Why is The National Student Clearinghouse involved? The FAS Registrar’s Office has partnered with the National Student Clearinghouse to collect inquiries for verifications. If the data you provide can be confirmed then the verification is instantaneous. However, the staff of the Registrar’s Office manually verifies requests whenever there is incomplete or potentially erroneous information. Please allow 8-10 business days for processing if we have to request materials from University Archives on your behalf.
There isn't any standard tool or process used to lottery at FAS. It’s up to the course how they want to approve petitions, and whether they want to provide any guidance to students about how they will be prioritizing approvals.
