Enrolment Verification Letter (Proof of Enrolment)

Enrolment Verification letters (also referred to as ‘EVs’) are by far the most useful and versatile letters offered by UM. This letter can be used for a variety of purposes and is available for order online via Aurora. The document can be mailed or emailed.

What’s included?

This document is prepared on UM letterhead. Included information will be recorded as it exists in your Aurora account on the date that the letter is ordered. The letter will reflect your current program of study and enrolment information for one term of study. One page will be provided for each term of study.

The following student information is also included in the letter:

  • Your name
  • Student number
  • Date of birth
  • Current program information
  • Full or part time status for each term of the applicable academic year
  • Credit hours and course registration for the term of study
  • Total number of passed credit hours in the program
Common uses for an Enrolment Verification Letter

You may be asked to provide proof of registration to Registered Education Savings Plan providers, immigration officers or others during your time as a UM student. See the examples below:

  • Proof of enrolment for immigration applications
  • Proof of enrolment for insurance through MPI (international students)
  • Proof of enrolment for private healthcare providers (not needed for Manitoba Health)
  • Proof of enrolment for scholarships
  • Status letter
  • Proof of enrolment for Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) companies
    • Some RESP/Scholarship Trust Fund companies have their own form they request be filled out by the Registrar’s Office of a student’s home institution. The Registrar’s Office no longer accepts these forms. Instead, please submit a request for an Education Verification/Proof of Registration to be sent to the company.

Registration History

A registration history is an unofficial proof of enrolment document, displaying your registration history as seen in Aurora. This letter also includes the Registrar’s Office stamp and the signature of a Registration Representative.

This letter is unofficial; however, it can be used for several purposes. If you are unsure whether you require official proof of enrolment or a registration history, it is best to check with the person or organization who will be receiving the proof of enrolment to see what they require.

There is no fee for a registration history.
