KCKCC launches fully automated transcript exchange

Kansas City Kansas Community College has taken yet another step in “Making Life Better” for its more than 7,000 currently enrolled students, as well as, KCKCC Alumni.

Working in partnership with Parchment Inc., KCKCC has launched a Parchment solution to fully automate the College’s transcript request process.

Full automation with Parchment allows a student to order a transcript electronically, and enables institutions to receive, send, and print transcripts in any format or data standard. The result is greater operational efficiency along with significant cost savings, a winning combination for schools and the students they serve.

“Getting to a simple, true end-to-end integration is always the goal for an institution but not always the result,” said Dr. Denise McDowell, Dean of Enrollment Management and Registrar at KCKCC. “With Parchment Exchange, I had great confidence that the integration would be seamless and fast and my expectations have been exceeded.”

According to Dr. McDowell the completion of the E-Transcript Request Pilot will enable a campus-wide launch starting this summer 2013. Parchment takes the paper hassles out of transcript processing and transcripts sent electronically are fully secure and FERPA compliant.

Fully operational for KCKCC students and alumni, there is no charge for transcripts sent electronically within the Parchment Exchange network and only a nominal fee for transcripts sent outside the network. Generally requests are processed within the same business day. Request an electronic transcript at

A leader in E-Transcript exchange with more than 7,400 member institutions, Parchment offers a broad range of integration options for schools and colleges of all sizes.

KCKCC Alumni who have academic credit prior to 1983 or attended ATS, formerly known as AVTS, prior to 2009 will not be able to request transcripts through Parchment. 

These students must submit a written request directly to Transcript Services in the Admissions and Records Office or visit the KCKCC website at, under quick links and click on Transcript Services and follow the links.
