Slide 31 Students I love the no-hassle aspect of Secure Transcript. I didn't have to worry about gathering any information on my own; Secure Transcript did all of the hard work for me. -Natalie Jones, CA Student High Schools Docufide has been an incredible resource to our school and school district. Their product performs extremely well (as well as or better than I expected - after reviewing their marketing documents). Customer service is exceptional (they say what they mean and mean what they say). Initial electronic transmission was planned and implemented flawlessly. Docufide is sincerely one of the best technology/educational support organizations I have had the pleasure to associate in my past 23 years in education. -Dr. Randall W. Peterson, Principal, Eastview High School, MN Colleges The University of MinnesotaTwin Cities strongly supports the electronic submission of transcripts from secondary schools. We feel that both students and educators can benefit from electronic submission: Students can easily request transcripts and follow-up on their delivery, high school counselors and registrars can easily send and track information, and our staff members can more quickly receive and process transcripts. -George Hudachek, Senior Associate Director of Admissions - University of Minnesota State Agencies We are very pleased to be able to offer this service to our students. It saves time, worry and money for students, as well as for high school guidance counselors and post secondary admissions people. Our relationship with Docufide throughout this process has been excellent. -Dr. Suellen Reed, Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Why Docufide? Why Docufide?
