Who is the National Student Clearinghouse?



The National Student Clearinghouse is a non-profit organization founded in cooperation with the higher education community in 1993 to simplify student enrollment reporting. Since our founding, we have provided student loan enrollment reporting and deferment processing for most of the nation's colleges and universities.

Participating schools regularly submit student enrollment and degree information to us, providing the Clearinghouse with the only nationwide collection of collegiate enrollment and degree records. As a result, we are able to offer a full suite of services to schools, such as academic verification and research, designed to help them improve efficiency, reduce costs, and provide better service to their students and alumni and others.

Today more than 3,600 U.S. colleges depend on the Clearinghouse, which has become the leading provider of educational reporting, verification and research. In addition, the Clearinghouse provides accurate, timely enrollment and degree verifications to student loan providers, employers, student credit issuers, the U.S. Department of Education.
