  • What is the National Student Clearinghouse?

    Most U.S. institutions provide their current enrollment and graduation data to the National Clearing House.
    The Clearinghouse acts as their agent providing deferment information for financial aid students to the education finance industry and Department of Education. In addition, it provides certain additional services which institutions may utilize such as self-service enrollment verification.

  • What information is on an enrollment verification form?

    Verification forms include your name, enrollment status, and the valid dates of that status.

  • Do enrollment verification forms include any academic information such as GPA?

    No, these forms do not include GPA. If you require academic information, such as a “good student discount,” you must request an official academic transcript ( )  .

  • Will an enrollment verification provide proof of enrollment for the entire upcoming school year?

    No, the form will not verify future terms. It will only verify enrollment for the term(s) in which you have been or currently are enrolled (registered for courses).

  • I am a new student who has not yet registered for classes. Can I provide proof of enrollment to my insurance company?

    No, not yet. Once you are enrolled in courses, you may request an enrollment verification. We recommend you wait until the “Census Date” (10th day from the day classes begin).

  • My insurance company provided a form to fill out. Do I have to use that one?

    No, you may print the online enrollment verification form and attach it to the form the insurance company has provided. This is typically accepted by most agencies.

    The form includes a space at the top where you may enter policy/account information; refer/see the Verification Certificate sample image.

  • Are electronic enrollment verification available to all students?

    No, if a student does not have a Social Security Number recorded in our Student information system, we are unable to provide an electronic enrollment verification.
