Enrollment Certification


The University of Kansas participates in the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) located in Herndon, VA. Four times a semester (after the second day of classes, at approximately 20th day, mid semester, and after finals) KU submits a secure FTP (File Transfer Protocol) of students' enrollment status to the NSC who then supplies verification to lending agencies. All loan deferment forms are now forwarded to the NSC. The University does not supply information directly to lending agencies. This process speeds the flow of information to lenders and provides them with an available record of all enrollment status including enrollment at other, participating, institutions. The University of Kansas joined this service to enhance speed and accuracy.

Deferments for current enrollment will not be sent until after the first day of the semester. If you need to notify the lender of a previous semester's enrollment, please indicate this on the deferment request. You must be enrolled at least half time, or be enrolled in at least 3 hours with a GTA/GRA appointment, or be in a special internship program approved by the University to qualify for a deferment. If a student registers late, or receives an exception for a retroactive withdrawal, this information may not be reported until the next submission cycle.

Enrollment Certification for Loan Deferments

Occasionally your circumstances may necessitate that a manual deferment form be submitted to your lender. If that is the case, please complete our loan deferment form. Be sure to be in contact with your lender to see if they are a Clearinghose participant prior to submitting the form to our office. Submission of a deferment form in conjunction of the report from the Clearinghouse may cause problems particularly if there is a discrepancy in the two due to a change in enrollment between the date of the form and the date of the submission. If you have a unique situation, please contact our certification staff to explain your needs.


If you are eligible for deferment, but received a collection letter you should:

Contact your lender or loan servicer to verify your deferment status. Sometimes deferment forms are received between the time the NSC supplies the information and the lending agency sends out collection letters.

If your lender or servicer is unable to verify your deferment, contact the National Student Clearinghouse at:

  • Phone: 703-742-4200
  • Customer Service hours: Mon.-Thu., 9 am-7 pm and Fri., 9 am-5 pm EST)
  • E-mail: service@studentclearinghouse.org
  • Fax: 703-742-7792
  • Mail:
    National Student Clearinghouse
    13454 Sunrise Valley Dr., Suite 300
    Herndon, VA 20171.
  • Web: www.studentclearinghouse.org

If an emergency exists - ie: you are being threatened with default - the Clearinghouse will contact the lender with the appropriate information and ensure the proper form is processed on a high priority basis.


Third Party Requests:

The Office of the University Registrar does not provide documentation of enrollment status at the request of a third party. Third parties must submit their request to the National Student Clearinghouse online, by telephone (703.742.4200), or by fax (703.742.4239).
