Clearinghouse Human Relations Policies


If you need a reasonable accommodation for any part of the employment process due to a physical or mental disability, please send an e-mail to or call (703) 742-4200. Reasonable accommodation requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

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

The Clearinghouse accepts unsolicited resumes directly from candidates only. Resumes from a recruiter or recruiting firm will only be accepted if there is a signed agreement with the Clearinghouse at the inception of the recruiting effort for the position. 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.

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.

COVID Vaccination Requirement

The health and safety of our employees and their families are top priorities of the National Student Clearinghouse. With the continuing impacts of COVID-19 in our nation and around the world, we are doing our part to protect the health and well-being of our workforce and the communities where we operate. The Clearinghouse is a federal contractor, rendering us subject to Executive Order 14042 and associated guidance requiring employees to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Therefore, all Clearinghouse employees and new hires must be fully vaccinated and provide proof of vaccination as a condition of employment, or have an approved reasonable accommodation (based on a disability or medical condition, or a sincerely held religious belief) exempting them from the vaccination requirement.

By applying for this position, you are stating that you are already fully vaccinated or will be fully vaccinated by January 18, 2022, or your start date if it is later than January 18, 2022, or you have a good faith basis for seeking an exemption from the vaccination requirement. Individuals requesting a reasonable accommodation should do so during the post-offer process, and any requested accommodations must be reviewed and approved (if applicable) before your start date.
