Kentucky eTranscript Streamlines College Admission Process
August 6, 2013 – Blaine, Minn. – The Commonwealth of Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) has developed a statewide electronic transcript initiative, “Kentucky eTranscript.” The adoption of eTranscripts will ease the college admissions process, reduce costs and save valuable time for stakeholders.
KDE recognized the advantages of establishing a data management system
that was uniform from state level to the smallest district. In 2006, it
chose Infinite Campus, the largest American-owned student information
system, to serve its 174 districts.
Infinite Campus is proud to partner with the elected eTranscript service provider, Parchment. Beginning of the 2013-14 school year, Kentucky public high school students can electronically send their transcripts to the 48 participating, Kentucky postsecondary members of Parchment at no cost.
“Infinite Campus pleased to extend Kentucky’s investment in their statewide Student Information System by supporting the Kentucky eTranscript initiative,” says Eric Creighton, Infinite Campus Chief Operating Officer. “Using innovative, forward-thinking technology to streamline processes provides significant cost saving for Kentucky’s taxpayers. While this functionality is available to all Campus customers nationwide, Kentucky is the first to make available at no charge to their graduating seniors. The use of eTranscripts will encourage more students to pursue a postsecondary education by simplifying the process for all stakeholders.”
Jefferson County Public Schools will be the first to make the system available district wide. By the end of 2013, Kentucky eTranscript should be available to students in public and private high schools across the entire state.
Our partnership with Parchment gives parents, guardians and students convenient online access to request, process and automate the delivery of eTranscripts to higher education institutions,” says Creighton. “With this alliance, our customers can rely on an integrated, secure method to submit education credentials.”
