Credentialing

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill maintains the policies and procedures in accordance with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) meaning no information can be released from your file without your written consent. University policy states that nothing can be released from anyone’s file if there is a stop on the account, until that stop is cleared. A stop can be placed by any office within the University - the Cashier’s office, Health Science Library, Department of Transportation and Parking, Scholarships and Student Aid or the School of Medicine for monies overdue.

The Registrar’s office in the School of Medicine is responsible for releasing information to licensure boards, hospitals, clinics, etc. that need to verify that you received your MD degree from the UNC School of Medicine. This includes transcripts, letters and licensure forms.

Please send a letter (or attached consent form) including your PID or Social Security number, year of graduation, telephone number and written signature along with any forms that need to be verified to: UNC School of Medicine, Office of the Registrar, 1001 Bondurant Hall, CB#9535, Chapel Hill, NC 27516

There is no fee to fill out forms or send a letter. We charge a fee of $7.00 for each transcript requested. Please send a check made out to UNC School of Medicine for the correct amount. We allow a three (3) day turn around time once the information is received in our office. If you need your request sent by some type of express mail, you will need to include that prepaid envelope with your request.
