For enrollment certification to lenders, the University of West Florida participates in the National Student Clearinghouse (http://www.nslc.org/). Beginning the week after the first week of classes, the University submits a report of students' enrollment status to theClearinghouse every week, which, in turn, supplies certification of enrollment to lending agencies. All deferment loan forms are forwarded to the Clearinghouse. UWF does not supply thisinformation directly to lending agencies.
