How to apply for a Dean’s Certification

Many graduate schools as well as professional organizations require a Dean’s Certification to check your disciplinary records as well as your academic disciplinary history. Completion of a Dean’s Certification form involves a check of your disciplinary records as well as your academic disciplinary history.

Schools or organizations may have their own form that will need to be filled out by Muir College or they may request a general letter outlining your disciplinary history while at UC San Diego.  Either way, the steps for having your Dean Certification completed can be found below:

  1. Receive information from the Graduate School or Professional Organization
  2. Complete any personal information sections that the school or organization requires
  3. Fill out the John Muir College Disclosure Form (PDF)
