The typical high school student who plans on pursuing additional education applies to between five and 10 colleges. Each of those applications requires an official transcript, which in most Ohio high schools are still printed by staff and sent via standard mail.
In 2013, there is a better way.
The Ohio Department of Education is launching the Ohio e-Transcript Project which will provide schools and students a free and easy way to send high school transcripts to public and private colleges, around the state and throughout the Midwest. The Electronic Transcript system is a joint project of ODE and the Ohio Board of Regents, who are working with national vendor Docufide to launch e-Transcript service in the fall of 2013.
