King University News :: King University Transcripts Now Available Online

BRISTOL, Tenn., Sept. 5, 2014– King University now has a transcript process to complement a student’s graduate school and job application processes. The University’s Registrar Jessica Swiney partnered with Parchment to make official electronic transcripts available to current students and alumni. With Parchment, the leader in e-transcript exchange, education credentials are requested, sent and delivered electronically, securely and confidentially.

Now students and alumni can request an official transcript and send it to the university or employer of his/her choice with just a few clicks. The best part is transcripts can be requested anytime from anywhere by visiting http://registrar.king.edu.

Unless a student has a hold on his/her student account, transcripts will be sent to the requested destination within three to five business days. The cost is $5 per request with an additional cost for mailed copies depending upon the method of shipping. Students and alumni still have the option to pick up a free copy of their transcript during regular business hours at the main office on the Bristol campus.

Swiney said the change is in response to the number of students who have requested official electronic transcripts and an increase in other institutions that prefer electronic transcripts to paper ones. “Students can order transcripts online at their convenience and then use their account to track when it was sent or received. Automating the transcript process is critical to streamlining operations and enhancing student satisfaction; Parchment made the process as quick and seamless as possible.”

Full automation with Parchment provides a secure, easy-to-use online transcript solution and allows King University students and alumni to order, receive, send, and print transcripts in any format or to any data standard. “The result is greater operational efficiency along with significant cost savings, which will give King University’s Office of Registration and Records the ability to focus resources on higher-level activities and continuously improve our service to students,” added Swiney. “With this transparent process we are providing peace of mind as students work to realize their post-college ambitions. Online processing makes everything much faster.”

The Office of Registration and Records will provide graduates with two free transcripts along with their diploma after graduation. This new process will start with the Summer 2014 graduates.
