New High School Online Transcripts

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Public high school students in Kentucky may find it easier to have records sent to colleges and universities now that their schools are online with electronic transcripts.

Kentucky education officials say the transcripts can be sent directly to 44 public or private colleges and universities in Kentucky as well as participating schools outside the state.

The Kentucky Department of Education, Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education and Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority worked together on the project. The agencies said in a news release Wednesday that students are able to request transcripts 24 hours a day, seven days a week online at http://www.parchment.com .

Previously, counselors had to physically handle transcript requests, which sometimes were a cost to the student.

The agencies said implementation of the program at private high schools continues.
