Emporia State University to Launch eTranscripts Service from National Student Clearinghouse and Ellucian

Emporia State University is on the cutting edge of technology after launching a new electronic transcript system that enables students to request and receive their transcripts at their convenience. The new system - Ellucian eTranscripts - is a service of National Student Clearinghouse and Ellucian. With the launch of the eTranscript service, Emporia State University is the first Banner client offering the service. IT and the registrar's office held daily calls with both National Student Clearinghouse and Ellucian, assisting in the identification of problems in the process and testing the many different scenarios of student types, transcript types and destination types. After authenticating their identities, submitting their transcript requests and paying for them, most students will have a PDF of their transcripts within 20 to 30 minutes. Students can also ask that the transcripts be sent elsewhere, for instance, to another college or university for a graduate school application. The new eTranscript system is an added benefit for students.
