Owens Community College has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to act as our agent for verifications of student enrollment. Students may obtain a free printable verification of enrollment through Ozone.
The Clearinghouse makes it possible for students and companies needing current enrollment verifications to obtain instantaneous certifications of student enrollment on their website. This service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Companies and students requesting enrollment verifications should contact the Clearinghouse:

Owens Community College participates in the National Student Loan Clearinghouse located in Herndon, Virginia. The College electronically submits student enrollment status information throughout each term to the Clearinghouse, which in turn supplies verification of enrollment to lending agencies.
A number of lenders and loan servicing organizations that are members of the Clearinghouse participate in a Paperless Deferment Process. With this process, no paper forms need to be completed by either students or schools—the student simply calls his or her lender to request a deferment. The lender then matches this request against the Clearinghouse electronic data and verifies the in-school status of the student.
If a lender does not participate in the Paperless Deferment Process and needs a paper deferment form completed, the form should be submitted to Oserve. Paper deferment forms turned in to Oserve are forwarded to the Clearinghouse, which completes the forms and returns them to the lender. Owens Community College does not supply this information directly to lending agencies. If a student has registered late for courses or has had an exception processed to the term registration, this information may not be reported until the submission of the next enrollment file to the Clearinghouse. The College submits an enrollment file once each month.
If you receive a collection letter from a lender, or receive multiple deferment forms from a lender during a term in which you believe you should be in a deferred status, do the following:
