New credential wallet provides digital access to transcripts

Conestoga students and graduates now have convenient access to official transcripts with a digital credential wallet through the MyCreds™ platform.

A national shared service, MyCreds™ provides secure access to academic credentials which can be shared with post-secondary institutions, government, employers and other third parties. Documents issued through the platform are tamper-evident and cryptographically signed, making them authentic and legally valid. 

MyCreds™ is expected to modernize many aspects of the college’s registrarial services by streamlining customarily paper-based processes and practices. The platform will also further student engagement by putting credential ownership in the hands of learners.

“We strive to make service make sense and the MyCreds™ platform aligns perfectly with our student-centred approach,” said Janeen Hoover, director, registrarial services. “More than ever, digital services are becoming the norm and through MyCreds™, we can offer our students and alumni a digital experience that is innovative, reputable and convenient.”

The platform is owned by the Association of Registrars of the Universities and Colleges of Canada (ARUCC), which provides leadership and service to its member institutions, helping foster the advancement of registrarial practices and learner-focused service delivery in Canada.

“MyCreds™ is a natural fit for Conestoga College,” said Joanne Duklas, executive lead at ARUCC. “As a comprehensive fast-growing polytechnic serving many learners across multiple campuses, we are pleased to help the college extend their digitized service delivery by using innovative technology. Conestoga plus MyCreds™ represents a winning combination for mobile learners and graduates.”
