Verification of enrollment must be made by written request; your signature is required, authorizing Green River to release the information. Verifications may be mailed-in or submitted in-person at the Registration Office, picture ID required.
Verifications will not be completed for future quarters. Verifications for current students will be processed beginning the first day of the quarter. Often, your quarterly schedule can be used, if an official signature is not required. Refer to Online Services to print documents.
You can submit forms from outside agencies or submit the Enrollment Verification form to Enrollment Services by mail or in person. Allow 48 business hours for processing.

Green River Community College uses a service called the National Student Clearinghouse. Outside agencies, such as credit card companies, travel companies, consumer product companies, and employers contact the Clearinghouse for enrollment verification. They can contact the National Student Clearinghouse by:
Phone: (703) 742-4200 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:15
Fax: (703) 742-4239
Web site: www.studentclearinghouse.org
The Clearinghouse will not be able to verify student enrollment for students who have elected to block release of "directory information" under FERPA. Students must contact Enrollment Services in person to request a block be placed on their record.
Only directory information can be released without student's authorization to lenders, employers, or other organizations authorized as eligible requesters under contracts with educational institutions. Directory information may include the following:
- Major field of study
- Participation in officially recognized activities and sports
- Weight and height of members of athletic teams
- Dates of attendance
- Degrees and awards received
- Most recent previous educational agency or institution attended
A deferment allows you to temporarily postpone your monthly payments. If you have a subsidized Stafford Loan, the federal government will pay the interest for you during a period of deferment. For other loans, interest will accrue during deferments.
You must be attending an eligible institution at least half-time (6 credits at Green River).
The loan company will either use the National Student Clearinghouse or send you an In-School Deferment Form to have filled out and sent back.
For more information on Loan Deferments go to the US Dept. of Education website.
What is the National Student Clearinghouse?
The National Student Clearinghouse, a non-profit organization, was founded by the higher education community in 1993. Only the Clearinghouse offers FERPA-compliant access to a nationwide coverage of enrollment and degree records - encompassing more than 110 million students and growing. The research arm of the Clearinghouse, the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center, was created in 2010.
What Does the National Student Clearinghouse Do?
The Clearinghouse helps educational institutions improve efficiency, reduce costs and workload, and enhance the quality-of-service we provide to our students and alumni, lending institutions, employers, and other organizations. Through their one-of-a-kind access to national student outcomes data and educational research services, the Clearinghouse also serves as a valuable source for longitudinal and other studies on educational progress.
