Ryerson University Degree Verification Service - DVS

The Degree Verification Service is an online service which confirms whether or not a degree (undergraduate or graduate) and/or a certificate has been received from Ryerson University. It will also specify the type of degree or certificate and the year in which it was received. 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.

There are 2 ways to search for an individual:

1) You must have the student's surname and first name along with the student number

OR

2) You must have the student's surname and first name along with the student's date of birth.

If you have the necessary information to begin your search, select the link below.

To search by Student Number:

  • Enter the nine digit Student Number (mandatory) provided to you by the person whose degree is being verified
  • Enter the person's surname (mandatory) and the first name (mandatory).
  • Type the verification word in the field indicated and then begin your search.

To search by Date of Birth:

  • Enter the person's day and month of birth (mandatory).
  • Enter the person's surname (mandatory).
  • Enter the person's first name (mandatory). You may also enter their middle name (optional).
  • Type the verification word in the field indicated and then begin your search

Note - If a person has changed their name since their graduation:


DVS will only match with their original name. A match to a new name will only occur if the graduate has updated their information on file at Ryerson.

If the student graduated prior to 1984 or if your search is unsuccessful:

To confirm graduation status for students who graduated prior to 1984, or for those searches that were not successful, please submit your request by email to studentrecords@ryerson.ca and your verification will be conducted manually.

Ryerson University Student Records provides degree verification at no charge. All other information, such as dates of attendance and/or current enrolment for non-graduates, must be requested by the student using our Request a Letter procedures. Further information on requesting a letter is available at https://www.ryerson.ca/registrar/students/letters-verifications/

We are always looking for ways to improve our service. If you have any comments or feedback on this degree verification service, we would be happy to hear from you at studentrecords@ryerson.ca .

Note: The Degree Verification Service will be unavailable between 12:00 a.m. - 2:00 a.m. EST for maintenance.
