Requesting Documentation


After the completion of AOD education, students may request documentation of attendance.


Students may request a standardized letter for verification to provide to non-GVSU parties. The letter is the extent of what will be provided. Students are responsible for verifying that both the course and the documentation will meet the needs of their probation officer, lawyer, judge, etc.

Documentation will be processed within 10 business days after a request is received depending on how the letter is requested and received (see below).

Fee: $10 will be charged for each letter, including replacement letters. Payment must be received before the letter will be released.

Requesting Documentation:

Please complete the AOD Attendance Verification form.  Please note, you will be prompted for payment at the time of submission.  We will not receive your request without payment.

Documentation Delivery:

You will have the choice of how to obtain documentation. However, It is your responsibility to verify that the documentation has arrived prior to the deadline and meet the necessary requirements.

Document Delivery Options:

  1. On-campus pick-up: During business hours, individuals may come to the AOD office, 206 STU, with a photo ID to pick up their attendance verification letter (GVSU ID or Government Issued ID only).
  2. Electronic Delivery: Individuals may choose to receive their verification letter via email. This will be provided in a locked PDF format. At the time of delivery, you will be provided with a password that will allow you to access the document for a limited amount of times. Please be mindful of this if you need to print your verification. 
  3. Mailed: If selected, AOD will mail you the signed verification letter. Please be mindful that this option may take longer to receive your letter. We recommend you plan for 10 business days minimum.

Once an AOD Attendance Verification request has been received, a signed letter will be generated and sent to you using the method you request. Courts generally accept only an original signed copy of our verification letter, no faxed or scanned documents.  We recommend that students pick up an original letter or have an original document mailed to them. If a student requests an emailed copy, it is their responsibility to make sure that the document will meet the necessary requirements. If an original copy has to be produced due to an electronic version not meeting requirements, there will be an additional fee and time associated with producing it.
