ASU and MCCCD use blockchain to help transfer students

Arizona State University is teaming up with Maricopa Community Colleges and utilizing blockchain to share academic records of transfer students to help determine when they have earned enough credits to be given an associate’s degree, even if they’re studying at the university. This process is known as reverse transfer, can potentially open the door for students to receive a two-year degree even if they have not completed their bachelor’s degree. Partnering up with Salesforce, ASU’s EdPlus wing is forming a student data network that will let colleges share and verify academic records using blockchain technology. Blockchain is an append-only, meaning you can only add data and not alter or delete it, transaction ledger.
