Enrollment & Degree Verifications
The National Student Clearinghouse acts as The University of Toledo's authorized agent for providing degree verification for graduates and enrollment verification for students. The clearinghouse receives data electronically from The University of Toledo and, in compliance with FERPA, dispenses the information electronically to requesting lending institutions, prospective employers, background investigation firms, and credit granting agencies. Some organizations may require proof of authorization to accompany a student’s enrollment verification. Therefore, please print a copy of the Enrollment Verification Supporting letter to send with the enrollment verification if needed. A sample enrollment verification can be found here.
Free Self Service Enrollment Verifications(for students with an active myUT account)

What to do if you have an enrollment form to be completed?
The self-service enrollment verifications can be used for health insurers, credit issuers, housing providers, and others seeking verification of your enrollment. All such verifications/certifications printed from the National Student Clearinghouse secure site are considered official and need no further institutional signatures or seals. The Clearinghouse enrollment verification/certification form is easily and clearly identifiable with the distinctive “tree” watermark.
**Please Note: Even after graduation, privacy preferences remain in effect. As an example: If a student has restricted the release of directory information, The University of Toledo and the National Student Clearinghouse cannot confirm enrollment or degrees earned to prospective employers or any other party without the student's written permission. The privacy preference may be added or reversed by submitting a written and signed request on Main Campus to Rocket Solution Central in Rocket Hall room 1200 or in the Registrar's Office on Health Science Campus in Mulford Library room 114. These can also be faxed to 419.530.4828 . Current students may change their privacy preferences from the My Toolkit in the myUT portal.
