Enrollment Verifications

Simmons College uses the National Student Clearinghouse to verify enrollment for all of our students. The National Student Clearinghouse is an electronic database system that automatically notifies your loan companies when you are enrolled at Simmons. We submit enrollment information at the beginning, middle, and end of each semester. This way, students do not need to complete deferment paperwork or request enrollment verification forms in order to defer their loans.

To ensure that the information submitted to the Clearinghouse is accurate, please be sure to check your registration on AARC under "My Schedule" and verify your anticipated graduation date under the "Student Census Information" link.

To request a verification of enrollment letter, please stop by the Registrar's Office (C-116) with a photo ID or submit a request stating the following:

  • Full name
  • Student ID Number or Social Security Number
  • Dates of Attendance
  • Date of Birth
  • Daytime phone number
  • Address to send verification letter
  • Your signature

You may fax your request to Office of the Registrar at 617-521-3144. Your signature must be on the fax. You may also email a request using your Simmons email address.

We must use the following federal standards for enrollment status when reporting to the Clearinghouse:


  • Full-Time = 9 or more credits
  • Half-Time = 5-8 credits
  • Less Than Half-Time = 4 credits or less


  • Full-Time = 12 or more credits
  • Half-Time = 6-11 credits
  • Less Than Half-Time = 5 credits or less
