Why do we use Parchment to send transcript?
SBA students are required to submit all transcript requests using Parchment. The most important reason that students are required to use Parchment is because it provides the benefit and security of being able to track the delivery of your transcript. Parchment provides a record of the date your transcript was ordered, the date it was received and downloaded by the college. There is no way to track transcripts mailed through USPS. Colleges receive tens of thousands of transcripts during their application season. It can take 4-6 weeks for a college to acknowledge and record the receipt of a transcript received through USPS. This causes stress for the applicant and a lot of extra work and phone calls for high school and college admissions counselors trying to locate "lost" transcripts. The electronic tracking information provided by Parchment is crucial when deadlines are an issue.
