Northwest Tech graduates will no longer have to hunt through old boxes and closets looking for their diploma. The college has recently established a new program to offer digital diplomas for graduates completing their studies in 2018. Parchment Services creates digital diplomas for graduates, so they are easily accessible online once a student completes their studies at Northwest Tech. Students will rapidly receive their diploma online after graduation, and it will be stored securely on Parchment servers. More importantly, graduates can view their diploma, download it, share a verified link with employers, or share on LinkedIn or Facebook.
“It will amplify our student’s marketability with credentials that can go with them anywhere,” said Northwest Tech President Schears. “Students will no longer have to worry about whether they lost their diploma and quickly be able to provide credentials to potential employers.” Students who prefer the traditional diploma will still be able to request a traditional paper copy of their diploma after graduation. Northwest Tech will become only the second college in the state to sign on with the digital diploma service through Parchment.
