Our Value to You

Since 1993, the National Student Clearinghouse has been higher education’s trusted and secure partner committed to privacy and transparency. Our free Enrollment Reporting service provides institutions with automated enrollment verification and deferment reporting to the Department of Education and education finance industry. This improves data accuracy and helps institutions stay in compliance, while reducing their workload. Through Compliance Central, the Clearinghouse Academy, and our Audit Resource Center, we provide best practices, audit support and training to help institutions maintain compliance.
