National Student Clearinghouse

National Student Clearinghouse Formed in 1993, the nonprofit National Student Clearinghouse is the nation's trusted source for education verification and student outcomes research.
The National Student Clearinghouse, a nonprofit formed in 1993, is the trusted source for and leading provider of higher education verifications and electronic education record exchanges. The Clearinghouse serves as a single point of contact for the collection and timely exchange of accurate and comprehensive enrollment, degree, and certificate records on behalf of its more than 3,700 participating higher education institutions, which represent 99 percent of all students in public and private U.S. institutions. The Clearinghouse also provides thousands of high schools and districts with continuing collegiate enrollment, progression, and completion statistics on their alumni. Through its verification, electronic exchange, and reporting services, the Clearinghouse saves the education community cumulatively over $750 million annually. Most Clearinghouse services are provided to colleges and universities at little or no charge, including enhanced transcript and research services, enabling institutions to redistribute limited staff and budget resources to more important student service efforts. Clearinghouse services are designed to facilitate an institution’s compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, The Higher Education Act, and other applicable laws. The Clearinghouse has signed the Student Privacy Pledge and is the first recipient of iKeepSafe.org’s FERPA compliance badge, which was awarded to its StudentTracker for High Schools service.

Some colleges and universities are bringing the classroom to the workplace

At a time when American employers — and Americans in general — think colleges and universities aren’t bringing workplace skills to the classroom, some colleges and universities are bringing the classroom to the workplace.
One university offers a resort and hospitality management program at the Killington ski resort, where students live and work. Another university teaches fermentation at a brewery. https://bit.ly/2vqEbUf

At a time when employers think colleges and universities aren’t providing workplace skills, some colleges are bringing the classroom to the workplace.
