Nebraska e-Transcript Initiative
Technology has finally been applied to the college application process.
The Nebraska Department of Education and the Nebraska Coordinating Commission for Postsecondary Education (CCPE) are pleased to announce the implementation of the Nebraska e-Transcript Initiative. This voluntary initiative allows Nebraska students and high schools to request and send transcripts electronically to other e-Transcript-registered institutions in Nebraska and select Midwestern States. Transcripts are sent through a secure service offered by Docufide, a provider of educational records management services.
This initiative is funded through 2010 by a U.S. Department of Education grant, which covers the cost of the rollout, technical support and most transcript transmission costs for all Nebraska public and private high schools and colleges. Students or parents can have high school transcripts sent to colleges and universities participating in the e-Transcript Initiative in Nebraska and select Midwestern states at little to no cost. Transcripts can be electronically sent to institutions in other states for a modest fee.
To register your high school or postsecondary institution to send or receive transcripts electronically, please contact Heather House at firstname.lastname@example.org or (763) 767-4716.
