Applying overseas for jobs or higher education will be a lot easier for students of DU as the university is planning to make student transcripts available online.
Delhi University students might soon be able to enjoy a hassle free process of transcript submission when applying to universities or MNCs abroad.
This is because DU is planning to make the transcripts available online.
Thus, instead of moving from one building to another to arrange for transcripts on time, the students will just need to register using their enrolment numbers, select the required documents, and pay online. After this, they will be provided with a personal identification number (PIN) that they can submit to the specific university or company. Different institutions can then access students’ transcripts directly from the DU server with just the PIN. Students can also place a request for a hard copy of the transcript if required.
The digitisation of transcripts will make it very easy for students to apply for higher studies or jobs abroad, and will also save them a lot of time and money. A senior official at the exam branch of the university informed the Times of India that they are ready with the final plan and are waiting for the payment gateway to be set up, which will be done by the finance department.
“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 digitising the transcripts for years previous to 2013,” he said.
The final decision on the price of online transcripts has not been taken yet, but there is a chance that it will be reduced.
The university has already digitised all mark sheets from the past two years, and undergraduate students, including those in School of Open Learning and Women’s Non-Collegiate Board, got online mark sheets this year. Mark sheets of postgraduate students of nine departments are also available online as of now.
