#1 - COLLEGES PREFER ELECTRONIC FILING

Paper transcripts can slow down a student's application.

Sending digital transcripts is especially important during the COVID crisis as nearly all admissions departments are working from home. One university said they process digital applications 2 weeks prior to their paper counterparts.

Parchment.com is accepted by 4,397 colleges and has processed over 20 million transcripts to date.


#2 - NO, THE SENDER ADDRESS IS NOT AN ERROR

When you create an electronic transcript using Parchment.com, you’ll notice that the sending organization is listed as:

Homeschool Clearinghouse, 400 West Peachtree Street NW, Suite 4 - 550, Atlanta, GA 30308.

In order for homeschoolers to be able to file electronic transcripts like their public and private school peers, they need a unified sending organization.



#3 - ELECTRONIC TRANSCRIPTS MAKE DATA EASY TO PROCESS

Your beautiful one-page PDF transcript is really useful for demonstrating all the hard work you and your teen have put in.

But when it comes to sending your teen's high school transcript to prospective colleges and universities, it can be more helpful to do so electronically in a format that will be easily processed by different types of software.

The electronic format will look different than the PDF version.
