East Central University is partnering with Credentials Solutions to streamline its entire transcript process. The university chose Credentials for its ability to provide online ordering and automatically send electronic transcripts and mail paper transcripts through the same partner.
Students and alumni can now order their official transcripts online using Credentials’ easy-to-use and mobile-friendly ordering service TranscriptsPlus®. Once an order is placed, Credentials’ proprietary software RoboRegistrar® compares the information provided by the requester to the information in the university’s student information system. If the information matches and there are no holds on the account, the order will be processed without ever being touched by a staff member. This automation has allowed the university to redeploy staff to other projects within the registrar’s office.
Transcripts are sent by mail or electronically, giving students and alumni options on how their orders are fulfilled. If a transcript is sent by mail, it is printed at a Credentials-owned facility and sent via USPS or FedEx. Electronic transcripts are sent through TranscriptsNetwork™, the largest sending and receiving network serving higher education. eTranscripts are delivered almost instantaneously and have decreased the amount of paper used.
Accompanying these automated solutions is Credentials’ customer service for both the university and end users. If there are any problems with transcript orders, Customer Service Representatives are available Monday – Friday to student and alumni. The university is assigned a dedicated Client Relationship Manager for any questions or issues that the registrar staff may have.
East Central University is the 5th institution in Oklahoma to go live with Credentials’ services.
