“The Official Service Transcript is now live and with it, college admissions officers can be assured that student hours have been authenticated,” said Michele Pitman, founder and CEO of intelliVOL. “This type of credential also greatly benefits students who can easily send digital records about service for college applications and scholarship applications.”
Schools and districts using x2VOL can deliver verified digital transcripts via Parchment to colleges and universities. College admissions offices can receive those digital student transcripts and be confident the student’s reported hours were verified and approved at two points: by the nonprofit or charitable organization, and by the school advisor, teacher, or other administrator.
“We’re so excited to reach this milestone and be able to help so many students deliver their Official Service Transcript to College and University admissions offices across the nation,” said Matthew Pittinsky, CEO of Parchment. “Getting quality information about community service – not just numbers – can be a real advantage during the competitive admission process, and we’re happy to help make getting access to this information easier.”
When asked about how the Official Service Transcript would help students Principal Jill Stafford, from Lowery Freshman Center in Allen, Texas said, “The best part – and the reason that sold me on x2VOL years ago – was that there is a service transcript that keeps track of student service throughout high school so the students are prepared when they apply to colleges. The service transcript contains what was actually approved and verified instead of students trying to remember that they did.”
x2VOL has tracked, reported and managed over 20 million approved student service hours and is the largest, most comprehensive system available to schools and districts. Parchment’s digital credential services are available to more than 95 percent of colleges.
