For Employers and Background Screening Firms

The University of Mary has teamed with the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) to provide an efficient way to provide enrollment verifications.

NSC receives data from the University of Mary and, in compliance with FERPA, dispenses the information electronically to requesting lending institutions, prospective employers, background investigation firms, and credit granting agencies. This service provides convenient access 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
