“Many of today’s students change colleges at least once,” according to Michael Mathews, chief strategist for innovation and entrepreneurship at Lone Star College-University Park. After students move on, they can’t access records outside of their transcript and diploma, he added. However, if students and parents owned their information, they could access more information through the ECPS anywhere at any time.
Besides unrestricted access, another benefit of using such a system includes career planning and development. The ECPS can assist students in determining the courses they need for a particular field. Thus, students stay on-track, graduate faster and find a job in their specific field.
