How to Report a Revoked Degree
On occasion, an institution faces unfortunate circumstances that result in the need to revoke a degree that has been awarded. It is important that you immediately notify the Clearinghouse, as your degree verification partner. Frequently, an individual involved in a possible revocation will attempt to complete verifications before the record can be corrected, so it is important to notify the Clearinghouse as soon as possible.
An authorized institutional user of the Clearinghouse service (such as the registrar, assistant registrar, records manager, etc.) must send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with identifying information on the revoked degree, including name, date of birth, degree title, and award date. Please remember, do not include Social Security numbers in emails! The Clearinghouse will locate the record and delete it from our DegreeVerify service.

If the degree was confirmed by any requestors in the last 60 days, the Clearinghouse will contact and inform the requestor that the results, based on information from the school, need to be amended and that we cannot verify the degree. The Clearinghouse will also update enrollment verification records to correct the “graduated” status. After deletion, the degree will be marked as inactive, but be retained for audit purposes. However, it will not be accessible to the institution through our Student Look-up feature.
