University of Delhi is planning to make transcripts available online for its University students.
Now, a student needs to do is register and pay online. The university will also provide its students with a personal identification number (PIN) while registering online. Students can then submit the PIN to the desired university or company, which can then access their transcripts directly from the DU server.
It was only two years back the university has digitized all marksheets. The move will make it easier for students to apply abroad and get their transcripts, and will also save time.
"We are ready with the plan and are now waiting for the finalization of the payment gateway, which the finance department is going to do. But if things go according to the plan, then this facility can be rolled out as early as December this year. In the meantime, we are also in the process of digitizing the transcripts for years previous to 2013," said a senior official at the exam branch of the university.
Undergraduate students, including those enrolled in the School of Open learning and Women's Non-Collegiate Board were all given online marksheets this year.
This new endeavor will likely bring down the price for getting the transcripts as well. But, the university is yet to take a final decision on this. "But it will cost less than the hard copy delivery process," said an exam branch official.
"The student has to first register using his/ her enrollment number as given by the exam branch. Then, one can select the document one is looking for. If the student wants a transcript, he/she has to make the payment online, following which the PIN will be sent to them,” said the same official.
Students can also place a request for a hard copy of their transcripts.
