The University of Montana and 10 other institutions served as beta schools to test the new, secure, automated service. “My staff and I spoke last year with the Clearinghouse’s Regional Director Dannette Sullivan about being a beta school because we’ve been using the Clearinghouse’s electronic transcript service for a while,” said University of Montana Registrar Joe Hickman. “Printing transcripts was one of our slowest services. I was employing three people to do nothing but process transcripts at that time and mail them out.

“So we looked at the print service, thought about what it could do for us, tested it and immediately realized what a boon it was going to be for our students. Suddenly students were going to get tracking with all of their mail transcripts, something we couldn’t provide. When I was printing the paper transcript in-house, I was losing money every time I mailed a paper transcript. Now, our students are not only getting faster service but also it’s costing me less in labor and supplies. It’s fundamentally changed the nature of our office.

“Because of the National Student Clearinghouse, I now have staff doing software testing instead so we are looking for ways to make a more dynamic credential, co-curricular transcripts, and other innovative efforts. Now, I am banking money, looking at new software purchases and becoming a 21st century office.

“As we are going through these kind of novel processes whether electronic or printed transcripts, having the Clearinghouse as a partner that we can call and say, ‘Here are the issues we see, can you help our students, our alums, and my staff through this?’ goes a long way in serving our community and my staff.”

If you can’t attend our November webinar, please join us on Tuesday, December 12, at 2 pm, ET.

“Because of the National Student Clearinghouse, I have changed our office where we don’t have people processing paper transcripts anymore and doing manual processes. I now have staff doing software testing instead so we are looking for ways to make a more dynamic credential, co-curricular transcripts, and other innovative efforts…and becoming a 21st century office.”
