Does your child have plans for going to college? Sending off your kid’s paperwork is a little complicated if they’ve been homeschooled most of their life.
You’ll have to create their homeschool transcripts on your own and get them to the college of your kid’s choice. There are a couple of ways you can go about it.
You could talk to your partner school. There are also services out there that you can use.
If you don’t have access to these tools, or you don’t want to use them, you can take care of the paperwork by yourself. Check out this guide to learn more.
What Do You Put on a Transcript?
So, what do you put on a homeschool transcript? The first thing is the name of your homeschool. If it doesn’t have a name, you can always write down “homeschool” and call it a day.
You’ll also need to include your contact information, your address, the name of your student, the year your student is set to graduate, their birthday, and all their school records.
As far as their grade records go, you’ll have to write down the name of the class, the grade level of the class, the number of credits they got from it, and the grade that they received.
Use a Service
One of the easiest ways to get your child’s paperwork is to use a fake transcripts service. It will prompt you to type in all your kid’s information.
After you do, it will generate a professional-looking transcript that almost any college will accept. All you have to do is print it out and send it off.
Talk to Your Partner School
If you’re working with a partner school to educate your child, we have good news for you.
You most likely have access to services that you can use to get your child’s transcripts. Talk to your school about your options.
Make Your Own
The last option you’ve got is the most complex one. You can make your own homeschooler transcript.
The hardest bit of the job is keeping up with your child’s classes and grades from the beginning of their high school career to the end. We recommend investing in good record-keeping software.
Next, look up the special requirements for the college of your child’s choice and include those.
Once you have all the information you need, you can plug it in. If you’re sending out your child’s homeschool high school transcript before they finish their senior classes, you can include them, but you won’t be able to include the grades yet.
Prepare Your Child’s Homeschool Transcripts
Applying to colleges gets a bit complicated when your child is homeschooled. There’s a lot of paperwork that you’ll have to fill out on your own.
That includes their homeschool transcripts. Follow the steps provided to give their college of choice all the information they need.
