Resources to help you better understand the Mastery Transcript
MTC is working with representatives from leading colleges and universities, as well as other higher ed partners, to support sustainable change in higher education admissions. We offer colleges an alternative to the traditional transcript: one that offers more nuance and depth than grades and GPA’s, while still providing consistency and validity for admission purposes.
Our work supports three priorities
Identify, connect, and engage
influential institutions of higher education willing to lead for innovation in higher education admissions
Support institutions of higher education
to and make necessary shifts to admissions policy and practice within their institutions.
Engage partner institutions as advocates
for sustainable policy and practice change across the field of higher education through advocacy and technical support.
Higher Ed Advisory Group
Our Higher Ed Advisory Group (HEAG) is a strong group of undergraduate admissions leaders from a range of colleges and universities. Each member is crucial to us as we gather feedback on the transcript and ensure our efforts align with the perspectives of admissions professionals.
