National Student Clearinghouse
The National Student Clearinghouse reports student enrollment and degree information
as an authorized agent for the University of South Carolina. Participating guarantors,
lenders or service providers will usually not require an individual enrollment verification
letter from USC.

Once your degree has been posted, you may proceed with ordering a transcript or requesting a degree verification.
