What Is Dual Enrollment? Trends, Benefits, and More
We believe hard work deserves recognition and that credentials should better represent learning. So, we made it happen.

We believe credentials matter in the lifelong journey of a learner, from applying to college to advancing a career – and everything in between.
For schools and universities, credentials play a leading role in supporting enrollment pathways, from admissions to transfer.
For employers, credentials help assess and develop the human capital of their workforce and support compliance processes.
Parchment credentials go beyond transcripts and diplomas to share a learner’s holistic story within a digital, dynamic, and comprehensive platform.
“I open LinkedIn and see students sharing their digital diploma because of Parchment Award, and I realized the incredible value that is for students as well as for the college. They are sharing with pride that they completed a credential at Ivy Tech, and they always tell our story way better than we ever can.
One of the greatest things about implementing the Parchment Award solution, is now I get to see students celebrating the accomplishment of completing their studies by linking their digital credential on LinkedIn. Parchment Award gives us a new tool set in order to help our students celebrate their accomplishments and to tell their story.
We get to watch students post about their completion, post their Ivy Tech story, and really become advocates for the college, but also for themselves. To have a digital credential that allows them to easily tell their story on social media has been so valuable for students.”

“It was very important to us to have a real partner that is adaptive, accessible, and responsive. Parchment has been an excellent partner and I recommend them highly.”
