New Process for Student Enrollment Verification Requests
Records would like to announce that, beginning with the 2011 Fall quarter, most enrollment verification requests (proof of enrollment) will be processed electronically through the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC).
The NSC is a nonprofit organization that services schools and employers by providing verification of degree and enrollment status.
This service allows instant 24/7 confirmation of enrollment and degree verification requests from health and auto insurers, employers and employment agencies, credit grantors, travel companies, computer hardware and software vendors and other organizations.
Additional information for students and staff will be distributed to Student Services offices at all campuses and centers before the beginning of the Fall quarter.

Weekly Green Tip
Buy block cheese instead of presliced individually wrapped servings. The energy used to make the plastic wrappers for slices of American cheese amounts to the equivalent of more than 13.8 million gallons of gasoline per year-enough for the entire population of Milwaukee to carpool out west to visit the happy cows of California. - The Green Book
