service - DVS
The Degree Verification Service relies on information available in our Student Administration System. There are students whose degree information may not be available in electronic format. This includes, but is not necessarily limited to, students who graduated prior to 1984.
To confirm graduation status for students who graduated prior to 1984, please fax your request to: 416-979-5236 using Ryerson's Education Verification Request Form.

If your search is successful, the screen will display a unique record to match the information you entered. DVS will not provide multiple results (e.g., everyone with the name Mary Jones). You must include enough information in your search to prompt a unique response. This helps to protect our alumni information as much as possible.
If the Degree Verification Service cannot find a unique match or other search challenges are encountered, you can refine your search and try again. If your search is still unsuccessful, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and your verification request will be conducted manually. Manual searches may take up to five (5) business days or longer during peak demands (e.g. beginning or end of terms).
Note: The Degree Verification Service will be unavailable between 12:00 a.m. - 2:00 a.m. EST for maintenance.
