About Macon State
Macon State College has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to act as our agent for all verifications of student enrollment and degrees awarded. Any request for a degree verification will be referred to the National Clearinghouse. For information, please visit the Clearinghouse online at www.studentclearinghouse.org or contact them by phone at (703)742-4200.
The Clearinghouse currently has a database with degree award information for students who have graduated since 1996. If an inquiry involves a student who graduated prior to 1996, or is not in the database, the Clearinghouse e-mails the Registrar's Office for that information which is contained in a manual legacy system. The response typically is immediate or within one business day. The information furnished then is added to the existing Clearinghouse database. Degree award information is furnished to the Clearinghouse at the conclusion of each term after graduates have cleared. Typically, that information is available within 30 days after the semester is over. Data for semester is furnished a second time approximately 90 days after the semester is over to ensure the inclusion of late graduates.
Enrollment verification data is furnished initially to the Clearinghouse approximately two weeks after classes for the semester has begun after all "drop" actions have occurred. Information is furnished periodically through the semester to update the Clearinghouse database. During this two-week interim period, the Office of the Registrar can accommodate emergency verification requests. Students who need more information concerning this and how to obtain a "free enrollment verification" from the Clearinghouse should click Enrollment Verification located on the Registration web page.
