Here are a few more items you may find useful when conducting a search:

Search Instructions

  • All searches are case-insensitive.
  • Enter your search criteria.
  • Fewer search terms will speed your search.
  • Click the “Search” button.
  • You will be shown a list of matches. From this list click a member’s name for more detailed information.
  • Partial searches are permitted.

Hints and Tips

  • Leaving the Search Criteria boxes empty will return all of the listings in the database. This is a long list so it may take time to load the page.
  • The search will hunt for the query in the exact order it is input. If “Commerce Student Loan Corp.” is input and the database lists it as “Commerce Student Loan Liquidity Corporation”, nothing will be returned.
  • If you are not sure how a listing would be in the database, try a small portion – ex. “Commerce” or “Commerce Student,” or “Student Loan.”
  • Starting with a more broad-based search can often yield results faster. For example, if you type “p” in the institution field, you will get all the institutions that contain the letter “p” (polytechnic, Palmer Institute, Central Corporation, etc.). If you change the query to “po”, the returns are narrowed (polytechnic, Central Corporation, etc.) “Por” gathers fewer returns and so forth.
  • The search expression “ston” under last name, will return names such as Johnston, Stone or Marstoner.
