National Student Clearinghouse Checks

The University of Toledo completes a National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) check on all transfer and adult students. The check allows us to see all previous institutions you have attended. In order to process your application, we require official transcripts from any schools listed on the NSC check. You will be notified of any additional documents needed.
