Third-Party Verification Requests

Important Note

Northeastern University issues degree verifications through the National Student Clearinghouse for students who were awarded degrees from 2010 forward.


Verification Processing Time

  • Standard mail and fax verification processing time is usually two to three business days.
  • Verifications are not processed for students with financial holds.

Degree verifications contain alumnus/alumna name and degree received. They can be requested by outside organizations/individuals (HR offices, background check companies, etc.).

There is an associated fee for this service. Be sure to select Northeastern University from the drop-down menu.
