Security Certificate Update
The National Student Clearinghouse will renew the SSL certificate that encrypts all data exchanged via our production site, secureapi.studentclearinghouse.org. Because Student Self-Service relies on secure server-to-server communications, our SSL certificate renewal will impact the ability of your system to communicate with the Clearinghouse’s systems if your school does not download and install the certificate.
Action By February 1, 2023
It is CRITICAL that your school’s system administrator acts before February 1, 2023. This routine procedure, which should only take a few minutes for your system administrator to complete, will ensure your students have uninterrupted access to Student Self-Service.
For schools utilizing https://secureapi.studentclearinghouse.org/sssportalui/authenticate
