Letters of Academic Standing

Students may need an official letter from the College confirming their academic status, including whether they are full-time and in good academic standing. The College can prepare these letters at a student's request. Students should follow these instructions:

Email college@sas.upenn.edu with the phrase "Request for a full-time good standing letter" in the subject line. The student should provide an email address to which the letter should be sent (it can be sent back to the student or on to a third party). The letter will be in PDF format; the College Office is not able to send hard-copy letters at this time.

Those requesting such letters should allow for at least three business days for processing (and during peak periods of the semester even more).

Students must be enrolled in no fewer than 3 c.u. in order to request a letter attesting to their full-time status. If a student is on academic probation for the current semester, the College will not be able to certify "good standing" in this letter.
