> Top 5 Questions About Verifying Enrollment

  1. Why do you have my enrollment information?

    EnrollmentVerify is a service of the National Student Clearinghouse, a non-profit organization, which provides educational reporting, verification and other services to colleges and universities throughout the U.S. As the authorized legal representative of its participating schools, the Clearinghouse is considered a primary source for enrollment, degree and attendance data and confirms this data on behalf of its participating schools to requestors without additions or changes.

  2. Why doesn't my certificate display my current enrollment?

    Your school may not have reported the data for the most current term to the Clearinghouse yet. Your verification shows the date your school last sent enrollment records to us and the term that the data covered. If the current term was not included, we can tell you when your school is scheduled to send its next enrollment record report to us and when the incoming data will be available from EnrollmentVerify.

    If you would like to know when your current enrollment term data will be available from EnrollmentVerify, please contact us and include:

    • Your EnrollmentVerify transaction ID (located on your credit card receipt email)
    • Your name
    • Name of your school
    • Semester you are attempting to confirm
  3. How do I print my enrollment certificate?

    If your verification is successful, you will be presented with a page providing your current and past enrollment information for the past 18 months at the school you selected. This page also includes a link to a PDF version of your enrollment certificate containing the same information, which you can print and/or save. You will NOT be able to access the certificate once you close EnrollmentVerify. If you think you might need the certificate more than once, you should save your certificate on your local computer (unless you are using a public or unsecure computer) or email it to yourself.

    If you forgot to save your certificate, you can request a copy at no charge by contacting us. Please include:

    • Your name
    • Your EnrollmentVerify transaction ID (located on your credit card receipt email)

    We will email you a copy of your certificate.

  4. Can I use a debit card to pay for my verification?

    Yes. Verifications can be purchased with a valid Visa or MasterCard debit card.

  5. Do you have a refund policy?

    Refunds are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. To request a refund, please contact us. Please include:

    • Your EnrollmentVerify transaction ID (located on your credit card receipt email)
    • Your name
    • Your school's name

    • Select your school from the dropdown menu.
    • Click "Submit" to go to your school's "Transcript Ordering Welcome" page.

    For further details, including an explanation of what the different types of order status mean, see the "Tracking a Transcript Order" section of Transcript Ordering Help.

    If your transcript hasn't been received, you should ...

    • Check the status of your order to make sure your school sent it (see steps above).
    • Allow enough time based on the delivery option you selected.
    • If your order status is "sent" AND you have allowed enough time for delivery, contact your school. Do NOT contact the Clearinghouse. Your school is the repository of your academic records and, therefore, is the only entity that can fulfill and send your transcript order(s). The Clearinghouse serves as the web order management agent for your school, but does not process or send transcript orders.
  3. How much does it cost to order a transcript?

    The total cost of a transcript varies and is determined by several factors:

    • Fee your school charges for the transcript itself
    • Surcharge for expediting transcript delivery (e.g., overnight delivery, electronic, etc.)
    • Quantity of transcripts ordered

    In addition, there is small processing fee charged for each recipient in your order. To find out the cost to order a transcript from your school, please visit your school's Web site.

  4. Why do I need to submit a consent form? How do I return it & how do I know if you received it?

    The Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) requires that a student give consent before his or her non-public educational information is released. Non-public information includes transcripts and is anything that a school does not classify as student directory information. Once we receive your consent form, we will notify you by email. During your session, a consent form will be generated for you. You should sign the form by hand and return it to us in any of the following ways within 30 calendar days*:

    • Fax: 1-703-742-4238 (be sure to dial 1-703 first)
    • Email: Send a scan of the form to transcripts@studentclearinghouse.org. The scanned attachment must be a GIF, JPEG, BMP or TIFF.
    • Mail: National Student Clearinghouse, 2300 Dulles Station Boulevard, Suite 300, Herndon, VA 20171

    You will also see a link to a paperless consent form that you can sign and submit electronically (if offered by your school).

    • Click "Sign Paperless Consent Form."
    • Use your mouse to sign your name in the signature box while holding down the left mouse button.
    • Click on "Save & Preview" to view your electronic signature.
    • Check the certification box displayed under your signature and click "Submit."

    For full instructions, see the "Submitting a Paperless Consent Form" section of Transcript Ordering Help.

    Once we receive your consent form, we will notify you by email.

    *Orders for which the consent forms have not been returned within 30 calendar days are automatically canceled. If your order is canceled, you will not be charged.

