What is Enrollment Verification?
Enrollment Verifications serve as proof of your status as a student. Insurance companies, loan agencies and other organizations may require a verification in order for you to be eligible for certain benefits. In some cases, verification may be necessary to prove that you did not attend National Park Community College.
• Full-Time Status: 12 or more credit hours per term *
• Half-Time Status: 6 to 11 credit hours per term
• Less Than Half-Time Status: 1-5 credit hours per term
*Dropping below full-time status may affect such items as insurance eligibility, loan deferments and financial aid.
Summer semester only: Full-time status is 6 or more credit hours. Be advised that having just 6 credit hours might affect your financial aid.
Military students: The Veterans Administration determines status.
Types of Verifications
Unofficial enrollment verification can be obtained by students via OASIS self-service - go to: Self Service, Academic Records, Request Enrollment Verification.
For official enrollment verification, complete the Verification Request Form and either bring it to the College’s main switchboard located on the third floor of the Gerald Fisher Campus Center, or send by mail to: NPCC - Attn: Office of the Registrar, 101 College Drive, Hot Springs, AR 71913. The verification will be completed within five business days, but at the beginning of a term, allow for extra processing time.
Please note that verification of enrollment for future terms will be tentative; official verification of enrollment will not be given until after the census date for that term (11th class day for Fall/Spring semesters, 5th class day for Summer semesters).
A loan deferment allows a student to defer payments of a previously disbursed loan if the student is currently enrolled as at least a half-time student. Check with your lender for specific deferment requirements. Students needing to defer their loans should contact their lender for specifications on requesting a loan deferment. Loan deferment forms can be accessed through your lender’s web site. Forms should be signed and forwarded to NPCC – Attn: Loan Deferments.
While you are in deferment, it is your responsibility to notify your lender of any changes.
Good Student Discounts
Good student discount programs are generally offered through auto insurance companies for policy discounts. Insurance companies have different and specific regulations for granting good student discounts. Check with your auto insurance agent/company for eligibility requirements. Read all insurance forms carefully. If you meet the eligibility requirements, follow the instructions for official enrollment verification. If your insurance company provides you with a form that must be signed by a school official certifying your eligibility, you must also submit the criteria.
Third Party Verification
Third party verification occurs when a request is made by a third party, i.e. a potential employer or insurance company, regarding your enrollment status, degrees earned or terms of past attendance. (FERPA rules apply.) For more information, call (501) 760-4164.
