Dean's Certifications

A Dean’s Certification is a statement of an applicant’s academic and disciplinary record, or lack thereof. If you are applying to transfer from Brandeis, are going on to law school, medical school or graduate school, you may require a Dean’s Certification. Other special circumstances, such as applying for the Bar Association or applying for positions with the government, may also require a Dean’s Certification. Dean’s Certifications often have other names — Dean’s Report, College Report, Coalition Report, Transfer Report, etc. — these are all handled through a request from Academic Services.

Dean's Certification requests take 10-14 business days to process. Please plan ahead.
