Olympic College has received notice from the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) that the clearinghouse was one of many entities recently impacted by a data security event involving the MOVEit Transfer tool, a widely used file sharing application.

NSC is actively monitoring this situation.
Olympic College shares student enrollment data with the NSC. Some of the data shared with the clearinghouse includes personally identifiable information. NSC has not yet identified what sensitive information was accessed or who was affected.
The safety and security of our students is our top priority, and we remain committed to thoroughly assessing any potential impacts on students and alumni. This cyber breach did not impact Olympic College’s network or internal systems.
If you have been affected by this breach, we will contact you in the coming weeks when the NSC provides specific details on who was affected and what was accessed.
