Academic Records

The Office of Registrar Services at the UTRGV School of Podiatric Medicine is responsible for maintaining permanent records and documents that pertain to each matriculated student's progress through podiatry school. These records include application materials, podiatry school evaluations, official transcripts of all podiatry school coursework, documentation of grade changes, American Podiatric Medical Licensing Examination (APMLE) scores administered by the National Board of Podiatric Medical Examiners and APMLE ID number, official dates of enrollment, Podiatric Medical Student Performance Evaluations (PMSPE), documentation of dismissal or withdrawal, copy of diploma, copy of Federation of State Medical Boards and other state licensing forms. The procedures used in managing these records are consistent with established standards and existing regulations. Educational records are considered confidential.

Enrollment Verifications

An enrollment verification of a student is used to officially verify a student's enrollment status, anticipated graduation date, and proof of attendance. This is often needed for loan deferments, insurance companies, banks, conference attendance, organizational membership applications, and other interested parties.

Students at the UTRGV School of Podiatric Medicine may request enrollment verifications by downloading and completing the Enrollment Documentation Request Form and forwarding it to our SOPM Registrar Services Offices at If appropriate, enrollment verifications will also certify good standing at UTRGV SOPM.

Certifications of Good Standing

A Certification of Good Standing is used to certify enrollment and to officially certify that the student is in good standing at the UTRGV School of Podiatric Medicine. Broadly defined, a student in good standing is one who is eligible to continue, return, or transfer elsewhere. It implies good academic standing and good citizenship. Like an enrollment verification, this certification is also often needed for good student discounts, insurance companies, banks, conference attendance, organizational membership applications, and other interested parties.

Students at the UTRGV SOPM may use the same Enrollment Documentation Request Form to request a certification of good standing.
