MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Recent graduates of West Virginia University could soon obtain electronic versions of their transcripts.
Graduates currently can order their transcripts electronically. But they receive a physical document.
Registrar Steve Robinson tells The Dominion Post that WVU officials hope to begin offering secure electronic transcripts over the next several weeks.
However, the option will be available only to graduates dating back to 1997. Robinson says all documentation prior to 1997 was done on paper and is not in the university's computer system.
Robinson says demand for immediate access to transcripts is increasing.
