Customized Letter Requests
The University Registrar’s office at The Ohio State University does not complete forms or generate customized letters verifying information otherwise available on an official academic transcript, enrollment or degree verification, or student Statement of Account.
Please see below a list of common requests and how to request documentation for each.
An official transcript shows completed and in-progress courses, grade point average (GPA), and any academic probationary statuses. Please note, the GPA is not weighted at Ohio State.

General information about Ohio State
English is the language of instruction
Within higher education, institutions often waive the requirement for documenting the language of instruction from an American institution. For international admissions purposes, higher educational institutions have an understanding that institutions from certain countries only teach in one specified language.
Degree requirements are maintained by the student’s college office of enrollment. Only the student’s college office can verify when a student is projected to complete their degree requirements, if they have completed their degree requirements before a degree was awarded, or that they will be awarded a degree before the degree is awarded.
