Degree verification

Employers and Other Third-Parties

McMaster University has partnered with AuraData, Canada’s online education verification system for the purposes of verifying Undergraduate and Graduate degree completion status of McMaster University graduates for employers and other external parties. For degree verification please visit the AuraData website. Please note: AuraData verifies Doctor of Medicine degrees but does not verify Internships, Residency, or Post Doctoral Fellowships in the field of Medicine. These must be verified through the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine. AuraData verification is not available for post graduate and undergraduate certificates.

If you require a student to provide a letter of enrolment, they may request/produce a letter through the Mosaic Student Centre. This is only available the week after a convocation ceremony.

Recent Alumni

If you have been asked to provide Verification of Degree, you may do so through the Mosaic Student Centre > My Academics > Enrolment/Financial Letters > Degree Awarded Letter. This is only available the day after your convocation ceremony.

Accessing the Letter


You can select where you would like to have this message sent; cc your email address to receive a copy as well.


Input the address to print on your copy, print if off and drop it in the mail. Please note that selecting mail is not a request for our office to mail out your letter.


Printer friendly – save the letter as a PDF, you can then print it off, forward along or keep for your records.

Current Students

Current undergraduate students can check the Mosaic Student Centre > My Academics > View my Advisement Report or contact their Faculty Academic Advisor to determine if they have completed all of their degree requirements before graduation.

Starting in the last two weeks of May, an Approved to Graduate letter will become available through your Student Centre that you can use while you wait for your degree to be conferred by Senate. Please visit this website for a more detailed outline of the end of term schedule.