  5. Can I change or cancel my transcript order?

    You can change or cancel your order if you have not yet submitted it. If you have submitted your order, you can cancel it if you have not returned your signed consent form*.

    • Click the "Order or Track Now!" button above.
    • Select your school from the dropdown menu.

      - Transcript order number from your order confirmation email
      - Email address you used to place the order
    • Click the arrow button.
    • Click the "Cancel Order" button next to your request.

    If you have already returned your consent form, contact the registrar's office to request that the school cancel your order. The National Student Clearinghouse CANNOT cancel your order.

Check on my student loan deferment status

Most enrolled students at participating Clearinghouse schools will have deferments electronically processed by their loan holders, if they are eligible. However, it is possible that the loan holder or servicer could send you a deferment form. If so, you should take the deferment form to the registrar's office at your school, where it will be forwarded to the Clearinghouse for processing. (Do NOT send the form to the Clearinghouse directly; it must go through the registrar's office first.)

If your school participates in our Student Self-Service program, you can login from your school's Web site or student portal to check the deferment forms and electronic notifications that have been sent to your loan holders.

If you are still in school and receive a repayment letter, you should contact the loan holder or servicer to verify that the deferment has been processed. If it has not, contact the Clearinghouse to request assistance.

If you are on active military duty, including reservists, you may not be required to make student loan payments while you are deployed.

If you have an outstanding student loan and are, or soon will be, on active military duty, you should:

Contact your lender to inform them about your active duty status and find out what options are available to you while you are on active military duty. If you have taken out loans, even if they are not yet in repayment, you must take action. Otherwise your loans will automatically move to repayment while you are away. Your personal copy of your student loan records is the best place to identify all your lenders and their contact information.

If your institution is one of our Student Self-Service participants, you can access our LoanLocator service through your institution's secure student portal to find out who your lenders are and how to contact them. Check your school's Web site or contact the registrar's office to find out if your school participates in our free Student Self-Service, which offers free enrollment verifications to students at participating schools.
Provide your lender with a copy of your military orders.

Get info on my student loans

You have probably never heard of the National Student Clearinghouse. But if you have a student loan, the odds are that we've heard of you. That's because most U.S. colleges and universities rely on us to verify enrollment for their student loan borrowers and to help ensure their eligible students receive deferments promptly.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can you give me information on my student loans?

    Yes, if your school is one of the hundreds that participate in our Student Self-Service program, you can login from your school's Web site or student portal to obtain a list of your student loan holders and their contact information. You can also check the deferment forms and electronic notifications that have been sent to your loan holders. Many schools also use Student Self-Service to enable their students to directly access real-time information on their student loans, like outstanding balance and repayment and billing summary. Check your school's Web site or contact the registrar's office to find out if your school participates in our free Student Self-Service. If it does, you can login from your school's Web site or student portal to obtain an enrollment certificate and perform other enrollment verification activities via Student Self-Service at no charge.

    If your school is not a Student Self-Service participant, you should contact your school's financial aid department for assistance.

  • How do I get a deferment?

    If you have a student loan and are still enrolled in your school on at least a half-time basis, you may be eligible for a deferment. Most enrolled students at participating Clearinghouse schools receive deferments electronically. If, however, you receive a deferment form from your loan holder or servicer and are still enrolled, take the deferment form to the registrar's office at your school, where it will be forwarded to the Clearinghouse for processing. (Do NOT send the form to the Clearinghouse yourself; it MUST go through your registrar's office first.)

    NOTE: Deferment eligibility is ultimately determined by the loan provider.

  • What should I do about my student loan if I'm on active duty?

    If you are on active military duty, including the reserves, you may not have to make student loan payments while you are deployed. Contact your loan holder to inform them about your current (or approaching) active duty status and find out what deferment options are available. Be prepared to provide your loan holder with a copy of your military orders. Even if your student loans are not yet in repayment, you must take action. Otherwise your loans may go into repayment while you are away.

  • I'm still in school but got a repayment notice, what do I do?

    If you are still enrolled and receive a repayment letter, contact your loan holder or servicer to verify that your deferment has been processed or that you are eligible for a deferment. (If your school participates in our Student Self-Service program, you can login from your school's Web site or student portal to check the deferment forms and electronic notifications that have been sent to your loan holders.)

    If your deferment has not been processed, you should contact the Clearinghouse to request assistance from one of our Student Service representatives. The representative will verify your deferment information and, if you are being threatened with default, contact your loan holder to request that your deferment is processed on a priority basis.
