The University of Southern California has contracted with the National Student Clearinghouse to provide 24/7 degree-checking services for alumni, students and employers around the world. Please note that you must register your company information with the National Student Clearinghouse to use this service.

As of January 31, 2005, verbal verification of academic information is no longer offered.

The third party must present their own photo ID as well as a copy of the record owner’s valid photo ID. This is required to maintain compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
