National Transcript Center (NTC)

Definition: Partnering with K-12 schools, state education agencies, colleges and universities, and co-academic organizations, the National Transcript Center network allows member institutions to communicate with the NTC server using the open standard of its choice. A proprietary data translation engine expands the trading partner network to include schools on any major protocol.

What This Means: States are using NTC to help districts exchange standard transcripts with postsecondary institutions and with each other when a student moves to another district. Districts get an extract from their student information systems which is then sent to NTC where it is translated into PESC High School Transcript format, the SIF Student Record Exchange format, or the EDI SPEEDE/ExPRESS format. Some states also have their own proprietary format. The beauty of NTC is that it is easy for school registrars and counselors to use, and the received can be downloaded into the student information system without rekeying.
