New! Enhanced School Name Matching and School Code Search

Feb 21, 2018 | Education Verification Resources, In the News, Service Updates

We’re excited to announce the following new enhancements that are now available on our website for our DegreeVerify service!

Enhanced School Name Matching

We know that selecting the correct school for your verifications can be challenging when so many schools have similar names. That’s why we added new intelligence that searches similarly named schools whenever there isn’t an immediate match to your original school selection. If a match is located at a similarly named school, you’ll be prompted to decide whether or not to proceed with the verification at the recommended school. This new intelligence helps improve your chances of getting your request to the right school faster by:

  • Increasing the likelihood of locating your request with ONE single transaction
  • Eliminating the need to submit your request to multiple schools when you’re uncertain of your selection
  • Ensuring the final school selection choice is YOURS!

Search Using School Code

In response to requests from a number of our clients, we also added the ability to search using school codes in addition to school names. This offers another way to ease the burden of locating the school you want to verify. For a complete list of school codes, please see our participating DegreeVerify schools list.

The Clearinghouse continues to strive to optimize and improve the DegreeVerify process for you. Stay tuned for additional school branch matching and XML service enhancements in the coming weeks and months.
