eTranscript introduced to help Kentucky high school seniors


Associated Press

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky's high school seniors will soon be able to send electronic transcripts to the state's colleges by using a free process called Kentucky eTranscript.
The electronic transcript system is meant to ease the stress and expense of the college admissions process.
Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson said Monday that electronic transcripts will streamline the process. In some cases, he said, students will be able to complete the admissions process totally online.
Jefferson County will be the first to make the eTranscript system available districtwide.
Kentucky eTranscript should be available to students statewide by March 2014.
Kentucky's eTranscript is provided free to high school students, school districts and colleges and universities.
There's a $2 charge for students to send transcripts to non-participating colleges.
A secure online portal will keep student information confidential.
