Parchment Staff  •  May 17, 2016  •  Blog

Today, at the fifth annual meeting of the Groningen Declaration Network in Cape Town South Africa, Parchment announced its partnership with China Higher Education Student Information and Career Center (CHESICC), an authoritative institution directly under the Chinese Ministry of Education.

South Africa? China? Didn’t know that Parchment was international, did you? Let’s take a look at these five international facts about Parchment:

  1. In May 2015, Parchment CEO Matthew Pittinsky provided his “John Hancock”, making Parchment a signatory to the Groningen Declaration, a set of principles focused on improving student data mobility. This international document seeks common ground to best serve both the academic and professional mobility needs of learners around the world by bringing together key stakeholders in the Digital Student Data Ecosystem.
  2. Today’s announcement with CHESICC enables Parchment Receive members to accept verified Chinese academic credentials electronically and securely through CHESICC.  The CHESICC/Parchment delivery service is now live following a beta period during which University of Nebraska at Omaha received student records from CHESICC through Parchment using the same processes and workflows with which they process domestic transcripts and related records.
  3. Since 2014, Parchment has been engaged with TrueCopy, a leading exchange platform for electronic transcripts in India, enabling Parchment Receive members to verify academic credentials from India.
  4. The CHESICC relationship further expands Parchment’s international network of credential issuers, already spanning 45 countries.
  5. Parchment joins other key stakeholders in the Digital Student Data Ecosystem this week in Cape Town, South Africa for the fifth annual meeting of the Groningen Declaration Network.
