188.8.131.52 NSCH Reporting
In the United States, educational institutions are required to report specific data regarding the enrollment status of students to the National Student Clearing House. The National Student Clearing House (NSCH) is a private organization governed by a board of directors comprising of representatives from educational institutions, guarantors, and lenders. It aims to facilitate reporting by universities to student loan industry participants and to the Government. The NSCH collects data on both students and sponsors, which can subsequently be used to facilitate the administration of granting student loans, as well as for reference purposes when students are applying for employment or further courses of study.
