Ok, you’ve been getting a lot of transcripts. Some come by mail and you have to file them or keep them somewhere securely. Some come over email and you have to either store them digitally somewhere or print them out and file them as well.

Did you know that all of those academic transcripts you have been receiving (both paper and email) are coming through one credential platform: Parchment?

The Parchment Platform not only lets students and schools quickly find your office and send you their transcripts, but also helps you collect, manage, and organize those transcripts once you’ve received them. Parchment connects academic institutions, companies, government agencies, and learners with innovative technology solutions that streamline both sending and receiving transcripts.
