Our Mission

Turning credentials into opportunities for decades.

happy parchment conference attendees

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.

What members are saying…

“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.”
