Third Party Enrollment Verification

Enrollment information - status (full-time or part-time), dates of attendance, degrees sought or awarded, and program of study - has been defined by the University as "directory information". Therefore, it may be released to third parties without the written authorization of the student according to the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

A third party such as an employer, insurance carrier, background screening firm, etc. must contact the National Student Clearinghouse, our authorized agent for providing enrollment and degree verification, for this information. The Clearinghouse may be contacted at (703)742-4200, www.studentclearinghouse.org or degreeverify@studentclearinghouse.org. Their mailing address is
