The City University of New York (CUNY) has partnered with Parchment as the service provider to process all CUNY Institution’s transcript orders online. Its service delivers automated processing of official academic transcripts where current, former and alumni students have the ability to access this web ordering service in obtaining their official academic transcripts.
