Miami University - Office of the Registrar - Enrollment Verification

Enrollment Verification

The National Student Clearinghouse (Clearinghouse) acts as Miami University's authorized agent for providing degree verification for graduates and enrollment verification for students. Clearinghouse receives data electronically from Miami University and, in compliance with FERPA, dispenses the information electronically to requesting lending institutions, prospective employers, background investigation firms, and credit granting agencies.


Miami University reports awarded degrees to Clearinghouse approximately two weeks after graduation. Student enrollment and anticipated graduation dates are reported to Clearinghouse approximately every 30 days, during the Fall and Spring semesters, and twice during the Summer session.

Effective Fall Semester 2011, enrollment status for verification purposes will be based on the following number of actively registered credit hours:


Undergraduate Students

Graduate Students

Fulltime status:

12 or more credit hours

9 or more credit hours

Halftime status*:

6-11 credit hours

5-8 credit hours

Less than halftime status:

< 6 credit hours

< 5 credit hours

*For undergraduate aid award determination purposes, a three-quarter time student is registered for 9-11 credit hours.

Courses from which a student withdraws and in which s/he receives a grade of ‘W’ will not count in enrolled/actively registered hours when determining a student’s enrollment status.

Students are strongly encouraged to contact their lenders and insurance agents to determine continued eligibility for loan deferments and insurance coverage before taking an action that will drop their enrollment status below full-time.
