Dean's Certification/Background Check Process

In order for us to process a Dean's Certification or Background Check, you must provide us the following:

  • Your Dean’s Certification form(s) signed and dated.
  • If your form does not explicitly authorize Miami University to release information, then you will need to submit a letter with your original signature authorizing us to release academic and judicial information (be sure to list each school/institution for which we need to complete a Dean Certification or Background Check).
  • Your current contact information (address, phone, & e-mail) in case we need to contact you.
  • A stamped, pre-addressed envelope for each Dean’s Certification/Background Check you would like completed and mailed.

If you have questions about filling out the form or with the process, feel free to call 513-529-1877 for more information.

Please note that although every effort is made for a quick turn-around on these forms, completion of Dean’s Certification may take up to seven working days to complete. Please plan accordingly.
