Get Faster in the Admissions Office
Annually, almost all transcripts received by higher education institutions are electronically transmitted as PDFs. The manual entry of transcript data is a painful and time-consuming process. It’s time to get rid of that manual processing once and for all.
Save Time for More Important Projects
Manually keying the data for a single transcript — including dozens of courses with numerous terms, class titles, units, and grades — into your student information system (SIS) can take 20 minutes or more. With Parchment Receive Premium + Data Automation, each transcript can be processed in just one click.
Process Transcripts Faster Than Ever Before
Depending on the higher education institution, documents for anywhere from 100 to 100,000 applicants are received during each admissions cycle, and most of that happens at peak times of the year. Get rid of that backlog of transcripts by having Parchment do the heavy lifting for you.
Obtain More Data for Better Admissions Decisions
With Data Automation comes the ability to extract — at your fingertips — more nuanced information for a more holistic view of your applicants. More data equates to more sound admissions decisions.
Increase Your Admit Yield
Not only do you make better decisions with Parchment Receive Premium + Data Automation, but you are also able to meet the quick timelines that students expect in order to plan their next steps. Faster admissions decisions mean proactively engaging with students earlier and potentially increasing admit yield.
Provide a Better Prospective Student Experience
A student’s experience with your institution begins long before they even set foot on your campus grounds. With Parchment Receive Premium + Data Automation on your side, your prospective student maintains a positive experience with your institution, with fewer manual processing errors and quicker admissions decisions.
How it Works
The ability to streamline and seamlessly import transcripts being sent as PDFs from high schools to higher education institutions as data – vis-a-vis artificial intelligence (AI) utilizing algorithms, optimization, and optical character recognition (OCR) – is a pivotal turning point that yields multiple benefits for college and university Admissions offices.
You upload a student’s PDF or imaged transcript.
Parchment’s Data Automation add-on automatically extracts transcript data (terms, enrollments, grades, course titles).
You post the student’s data into PeopleSoft almost entirely touch-free with Parchment Receive Premium.
