National Student Clearinghouse Enrollment Verification Instructions

The National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) provides verification of student enrollment. Verifying your enrollment is a critical step in the application process. The certificate that the NSC provides is an acceptable form of verification, in place of the Letter of Attendance that our program requires from applicants. You will need a debit or credit card to obtain the certificate. The NSC charges $2.50 for enrollment certification.

If you would like to use this service, please follow the directions below. It is important to note that not all colleges and universities participate in the NSC service. If you are unable to obtain enrollment verification through NSC, you may obtain an original Letter of Attendance from your school’s Registrar’s office or portal website, at no charge. The enrollment verification certificate must be dated after the student’s first day of classes, and confirm that he/she is enrolled full time (a minimum of 12 credits). Please make sure that start and end dates for the current term are included on the enrollment verification.
