The National Student Clearinghouse acts as Michigan Technological University’s authorized agent for providing degree verification for graduates and enrollment verification for students. The Clearinghouse receives data electronically from Michigan Tech and, in compliance with FERPA, dispenses the information electronically to requesting lending institutions, prospective employers, background investigation firms, and credit-granting agencies.
