Parchment Staff  •  Jan 10, 2024  •  Blog

Did you know? Parchment is the one and only PeopleSoft OVI Certified electronic transcript provider. That means we have a PeopleSoft integration and we can provide all the best-in-class features of Parchment Award Transcript Services. We’re pretty proud of this accomplishment.

Here’s what Parchment’s Oracle Validated Integration with PeopleSoft Campus Solutions means for your SIS and transcript request process.

The PeopleSoft integration details

Parchment’s transcript automation integration provides several benefits and necessities, including:

  • Integration with your institution’s current student pass-through authentication
  • Real-time authentication of alumni and self-registering students with Search Match
  • Transcript service indicator checks to catch anything that may prevent credential ordering
  • Automated processing of print and digital transcript requests
  • Support for inCommon and SAML
  • Paper transcript fulfillment from your office or Parchment’s secure print facility
  • Support for existing data process without disrupting trading partners
  • Native PeopleSoft transcript data support

The process works like this: Parchment Transcript Services provides a simple online process for students to request transcripts. The OVI integration then uses real-time web services through the PeopleSoft Integration Broker to authenticate students and notify them of any transcript-impacting service indicators. When all is good, the system inserts a PESC standard transcript request into the baseline PeopleSoft Campus Solutions process. Parchment delivers a package with an app-engine, which uses PeopleSoft-delivered objects to create the transcript in XML publisher – all done without any involvement on your end.

Side note: We can tweak the process if your school uses a legacy transcript engine or works outside of the XML publisher.

The ease of setup

The steps to your SIS integration are easy, and you’ll have Parchment’s support the entire way. It starts with the kickoff, and then we’ll match our best practices in registrar workflows with your needs and preferences during the design stage. From there, we configure or modify the connector and train your team. Next up is testing before complete deployment. We can complete the integration on-site or remotely – the choice is yours.
