About Dean Of Students

DEAN'S CERTIFICATIONS

The Dean's Certification/disciplinary record check is a letter of clearance that verifies you, as a current or former UIC student, have not violated any university policies or been subject to any disciplinary actions or proceedings. These requests are typically required by graduate and professional schools, state bar associations, government agencies, or independent agencies when applying for admission or employment. If you are a current or former UIC student, or an investigator completing a background check, please bring or submit your request to our office for completion.

If you are a current or former student who needs to have a Dean’s certification or disciplinary record check completed, of if you are an investigator completing a background check, please bring or send the form to be completed to our office:

3030 Student Services Building
1200 W. Harrison, MC 318
Chicago, IL 60607

Our office MUST receive a signed waiver from the student that allows us to share educational records in order to complete a Dean’s certification / discipline check. On most institutional forms, there is a section that the student is asked to sign for this purpose. If you need a separate waiver form (uncommon), please click here.

Please allow at least 2-3 business days for completion of your form. Feel free to contact our office at 312-996-4857 with any questions or concerns.
