Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer

The National Student Clearinghouse is committed to hiring, promoting, and retaining a diverse workforce. We are proud to be an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer, making employment decisions without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, disability, genetic information or characteristics, protected veteran status, or any other protected class.

It is unlawful to discriminate because of a person’s relationship or association with a protected veteran. This includes spouses or other family members. The National Student Clearinghouse will safeguard the fair and equitable treatment of protected veteran spouses and family members with regard to all employment actions and prohibit harassment of applicants and employees before of their relationship with a protected veteran.

The company’s Affirmative Action Plans for Section 503 and VEVRAA are available for review by applicants and employees upon request during core business hours. All requests must be submitted in writing and mailed to:

National Student Clearinghouse
Attn: Human Resources Department
2300 Dulles Station Blvd, Suite 220
Herndon, VA 20171

Recruiters/Recruiting Firms and Staffing Agencies

The Clearinghouse accepts unsolicited resumes directly from candidates only. Resumes from a recruiter, recruiting firm, or staffing agencies will only be accepted if there is a signed agreement with the Clearinghouse and if the Clearinghouse approves opening the job requisition to your recruiting firm/staffing agency. An unsolicited resume to the Clearinghouse does not constitute a relationship between the recruiting firm and the Clearinghouse and does not obligate the Clearinghouse to pay fees should we hire the candidate.

The Clearinghouse is currently set up to hire in the following states – Alabama, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Maine, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming, plus the District of Columbia. For open positions, refer to the job posting for any specific location requirements.

If you currently reside in a state that is not included in this list, we may not be able to consider your application at this time.

Pay Transparency Policy

The Clearinghouse will not discharge or in any other manner discriminate against employees or applicants because they have inquired about, discussed, or disclosed their own pay or the pay of another employee or applicant. However, employees who have access to the compensation information of other employees or applicants as a part of their essential job functions cannot disclose the pay of other employees or applicants to individuals who do not otherwise have access to compensation information, unless the disclosure is (a) in response to a formal complaint or charge, (b) in furtherance of an investigation, proceeding, hearing, or action, including an investigation conducted by the Clearinghouse, or (c) consistent with the Clearinghouse’s legal duty to furnish information. Essential job functions are the fundamental duties of a position: the things a person holding the job absolutely must be able to do.  41 CFR 60-1.35(c)


As a Federal Contractor, the National Student Clearinghouse is required to participate in the E-Verify Program to confirm eligibility to work in the United States. For information regarding your legal rights and protections, go to E-Verify or Right to Work.
