California State Universities Now Sending PDF Transcripts

July 02, 2015

NORTHFIELD, IL – Credentials eScrip-Safe can now send In-Network and Out-of-Network PDF transcripts electronically through TranscriptsNetwork™ and the eScrip-Safe Network on behalf of California State University institutions. Dominguez Hills, Fresno State and San Bernardino are the first campuses to utilize PDF sending.

“This initiative was a collaborative effort between Credentials, the California State University System and the Common Management System,” said Kevin Klemke, Senior Vice President of Technical Support at Credentials eScrip-Safe. “This was not just about helping our client institutions but also creating expedited delivery options for students and alumni.”

The issue was that instances of the RoboRegistrar® processing automation software running at the schools cannot read a file locally, since the PeopleSoft servers for the CSUs are located in Utah. The application servers at the institutions could not read a file from disk via Virtual Private Network either. Therefore, Credentials installed RoboRegistrar in Utah, enabling one-way communication between the schools and the servers to extract the transcript data for PDFs. 

Credentials hopes to have more CSUs sending PDF transcripts in the coming months. Adding this functionality reduces costs associated with paper transcripts fulfillment and streamlines delivery, ensuring transcripts reach their destination more efficiently.
