transcripts

Service provided as part of the
OSRHE’s

OKcollegestart.org
student portal

Allows transcripts to be transferred

from HS to Technology Centers and

colleges electronically (no paper!)


Benefits for High Schools


Available free of charge


Send transcripts securely and accurately


Save time and demands on staff


Track when transcripts are sent to
TC

or post
-
secondary
institutions


Requires no additional equipment and no costly photocopying
and mailing


Easy to implement and use


Benefits for Technology Centers


Save time for
TC

counselors since all Tech Centers ask for a transcript for
enrollment purposes (17,080 last year/2009 Annual Report)


With higher graduation requirements, counselors at
TC

can use transcript or an
extra “credit check” to make sure the student is on track to graduate


Technology Centers would have
EOI
, ACT, etc., tests scores much sooner because
they are now being posted to transcripts


Business and industry recognized endorsements are now being added to
transcripts (validates training received to company or college)


Saves environment (paperless)


No lost transcripts


Private and secure


Reliable and timely receipt of transcripts


Easy to implement and use


Currently…


264 high schools signed up (535 total HS)


77 colleges/universities and technology centers +
NCAA Eligibility Center +
OKPromise

signed up

-
transcripts sent to Tech Centers in 2010
