    Verify Your Enrollment for Financial Aid Lenders (Student Loans)

    If your lender specifically asks you to provide verification before the university has notified the clearinghouse, or if you believe the lender has received inaccurate information from the clearinghouse, you can obtain an enrollment verification letter (request online; instructions below).
