Electronic Transcript Exchange and Data Services for High Schools and Colleges through THEC
High schools and higher education institutions can send electronic transcripts through updated service
All Tennessee high schools can now send electronic transcripts of current or recent students. The Electronic Transcript Exchange is now available from the Tennessee Higher Education Commission (THEC) for use in all 129 high school districts and 432 public high schools and to all Tennessee higher education institutions. The Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation (TSAC) will also provide data through the exchange. Schools can participate by joining the new Tennessee Electronic Transcript Exchange Network.
The Electronic Transcript Exchange Network provides a means for Tennessee high schools to submit transcript data to higher education institutions for admissions purposes and to TSAC for Tennessee Education Lottery Scholarship (TELS) eligibility determination. Beginning in the 2016-17 school year, the State of Tennessee has transitioned to the National Student Clearinghouse as its new electronic transcript exchange vendor. NSC is a nonprofit and the largest provider of electronic transcript services in the United States. To date, 225 of the state’s 432 public high schools have joined the network.
High schools and districts can sign up to join the free Tennessee Electronic Transcript Exchange Network at https://studentclearinghouse.info/tn/.
This spring, the NSC and THEC will host full-day, free professional development “mini-academies” in Memphis, Nashville, and Knoxville for K-12 and postsecondary schools who are looking to learn more about electronic transcripts. The mini-academy events will take place the week of March 28th. Schools and postsecondary institutions will receive an email invitation with registration information for their local mini-academy event in the coming weeks.

“I am excited about this functionality. Coming from a former high school counselor, this would have made my job much easier. The documentation made completing the steps incredibly easy, and now school administrators have an easier system to enter records for the Tennessee Promise Scholarship.”
