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.

Coming Soon! Third-Party Transcript Ordering for Admissions - Clearinghouse Today Blog

The Clearinghouse plans to kick off the summer by launching our newest Transcript Service, Third-Party Ordering for Admissions! Through this convenient new service, admissions officers can order transcripts on behalf of students who have been admitted or are applying to their institutions.

Our new service substantially cuts the time it takes to admit and enroll new students. That’s because admissions officers, who have the student’s consent, can place the transcript order directly. Electronic transcripts are securely delivered to the admissions officer via our ETX Plus service, where they can be quickly and easily downloaded.

Stay tuned for more details on our Third-Party Ordering for Admissions service, including how your institution can participate. https://bit.ly/3e8nJss

The upcoming release of our new Third-Party Ordering for Admissions service will enable admissions officers to easily order transcripts on behalf of students admitted or applying to their institutions.
