Course Sharing

As instructional costs rise and student demand for flexibility increases, it can feel impossible to stay within budget while trying to expand academic opportunity and ensure students can graduate on time. But with Parchment, it isn’t just possible – it’s easier than ever before.

A Proven Solution to Streamline Course Sharing

Parchment Course Sharing is a digital solution that enables state systems, consortia, and groups of institutions to collaboratively offer courses to each other’s students to count for credit at their home institution. 

By creating a shared catalog, streamlining inventory management, and automating complex workflows, Parchment delivers the functionality and flexibility you need to optimize collaboration, expand access to academic offerings, and improve on-time completion.

Help Students Finish Faster

Help students graduate faster with a digital-first experience that makes it easy to find and register for the courses they need, when they need them, from partner institutions. Eliminating barriers to completing degree requirements increases their chances of on-time completion.

Improve Student Retention

When students have access to academic opportunity and an efficient path to graduation, there’s less incentive to go elsewhere. Increase retention by providing more course options to help students stay on track and increasing access to subject areas you aren’t able to offer.

Optimize Resources. Reduce Costs.

Save big on both costs and headaches by collaborating to share instructional resources with partner institutions. Combine underutilized sections and free up resources to increase course inventory and serve more students. When you share the load, everyone wins.

Save Time By Automating Workflows

Eliminate the time-consuming manual processes associated with transient student enrollment and registration. Secure integrations with your SIS and other IT infrastructure automate processes and catalog updates, freeing up time for staff to focus on more important efforts.
