a free, open, secure, and principles-driven student data exchange ecosystem.

G.R.E.E.N. is the first set of established principles governing the exchange of electronic student data between networks and institutions.


Record high numbers of students are transferring between institutions and studying abroad. Efficient, fast electronic data exchange facilitates student mobility.


Transferring electronic student
records has never been so easy.
Records can be easily and
quickly exchanged at any point
within the ecosystem.


Smaller digital footprint protects
student privacy. Exchanges are
secure and compatible with current
and emerging electronic data exchange standards.

In creating G.R.E.E.N., our goal was to create a free, open, secure ecosystem to enable electronic student academic records to be securely exchanged worldwide. Students are increasingly mobile, and the access that G.R.E.E.N. creates offers a gateway by which schools anywhere can quickly and easily exchange records with one another.

- Rick Torres, President and CEO of the Clearinghouse.

Under G.R.E.E.N., all types of student data exchanges are possible:

G.R.E.E.N. offers a gateway through which schools everywhere can easily and quickly exchange records with one another, helping them meet the demands of an increasingly mobile student population. Management of G.R.E.E.N., a neutral and open environment, will be based upon longstanding principles developed by the education community for the University of Texas SPEEDEServer℠.

Hobsons and the National Student Clearinghouse® today announced a strategic alliance to enable cost-effective electronic transcript processing and delivery for high schools via the Clearinghouse's exchange networks, now operating under its recently announced G.R.E.E.N. principles.

Within the education industry, there has been an abundance of accepting G.R.E.E.N. Mike Reilly, the executive director of the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers stated his acceptance of it: "The Texas SPEEDE Server has served the higher education community well for nearly two decades. The G.R.E.E.N. network provides welcome continuity based on sound principles and proven standards."
