Why the USPS hates electronic Transcript transmission


The much maligned United States Postal Service has taken one body shot after another with a few upper cuts for good measure. The main reason the USPS is losing money, closing offices, and cutting staff is their business model depends on transferring information on written paper which has to be physically transported in vehicles that consume expensive fuel which take around three days to pay a bill or say happy birthday to Grandpa.

Less than one third of Americans pay their bills via snail mail which is another crushing blow to the USPS. I pay around 10 bills per month online at Charles Schwab with their free bill pay service. That is very close to five dollars a month in postage being saved!

Now the eTranscript network or eSS is electronically submitting thousands of bulky student transcripts to member colleges which is again devastating news for the USPS.

The following list of schools just got tired of waiting 3 or 4 days to process transcripts of potential enrollees and chose to receive transcripts via an electronic network which accelerates the enrollment process, cuts costs, and minimizes errors.

These institutions have the foresight to realize the efficiencies and hassle free effectiveness of handling student transcript requests.
