CBU implements online transcript request process
Riverside, Calif. (Nov. 12, 2018) – Students and alumni from California Baptist University can now receive an official transcript within an hour thanks to a new online service launched by the Office of the University Registrar on Nov. 12.
“The emphasis is on faster and more efficient service for our students,” said Joel Mead, assistant registrar for support services.
The Office of the University Registrar is working with Credentials Solutions, a technology service company, to process transcript requests within an hour, as long as a student’s account has no holds. Previously, processing such requests took two to three days. The cost of an official transcript remains at $10 for one copy.
“The University Registrar is always seeking ways to be more effective with our services,” said Shawnn Koning, university registrar.
“For individuals who are looking for employment, which can be a large portion of our transcript requests, time sensitivity is important,” Koning said. “By automating, we’re enabling those students to get those records there a lot more efficiently.”
The office is also working to automate degree verification and enrollment verification, Koning added.
“The transcript request is step one of trying to implement some new technology to increase services to students,” Koning said.
