– On Tuesday, July 9th, Credentials Solutions hosted the Illinois electronic transcripts Forum at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare. The goal of the event was to bring community colleges and universities from across Illinois together to have an open dialogue about electronic transcripts and begin laying the groundwork for the formation of a statewide electronic network.
“We want to create a spark that will lead to a large electronic transcript network in Illinois,” said CEO Thomas McKechney. “The potential to send a high percentage of transcripts electronically and significantly reduce the volume of paper transcripts is at the tipping point.”
The following schools attended the forum: Governors State University, Illinois Institute of Technology, Illinois State University, Joliet Junior College, Lake Land College, Lewis University, Loyola University, McHenry County College, Northeastern Illinois University, Roosevelt University, Shawnee Community College and Southern Illinois University
Credentials Solutions will continue building its sending and receiving network so an increasing volume of schools can exchange EDI, XML and PDF transcripts. “We want to apply our experience developing electronic networks in California, New York and Wisconsin and replicate that success in Illinois,” added Terence Reed, Vice President of Operations. “We can help Illinois schools develop an extensive electronic network with little or no effort on the part of the institutions.”
