Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority
More than 170 Kentucky high school athletes have sent their transcripts to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Clearinghouse through GoHigherKY.org, the state’s one-stop college planning Web site.
“I did my own trial run last year and it worked great, saving time, printing costs, and postage when I sent final transcripts at the end of the year,” said Denise Combs, a counselor at Hazard High School, about the service. “I just hope more colleges sign on for this.”
Combs added that submitting a transcript online ensures it does not get lost in the mail or routed to the wrong office.
This free online service is provided by the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA). KHEAA offers the service to streamline the college admissions process for Kentucky’s high school student-athletes. The clearinghouse uses the transcripts to help determine whether an athlete is eligible to play for an NCAA member institution. Being able to submit transcripts electronically speeds up the approval process for Kentucky students.
The transcript exchange system sends high school transcripts directly to the NCAA Eligibility Center and to participating colleges.
Elaine Brumback, who oversees the Web site for KHEAA, said the exchange system is secure, valuable tool for students, counselors and parents. GoHigherKY.org is powered by Xap Corporation.
