Security XML Certificate Update
On April 15, 2020, the National Student Clearinghouse will renew the SSL certificate that encrypts all data exchanged via our xml site (xml.studentclearinghouse.org). Because xml data exchange relies on server-to-server communications, our SSL certificate renewal may impact the ability of your system to communicate effectively with the Clearinghouse’s systems.
As a result, it is CRITICAL that your system administrator downloads and installs the new DigiCert certificate by or before April 15, 2020. This routine procedure, which should only take a few minutes for your system administrator to complete, will ensure uninterrupted access after April 15th.
Download the following certificates and add them to your trust store.
- Root Certificate – DigiCert Global Root CA
- Intermediate Certificate – DigiCert SHA2 Secure Server CA
- xml.StudentClearinghouse.org certificate – NSC xml site certificate
