Electronic Transcripts: The Future Is Now

Tuesday, March 13 | 12:30PM–1:20PM | Room 554
Session Type: NC12

Employers, schools, and other organizations are increasingly requiring electronic transcripts from our students, and students expect real-time, online services. The promise of faster, better service, with fewer lines and less paper should be a no-brainer, but it's not as easy as it sounds. Hear how MIT responded to this need by implementing an end-to-end solution, one that allows students and alumni from the past 60 years to request transcripts online, with electronic transcripts delivered as secure PDFs. Learn how MIT integrated a third-party solution with custom development to provide near-instantaneous delivery while allowing MIT administrators to focus on providing better service.
