The National Student Clearinghouse has been a trusted partner to the nation's colleges since 1993, when we were founded as a nonprofit by the higher education community. Today the Clearinghouse is the leading provider of educational reporting, data exchange (including transcript services), verification, and research services.
The services offered by the Clearinghouse have been provided at the request of our participating institutions to enable them to better serve their students. Our work - performed in a trusted, secure and private environment - provides numerous time- and cost-saving benefits to students, schools, administrators, and requestors.
- More than 3,600 colleges and universities participate in the Clearinghouse, reporting enrollment and degree information to us regularly throughout the year.
- Participants enroll 98% of all students in public and private U.S. institutions.
- Our free and low-cost services save higher education institutions over $750 million annually.
Through our research arm, the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center, we provide educators and policymakers with accurate longitudinal data on student outcomes to enable informed decision making.
